16 Sydney breakfasts you need to eat in 2016

 If you ask us what our favourite meal of the day is, we’d be hard pushed to give you an answer. So many delicious options to choose from. However, if we begin with the most important one, we’re off to a good start. 2016 has really raised the bar in terms of breakfast tucker. Here’s a quick guide to the ones you don’t want to miss:


#1. Yellow

This popular bistro has recently switched to an all-vegetarian degustation at dinner but meat is still on the breakfast menu. Famous for their thick cut bacon and legendary liquorice bread, you won’t be disappointed here.


57 Macleay Street, Potts Point  02 9332 2344


#2 Sunday brunch at Brigade Dining

Satisfy your breakfast pork obsession with their Feijoada Portuguese stew – full of ham hock, chorizo, pork belly, black beans, with a fried egg on sourdough. If you’re after something sweet (or a dessert) the ricotta pancakes with Keejo maple syrup, berries and crème fraiche are not to be missed.


Corner of Jersey Road and Melrose Lane, Woollahra 02 9357 0815


#3 Paramount Coffee Project

Sweet or savoury, solid or liquid, this breakfast offering will have your tastebuds bouncing off the roof of your mouth. No matter how you like your coffee, these guys have it perfected- from flat whites to pour over to cold drip, it’s sure to be magic.


80 Commonwealth St, Surry Hills 02 9211 1122


#4 Café Rumah

Feast on traditional Sydney cafe staples with an Asian twist. Malaysian inspired, it’s everything you’d hope for and more. If you want our advice, try the Kaya-Filled Madeleines Baked to Order. There are no words, just mmmmmmmmmmmm.


71 Campbell Street, Surry Hills


#5 Vietnamese brunch at So 9

Rolling with the Asian flavours this ever changing Vietnamese brunching menu is delicious.


Shop 1, CASBA, 18 Danks Street, Waterloo 02 8542 7137


#6 Alpha

When you just want a bagel, then the Ouzo cured Trout bagel from Alpha is your calling. With manouri cheese and capers, some things in life are just meant to be.


238 Castlereagh Street, Sydney 02 9098 1111



#7 Edition

Who’d have thought Scando-Japenese food could be so damn delicious! Liverpool Street will never be the same again as the sweet scent of baking wafts its way up and down. The coffee is so good, they’ve even got it bottled and batched for you.


265 Liverpool Street, Darlinghurst


#8 Meet Gerrard

If smashed avocado on toast is your favourite go-to breakfast, then you have to experience this unexpected twist. With house-pickled chilli and yuzu toasted sesame seeds, there’s a citrus tingle to the feta and coriander. And, you can always add egg and/or bacon to really boost the brekkie. Yum.


54, Henderson Road, Alexandria 02 8021 7211


#9 Janani

If you’re looking for a taste adventure, then Janani is where you’ll find it. We’d certainly never heard of Indian Tapas before. Traditional South Indian food, you’ll be hard-pressed (if it’s even possible) to find such a true example of cuisine here in Sydney.


608-610 Liverpool Street, Strathfield 02 9763 2306


#10 Brighton the Corner

Sometimes a morning crumpet is the only thing that will do. This sunny corner café is where you need to do it. Located in the leafy backstreets behind the station, this sun-drenched spot is the perfect place for a mid-week breakfast.


Brighton St & The Avenue, Petersham



#11 Fratelli Fresh

For a fresh and authentic Italian dining experience, you really can’t go wrong with our friends at Fratelli Fresh. Feast on baked truffle eggs, Ricotta & Blueberry pancakes or a Prosciutto plate – this restaurant is an absolute favourite amongst the locals and it’s easy to see why.



81 Macleay Street, Potts Point



#12 Dr Faustus

If you’re in need of a Monday morning pick-me-up, a hangover cure or just a kick-start to your day, then this apothecary-style café is the place to be. Located in a former pharmacy, it runs on a ‘cure for what ails you’ theme.


280 Cleveland St, Surry Hills


#13 Little Jean

This locally-loved bistro is creative and inviting in its breakfast offering. You can enjoy anything from soft rolls filled with Pialligo bacon, eggs and chipolata relish, to in-house baked pastries and Single Origin coffee. The place is drenched in sunlight so it’s simply a marvellous place to start your day.


1/1 Kiaora Road, Double Bay



#14 Ruby’s Diner

Whatever your eating habits, you’ll be catered for in Ruby’s. They have a Paleo museli or a scrambled eggs with split pea curry (wow). Or, if you really want to indulge, a beef brisket bun with smokey BBQ sauce. Whatever they have, just writing this is making me hungry!!


1/173-179 Bronte Road, Waverley



#15 Little Shenkin

The name doesn’t disappoint as it’s a cosier venue, but this just adds to the experience. The focus is on Israeli street food and the shakshuka and hummus plates are not to be missed. Coupled with a Mecca coffee or pot of Ovvio it’s a breakfast you’ll want to try.


2a Belmore Rd, Randwick


#16 Zinc

Described as “The Grand Dame of Potts Point” by The Good Food Guide, this café consistently delivers great coffee, great food and great service.


2/77 Macleay Street, Potts Point
