The Big Brekky
In my book, there’s no ritual more enjoyable than a delicious Sunday breakfast that stretches from mid morning until afternoon.
And of course there’s no better breakfast than one that’s cooked by someone else.
Along with notorious bars and restaurants, Sydney has an impressive smattering of Sunday breakfast hot spots that you need to add to your “to do” list.
Breakfast by the Beach
The eastern suburbs (while sometimes overrated) offer breakfasts which can convince even the hardest partiers to get out of bed before midday on a Sunday.
Indigo in Double Bay offers a fusion of flavours, with modern Australian cuisine. While there’s sometimes a short wait for seats, you do get to dine on the median strip!
If you’re after a beach view to brighten your breakfast, try out Bondi Trattoria, who offer authentic Italian dining and scrumptious breakfast options.
If you’re in the Rose Bay area or just looking for a caffeine hit to remember, visit Espresso on Dover for a coffee and a traditional breakfast or an edgy Aussie take on the first meal of the day.
Inner West Foodfest
The Inner West is best known for having the best of things – the best live music, the best boutique shops and of course, the best cafes.
While it may be on the borders of the inner west, Dues Café is definitely an inner westie at heart.
Enjoy a deliciously wholesome and fulfilling breakfast amidst the sights and sound of Sydney’s best motorbike retailer.
Glebe offers a host of cafes perfect for a relaxed Sunday morning, with the petite La Banette Patisserie baking indulgent and absolutely irresistible treats to get your morning started.
Newtown, being the dining giant it is, has too many good places to name – I like to try a different café every week and I’m very rarely disappointed.
Sunday Morning in the City
While you may not find as many charming, laid back cafes offering Sunday breakfast in the heart of the city, they do indeed exist.
In the heart of The Strand, Elixir Espresso produces mouth watering coffee to accompany a light, but satisfying brunch (which can precede a leisurely afternoon of shopping).
The Guylian Belgian Chocolate Cafe in The Rocks is one for those who are after a sweet Sunday morning breakfast – you might not be able to move afterwards, but it will be well worth it.
