Of course Sydney is absolutely teeming with great cafes and it’s hard to pick out one above others but Black Pony in Coogee is pretty sensational. Great coffee needless to say but also wonderful breakfasts. The vibe’s the perfect Sydney easy-going cool. 1 minute’s walk to the beach too.

Eateries We Love - El Loco in Surry Hills, Sydney

Murray Bevan | April 13th, 2012

If you’re like me and you’ve got a weak spot for good Mexican food, El Loco in Surry Hills is the place to go.
On the corner of two bustling inner-city streets, this place gets so full that they have security guards on the footpath who’s sole job it is to ensure the [...]

Louis Vuitton Maison in Sydney

Marion Hume | December 6th, 2011

Tie me kangaroo down sport! What’s that in the window of the world’s newest Louis Vuitton on Sydney’s George Street?
Streuth! It’s a great big kangaroo. And in the other huge picture window there’s a big old Aussie crocodile.

There’s a lot to love about Dive. It’s an intimate, boutique hotel, well put together and with a perfect location just across the road from one of the best city beaches you’ll find anywhere in the world. If you’ve chosen to be this close to the water it’s a shame [...]

Bills in Sydney’s Darlinghurst is a Sydney favourite. In a city with more great cafes than any other I’ve been to, some of the best food and certainly the best coffee, it’s not so easy to stand out but Bills does. Opened in 1993, and now with several other branches dotted [...]

The Book Kitchen was just one of a long list of recommendations I was given recently when I traveled to Sydney for Australian Fashion Week, and it turned out to be a real gem.

Eateries We Love - The Bourke Street Bakery

Murray Bevan | May 22nd, 2010

Across the road from The Book Kitchen sits The Bourke Street Bakery. Nestled in the ground floor of a corner site, the service area is only about 4sq metres, and glass cabinets bursting with freshly-baked treats seem to surround you.

Top picks are the strawberry & vanilla creme brulee tarts, the iced coffee, an array [...]
