Devon Cafe, Surry Hills

Devon Cafe only opened last year but they’re already a huge hit, constantly drawing in long lines during peak weekend lunch times. I’ve been there twice already for lunch and the food is pretty good, but they’ve since realised they can capitalise on their popularity and have expanded into dinner (Thurs-Sat only).

Kepos Street Kitchen, Redfern

Tucked away at the back end of Redfern and just one block away from Danks Street lies Kepos Street Kitchen, a small but super busy restaurant open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. We rock up hoping for a Sunday lunch at 1pm but there’s a massive queue and we’re not seated until 2pm – crazy!

On top of this, each dish is presented immaculately like a piece of artwork and looks almost too good to eat (emphasis on ‘almost’). Today we’re dining from the lunch menu which is a shortened version of the dinner menu. It’s not particularly busy on this Saturday lunch session but on nights of concerts and sporting events, they tend to book out so it’s best to plan ahead.

The Paramount Coffee Project, Surry Hills

For all coffee lovers out there, Seven Seeds from Melbourne and Reuben Hills (representing Sydney) have teamed up to present the Paramount Coffee Project. A place where every espresso, filter and drip of coffee is brought to life as art. The artsy vibe is reflected in the minimalistic, industrial warehouse chic fit out of the place – think lots of grey concrete and light beechwood furniture.

Waitan, Haymarket

I’ve been to a fair few Chinese restaurants in my time…but hardly any which are as modern and luxe as Waitan, which is up an escalator on Sussex Street and a world away from the bustle of Chinatown.
