Outdoor seating available. The owner is very friendly. Vegan items are listed on the regular menu, but there is a vegan menu to make it easier. ask for it. The vegan stack is amazing and should be on the top of your list. The patty and beans are fantastic. So savory. My girlfriend loved her poached eggs and toast. She... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Surry Hills

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”. In this vibrant neighbourhood you will find bohemian chic and modern style co-existing side by side.
