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!

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!

Recommended by a mate of E’s, Blues Point Hotel has a cosy and charming bistro where it is great to visit, after a long week of work. I couldn’t get over how the lounge area looked! Now back to the bistro…
Their menu was interesting, in that they incorporated a variety of flavours. Offering salads, grilled items to your usually pub food, pastas burgers, curries and seafood. The service was extremely fast and the quality of the foods were comforting! I left quite full and I was digging the flavour of their curry. The pepper squid was to die for, the mayonnaise and lime that came with it, was a tasty blend.

I had visited during the busy lunch hour, found right across from a major company. You can either order your coffee and be off your way, or choose to casually dine amongst business suits.
The menu consists of modern, seasonal produce and serves from breakfast to lunch. I loved the interior, mostly consisted of browns against white and grey, I can imagine people having frequent meetings within. Enough about the interior, let’s talk about the food! Fresh, it deceivingly does not look filling but it sure was. I had particularly liked mine, which I believe was the Avenue Veggie Breakie Bowl.
Service was efficient and looked polished. The only downside is that the waiter got my coffee mistaken, but hey it still taste good!

Burgers, chicken, sushi, frozen custard and fries, this joint gives Sydney a nod towards bringing about contemporary food to Aus! Without losing the interest of Sydney-siders with their love of burgers, chef Chase Kojima brings his flavours of Japan. The burgers are twisted to accomodate rice and seaweed, instead of a bun.
The insides are just as flavoursome such as, not limited to, Angus beef, fresh vegetables, kingfish, katsu mushroom and topped with their ‘special sauce’. My experience was good, I loved their fries which was topped with Umami salt. I’m a slow eater, so I did find by the end my cheese burger was a tad soggy at the bottom. That did not deter the taste however, I have yet to taste their frozen custards mmm.

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!

If you are ever about in Sydney in the CBD, this café is a great spot to dine-in/take-away. It has a relaxing atmosphere with attentive wait-staffs. Extremely spacious within and outside, where they have those heated poles making it a perfect area to also enjoy the city scenery.
What I chose for that day was a French brioche I think which has a nice sweet after taste. But let me tell you, their piccolo was bomb! It had that right consistence of milk and espresso.
