Sydney: The 3 best cafés

The 3 best cafés in Sydney

Cafés are a lifestyle in Sydney. The city excels in hip and trendy places to go for the hot drink. But people don’t just come here for the coffee: food is taken just as seriously and the dishes that are served would make a Michelin-starred chef jealous. We asked food blogger Michael Shen from the successful I’m Still Hungry blog to show us the best cafés in Sydney. Just a warning: you’ll be hungry for more after you’re done reading!

Haven

No two coffees 
should be the same

Few who visit Sydney can disagree with the statement that our coffee is on par with the world’s best. But Haven stands above that with a unique proposition – coffee that’s tailored to your taste. Like your brew a bit sweeter, with nutty notes and with a fuller body? Done. Prefer a milkier, smoother complexion? Haven can do it for you. After all, no two coffee drinkers are the same, so it stands to reason that no two coffees should be the same.

The food is also on par with Sydney’s best – few cafes do scrambled eggs better, or a toasted sandwich, for that matter. But you know what they’re really famous for? Their macarons. Splurge on a dozen – you won’t regret it!

Devon on Danks

Café food with rarely seen twists

When it comes to serving up café food with a twist, Devon on Danks is what you need. With dishes such as taro scotch egg, miso grilled salmon, pandan chiffon cake and Thai milk tea soft serve, Devon on Danks is the place for those who want something beyond the usual poached eggs on toast. Bonus: the menu changes each season, so there’s always a good reason for me to come back!
