Looking for the best brunch in Sydney? I get asked over and over again why I love Australia so much and why I keep on going back. Other than the incredible beaches, my friends and family, the amazing cities and the nature, i LOVE the food and I truly believe Australia is the best place for a good brunch!
Speedos Cafe, North Bondi
When I put out an Instagram story asking for recommendations on things to do in Sydney, Speedos Cafe in North Bondi was by far the most recommended place to eat. Speedos claims to serve up the most Instagrammable food in Sydney and they could be right… they serve (very colourful) raw meals, organic herbal teas, as well as some of the tastiest vegan, gluten and dairy-free options in town in the city.
Breakfast is served from 6.30am till 11.30am every day, with a 10% surcharge applied on the weekends and public holidays.
I personally would recommend the brioche, dulche de leche and candied bacon, served alongside smashed raspberry, fairy floss, fresh berries, pistachio and drizzled with maple sauce.
Quick Brown Fox Eatery, Pyrmont
Did someone say bottomless brunch? I found it surprisingly difficult to find good bottomless brunches in Sydney that were available during the week but Quick brown Fox Eatery sure filled that gap. Their bottomless brunch is available everyday from 8am until 1:30pm for 90 minute sessions and costs just $30 AUD (£17 as of March 2022).
The all day menu has some seriously delicious brunch options including Banoffee Pie Waffles with mascarpone, banana, caramel, chocolate ganache, biscuit macadamia crumbs and golden syrup ice cream. If you are looking for something a little more simple you can enjoy the classics such as smashed avocado on toast or overnight oats with roasted pear, hazelnut, coyo, maple syrup, and seasonal berries.
Circa Espresso, Parramatta
One of Parramatta’s most popular cafes, Circa Espresso is a little further out of Sydney city but definitely worth a visit if you are staying out west. The cafe serves all kinds of speciality coffees as well as a seasonal menu with Middle Eastern inspired flavours.
Ottoman eggs are a staple on the menu, these poached free range eggs are served with crumbed eggplant, garlic labneh, burnt chilli & sage butter and fried leeks and house-made focaccia. My favourite? The butter brioche french toast with passion fruit curd, fruits of the season, glazed meringue and rose pistachio crumble! Breakfast is available all day (phew), it’s pet friendly and no reservations are needed.
Wildpear Café, Dural
With 15 years of continuously running service, it’s no wonder Wildpear Café in Dural has really hit the mark with their brunch. Located in the far northern suburbs of Sydney, it’s well worth making the journey for their all-day brunch (service starts at 8am).
Wildpear is nestled within a picturesque nursery on the outskirts of Sydney. There are plenty of savoury options on the menu including Sweet Pea Falafel, Smashed Avo on Toast, and simple options like Mushrooms on Toast. However, the real standout are some of their sweet breakfast dishes such as the Sweet Pancakes, French Toast and Buttermilk Scones.
Wild Child Eatery, Bankstown
Taro Infused Pancakes, Granola Bowls, Cheese and Chilli Eggs, and Brekky Burgers are just a handful of brunch goodies available at the Wild Child Eatery in south-west Sydney. The cafe is open from 6:30am on weekdays and 7am on weekends, to 14:30 in the afternoon, you can also get your favourite dishes from Uber Eats if you aren’t wanting to get out of bed on a Sunday morning.
There are a ton of drinks available to accompany your meal, whether you are craving a cold-pressed juice, chai latte, or a Belgian hot chocolate, there will be something that ticks all your boxes.
Cheatday Sydney, Peakhurst
With a very naught all-day breakfast/lunch menu, Cheatday in Sydney is more about treating yourself than actually cheating yourself. If you like toasties, you are in for a good day, there is no less than 9 different toastie options on the menu including three cheese grilled chorizo, and even a three cheese with ham and pineapple!
The breakfast menu includes their Signature Scrambled Eggs, Chicken Waffles, and even a Haloumi Burger. I would definitely recommend this one to those who love a savoury brunch!
Tempo Cafe, Terrey Hills
Hot Chocolate, Stick Chai Latte, Berry Passion Smoothie, or more teas than you can shake a stick at, it’s not just delicious breakfast drinks on the menu at Tempo Cafe.
Tempo Cafe serves a delicious all day breakfast that is a firm favourite in the Terrey Hills community. Options include bacon & Egg Rolls, poached Stonefruit and Pomegranate Bircher, Buckwheat Pancakes and a build your own breakfast too!
With 3 locations across Sydney (Rooty Hill, Hurstville and Parramatta), Urban Jungle comes highly rated and is well known as being one of Sydney’s best brunch spots. Urban Jungle was designed especially for brunch and brings to life an indoor jungle oasis with nature themed wallpapers, water features, live plants and flora and a mini jungle for kids.
On the menu are Belgian Croffles, French Toast with cinnamon, caramelised banana, a Belgian chocolate pot, walnut crumb and honeycomb, topped with vanilla and orange mascarpone ice cream, raspberry sorbet and seasonal fruits.
