We may have just entered our last chilly month for the year, but that doesn’t mean we’re ready to stop our cozy leisure time. Eating a hearty meal and sipping a hot brew is still the best way to catch up with mates or fill in the breaks between uni classes. And boy oh boy, Sydney just keeps producing fab new spots to find all of the smashed avo, brunch treats and flat whites.
And they’re guaranteed to leave you feeling warm and fuzzy inside.
#1 A1 Canteen
If you’re looking for a busy contemporary atmosphere with plenty of healthy food on the menu, this is the place for you. Located in Chippendale, A1 Canteen serves salad dishes and sandwiches, with flavour combinations ranging from a salad of lamb shoulder and tahini yoghurt, to a leg ham and curry vinaigrette sandwich. It has the fine dining feel without the fine dining price tag. Definitely a win-win.
#2 Roller’s Bakehouse
A Friday favourite: the HAM N’ 🧀 available today until sold out. #rollersbakehouse • • • • #sydney #manly #northernbeaches #bakery #bakehouse #rollers #pastry #coffee #comingsoon #rollingsoon #design #branding #millenialpink #croissant #rollersbakehouse #instagram #freshprince #croissant #lamination #sydneycafes #sydneyfood #sydneycoffeeu
Calling all pastry-loving Sydney-siders, your haven is here. Manly’s newest addition, Rollers Bakehouse, specialises in baking croissants with an extensive list of flavour combinations. They’ve got savoury flavours of beetroot and goat’s cheese, and sweet options like banana, cinnamon and caramel. There’s even a garlic bread croissant, and a sushi-roll option. It seems too good to be true. But they really have delivered it all, I promise.
#3 Ona Coffee
Ona have been on the scene for a while, but they’ve now made their way to Sydney, yay! The chain specialises in creating their own coffee blends which you can try in-store. There are infusions such the sweet ‘Raspberry Candy’ or ‘The Founder’; inspired by rich black forest cake chocolate. You can also fill up on their menu, whether you’re feeling some avocado dishes or even citrus kingfish. Go for the taste, stay for the aroma.
#4 Boronia Kitchen
Whether you’re flying solo, with a mate, or with the whole family, Boronia Kitchen of Hunter’s Hill has got you covered. Salad meals, pasta, baked goods, meat and veg, there’s nothing the team haven’t thought of. Their meals are filled with fresh Australian produce and their wine list is endless. Who doesn’t want to pair their meal with a cheeky beverage? I can guarantee you won’t be stopping at one course.

Just outside of the Sydney CBD comes a new chess-inspired café with a simple, wholesome menu to boot. Travel to Dulwich Hill to learn all about masters of chess, which the menu items are named after. There are plenty of vegan options and even a gluten free porridge (we all know that porridge always does the trick in slightly brisker conditions). Coffee, tea and smoothies are also on offer to partner with the tasty dishes. You won’t find one friend who you can’t bring along, Queenside have everyone covered.
Are you a coffee aficionado who also needs some cash to afford all that avo?
