Two weeks ago Mac and I had the most amazing weekend in Sydney. We went up to visit beautiful friends, beautiful food and nothing but fresh air. We explored the Blue Mountains for the first time which was so amazing and although today I"m giving you my favourite cafes, The Blue Mountains is pure soul food.
This list is a combination of my favourite foodie places over a few visits to Sydney (in no particular order.) Be sure to check as many as you can out if you are living in Sydney or traveling.
The Grounds of Alexandria: Alexandria
I honestly don't even know how to explain this place. It is a foodies heaven and maybe an adults playground. The Grounds of Alexandria has a cafe, restaurant & bar, garden, bakery & patisserie, coffee roastery, animal farm, florist, markets and so much more. Leave a few hours free when you visit this place, you'll need it.
Bondi Wholefoods: Bondi Beach
Clean nutritious foods is what Bondi Wholefoods is all about and all I can say is pancakes, pancakes, pancakes. Seriously the pancakes are a must have here. Don't count on my word though, go try them yourself.
Three Blue Ducks: Bronte
"WE HAVE A SHARED PASSION FOR ETHICAL AND AUTHENTIC FOOD, PREPARED WITH LOVE" if that is not an inviting mission statement I don't know what is. Three Blue Ducks in Bronte is such an funky amazing place and is open for breakfast, lunch, dinner and cocktails. I had the fish of the day and it was stunning.
Nutrition Station: Several Locations
Nutrition station is exactly how it sounds. It is a station stop full of nutritious options. When I used to work in Sydney this was a go to stop for me, for a quick lunch or a take away meal to take on the plane. But don't get me wrong, you can still sit and enjoy an amazing meal.
Concrete Jungle Cafe: Chippendale
This place is an oasis. Concrete Jungle cafe uses fresh and local produce. There is a plant based menu and when meat is involved you can be sure that it is ethically sourced. Try the Blue Majik Smoothie Bowl or the Nourish Bowl.
Plane Tree: Woollahra
This cafe is located on a beautiful street in woollahra. Sit outside and enjoy the sunshine or surround yourself by trees and hanging plants inside. The Pesto Chicken Salad was my favourite. Mac enjoyed the chicken sandwich on freshly made sourdough bread.
Love Juice: Manly
This is the best cafe to visit when Sydney has turned on the weather with a beautiful sunny day. Love Juice is known for there açai bowls, cold pressed juices, raw salads and coffee. Try the salted caramel bowl and a takeaway organic coffee.
Vida Surf and Cafe: Bondi
After the Bronte to Bondi coastal walk we stopped in here for a delicious feed. I had the breakfast bowl with a side of bacon, because bacon is life. The boys had the omelette which gave me food envy and had me running back for seconds #nojoke.
Poolside Cafe: The Domain
I have been here several times for breakfast, lunch or a cheeky cocktail. It is perfect for a sunny Sydneys day, sitting outside watching the keen swimmers cutting laps below. Plus the food is amazing, I can't remember what I have had every time but on my last visit I had the breakfast bowl and it was delicious.
I hope you guys enjoy these places and the beautiful nourishing food on offer as much as I do. Any other cafes or restaurants you can suggest mention below for my next visit.
