Balmoral Beach is pretty as a picture when the sun is shining in Sydney and what better way to enjoy the view than at the sleek Public Dining Room, a more upmarket option for brunch than the always packed Boathouse.
Tucked away in the quiet suburb of Petersham is Brighton the Corner, a cafe suitably named so as it sits right on the corner of a block, next to a roundabout. It’s my first time visiting and it ticks all the boxes so far – plenty of free street parking, big and spacious and best of all, no lines.
Sydney bacon lovers – listen up and get ready for your socks to be knocked off by the first ever Bacon Festival in town! The masterminds behind this celebration of bacon are the passionate duo behind funky Newtown cafe Cuckoo Callay (Ella and Ibby), who are collaborating with the Black Forest Smokehouse at Marrickville to showcase their free range Australian bacon goodies in 8 delicious dishes on Cuckoo Callay’s special bacon menu for 12 weeks, starting from February 9th. That’s right – you’ll have 3 months to get down to Cuckoo Callay to pig out on their quirky bacon themed creations.
Nestled into one of the many side streets of Surry Hills near Museum is a quiet achiever by the name of Joe Black. Step inside and you’ll find trendy wall art (think giant moustaches, an ape evolution mural and a modified “Cityrail” map), which is the perfect setting to indulge in some bang on trend dishes like the Slow Cooked Pork Belly Roll and Caramel Cronut we had.
