An Indonesian fusion cafe, operates 6 days a week with long hours (7:00 – 19:30). The quickest way to get there, is to jump off Town Hall and  it should only take 10 minutes to get there!

The interior is instagram worthy, with tasty pinks and cream and make sure to check out the quote on their wall. It is a cosy spot, so make sure to get in there early or out of rush hours. Unfortunately when I visited, their air-conditioning was not running so had to brunch in the humidity. This however did not lessen my excitement for their dishes! What makes them unique is their fusion of Indonesian and Western food. Try their Superbowls, which has one layer of tasty Mi Goreng and another layer of pork belly, sausages, herbed corn, melted cheese and corned beef. The cravings are real! There are other items that will certainly entice you for a second or third visit.

Service was lovely and quick! Make sure to take a snap or two, as their interior and food presentation calls out for a snap or two. I have a feeling I’ll be back.

Visited during a bright lit day, it was a refreshing start. With plentiful street parking, Mr. Cafe is located comfortably in a quiet suburb, with ample open indoor and outdoor seating. The staff are friendly, prompt and I can say the same thing when the food came out. Coffee was strong but beautifully roasted.

I got what I heard was popular from their menu, which was the ricotta filled cinnamon doughnuts. It was tastefully topped with honey, ginger and peach crumbs and half a peach on the side. The dough was sugary and soft and with the fillings, it gave another hit of sweetness. Ordered another plate of sandwich, separating chicken, avocado and eggs. I definitely would come back!

Set inside a warehouse interior, this refreshing cafe was a sure welcome to kick start the day ahead. The minimalistic space is so wide, that you can stretch your legs comfortable and take your time enjoying the food.

A health conscious ‘all day’ menu, with a cheeky cocktails menu which I didn’t get to try, its kitchen runs from 7am to 3pm. I ordered a regular almond milk latte, it was beautifully roasted as well as the vegan bowl. The creamy blend of roasted pumpkin, pumpkin hummus, shredded kale and the crunch of the roasted hazelnut was superb. The prices are what you expect to find in Sydney cafes, and the quality that was served made it Got seated quickly, meals got delivered quickly and got the day started off in the right direction!

From it’s modern interior and incorporating bits of the ‘jungle’ within the cafe, splashes of green within the sleek, industrial furniture, you will feel part of the busy bustle of Sydney! At the same time finding a comfortable sanctuary within the cafe.

Its menu emphasises the importance of not only serving amazing coffee, that Sydney is known for, but also highlighting local plant-based ingredients and “ethically-sourced meats”. I got my avocado on toast and the avocado paste was amazing! The consistency was thick, sweet and it was not over-powering. Also the vibrancy in their dishes was captivating, don’t you want to eat food that not only tastes good but also appealing?

It is a new cafe that landed in the hip part of Sydney, check it out!

Did not know we have another close cafe, though still about 20 minutes, beats driving to the city any day.  Upon entering, I did not realise how large the inside was! It had this canteen, beach, european type of vibe.

The big, open windows allowing the sunlight to flow in, was gorgeous and we hit jackpot with perfect weather. Abattoir Blues had a selection from burgers, pies, salads, chicken, fries and so fourth. I highly recommend their cheeseburger, this dreaming about it till this day. Oh and their fries!

Cafes like this makes me wish I had a quaint, relaxed cafe. A place where a bunch of mates or solo adventurers would sit down, wind down and eat some good old lunch

Stepping inside with its high windows and small floor plan, it brought the whole eating experience to a pleasurable minimal. We chowed down our freshly-made meals, I opted for a classic avocado, spinach, tomato sandwich and he a large breakfast plate.

You can never go wrong with a classic cafe, one that welcomes an abundance of sun and refreshing green juice.

Three Beans Cafe

Old Castle Hill Rd, Castle Hill NSW 2154

After or before a day of errands, I like to walk my way inside a cafe that has fresh ingredients and nutritional juices. Three Beans Cafe has numerous operations across Sydney and we visited the one at Castle Towers. Not too bright, calm and hints of cheerful tones of colour, I could not give this one a miss.

I plopped my way to a large recycled timber table, went through their mouth-watering organic menu and waited. Service is efficient and friendly, though I sometimes do not appreciate when my drink order is not given correctly. That was all forgotten when our preservative free meals came out!

E devoured his Cuban Beef Sandwich $12.50 whilst I took my time eating the Poached Egg & Salmon $13 brunch!
