During our brief visit to Sydney we managed to visit a couple of our favourite cafes and try some new places too.
One of our favourite cafes in Sydney is Pablo’s Vice in Darlinghurst, and no trip is complete without a visit. We visited twice on this trip. Great coffee, friendly staff and good vibes. We love sitting outside but inside is just as chilled.
Speaking of places we visited twice, I think I may have just found my new favourite lunch place. Devon Cafe has two outlets but we visited the one in Surry Hills. There was a bit of a wait to get a seat, but they had a system that worked well, so it wasn’t so bad. I had the salmon with onsen egg and eel croquette. It was delicious. So much so, that I went back the next day and had the exact same thing. Steve had a crab omelette with crossiant on the first day and smoked salmon buckwheat blini on the next visit.
I love me some matcha. I would pretty much eat matcha flavoured anything. So I was excited to find this little place. It used to be called Chanoma Cafe (and their website still has it called that) but it’s changed to Oh!Matcha now. It’s just a small, casual place but they use real, good quality matcha in their drinks and desserts. They also have other things like Sesame flavoured drinks and more. Unfortunately because I wasn’t feeling my usual self, I wasn’t really up to have any of their desserts on this trip. So it was just Matcha lattes for me on my 2 visits. Steve had a a Sesame latte. They were oishii!!!!!
We walked past this shop numerous times over the weekend, and we finally had to give in a buy one. Who can resist Japanese cheesecake? We bought one of their standard cheesecakes to take back to Taryn & Mike’s to have as dessert after dinner. It was so light and fluffy and super delicious! I wish I had one now.
I’ve just remembered that we also visited this super cute cafe in Surry Hills/Darlinghurst on our last morning in Sydney. We had a delicious coffee there – but I don’t have any photos to share unfortunately. The cafe was very stylish and was Japanese-esque (There was some Studio Ghibli decorations around the cafe) but also kind of Scandinavian. Lovely little place. Will definitely return when I am next in town.
