Coffee good, what we had (scrambled eggs for me, something more elaborate for the gf) was also tasty. Service very attentive. Really liked the place. So, apparently, do the... More

Believe it or not, you can find a truly excellent breakfast burrito in Sydney--of course, they just call it "Mexican Breakfast." This, with combined with some tea, made for the best breakfast I had while in Sydney.

Wish we found it earlier! I had the Moroccan plate and it was the most satisfying way to start the day. I can't wait to go back to Sydney - just for this dish! Staff was friendly, great coffee, can't ask for more really:)

We had breakfast at Toast everyday during our stay in Sydney. The food was delicious and the coffee was excellent. The staff were friendly and helpful as well. The poached eggs with chilli jam were delicious. I would highly recommend a visit to Toast.

Had breakfast there this Saturday morning with my girlfriend. Friendly staff and a nice atmosphere. We found a seat straight away (although we weren't served straight away due to it either being quite busy or a little understaffed) the service was very professional and we received our coffee and food within about 15 mins or so of ordering. Eggs Benny... More

This neighbourhood continues to distinguish itself as a shopping destination, offering the best collection of one-of-a-kind boutiques, designer brands and flagship stores in the city. Today, this area has evolved into a hub of media, design and professional services - a colourful and diverse place equally known for its antique dealers, art galleries, cafes and pubs. Strolling down the street on a Saturday morning, you’ll see a mix of students, artists, hipsters and a few all-nighters from Oxford Street, the “Gay Capital of Sydney”.
