Top 10 Breakfasts in Sydney

Sydney breakfasts

Who doesn’t love a long, leisurely breakfast?!   The sweet aroma of coffee, gooey eggs and maybe a dash of Champagne if we’re lucky.  Ah yes.  Whether it be for a long overdue catch up with your bestie, to nurse a hangover, or just because it’s Sunday and the sun is shining, Sydney has breakfast down pat.

Check out some of our favourite breakfast spots, in no particular order.

  1. THREE BLUE DUCKS
    Just a stroll up the hill from Bronte Beach, this cute cafe serves up some good breakfast tucker and coffee to boot.  There are no bookings, and there can be a wait for a table on weekends.  But, it’s worth it.

    141-143 Macpherson Street, Bronte
  2. FRATELLI PARADISO
    We love this place.  Italian waiters sing the menu to you with their lush Italian accents.  Admittedly, we usually have no idea what they are saying, but we sit there and listen intently and begin to imagine we’re sitting in a cafe in Rome.  This is not the place for your standard ‘big breakfast’.  But, if you’re a ‘foodie’, you’ll be more than happy with your choices.

    12-16 Challis Avenue, Potts Point  
  3. YELLOW
    Part of the Bentley empire, Yellow serves up top notch dishes in relaxed, smart and casual surroundings.  This one’s for the ‘foodies’.  A real winner.
