It’s not just the ladies on Sex and The City that made long lunches and weekend brunches popular, every city around the world specialises in this joyous meal. Whether you do it with your girlfriends, your parents, partner or even by yourself, these are the top places in Sydney you need to brunch at:
Trio, Bondi – One popular amongst the locals, this restaurant knows your way to the heart. Be it with a haloumi degustation or a freshly-made granola with fresh berries. The tables overlook the blue water of Bondi beach, making life seem a little bit sweeter than the icing sugar-dusted banana bread on your plate.
Balmoral Boatshed – This place is packed with fresh flowers, baskets of bright fresh fruits, yellow furniture and big groups of families. If you’re heading to the Northern Beaches, then Balmoral Boatshed is your calling, especially when it has an L-shaped outdoor deck area where you can watch the kids play with the seagulls while you sip on your mojito! Win-win.
Poolside Cafe – Don’t be surprised if you share your Sunday brunch with your girlfriends plus the entire Australian rugby team. This restaurant is located adjacent to Sydney Botanical Garden (great to go for a stroll post-brunch) and above Sydney’s oldest outdoor pools, Andrew (Boy) Charlton Pool. P.S. you may see eye candies swimming in the pool while you sip on that coffee, just warning you.
About Life, Rozelle – One for the solo bruncher, this organic food store café is a contender of Wholefoods in the U.S. Its menu is a mixture of superfood supergreen smoothies, quinoa salads, buckwheat pancakes, gluten-free quiches and a whole lot of other pretentious meals. Love the Miranda Kerr lifestyle? This is your destination… FYI, its sister chain is located in Bondi.
