We go to Gnome most weekends. It's been one of the best finds we've found in Sydney. They take great care with their coffee, always great service and have very affordable, delicious food options!! Definitely worth a breakfast visit!

Consistent, great coffee. Friendly staff and tasty all day brunch menu! Also $3 for a long black is a bargain.

The Gnome is a great little spot, food was spot on... I ate there twice and would definitely recommend ! Good service and a changing specials board make it interesting for locals and regular business types

Small place, charming. Non expensive. They serve breakfast all day and have also salads. Ideal if you want to have some coffee or enjoy an everyday lunch
