Ripples Cafes are dotted around Sydney in locations boasting magnificent water views. You’ll find them at Sydney Wharf, Chowder Bay, Milsons Point and Whale Beach.
But, unlike most water view restaurants, the Ripples Cafes are reasonably priced and even better, they offer BYO (Note: they are also fully licensed).
Each café offers a Modern Australian menu, using quality seasonal produce and produces innovative and fresh food.
Not one to play favourites, we have to admit we love the Milsons Point café for lunch. It’s situated next to Luna Park, virtually right underneath the Sydney Harbour Bridge! Such a great spot to bring guests to show off our beautiful city. Plus, we never arrive without being armed with a good bottle of champas. But, that’s just us.
The cafes have a relaxed feel and offer friendly service. This is quintessential Sydney dining, without the price tag.
Also good to keep in mind, the cafes are great for group bookings and functions, plus they host a range of special events throughout the year.
