With multiple locations scattered on beaches around Sydney, you’re guaranteed to have a scenic meal at any one of The Boathouse Group’s gorgeous locations. We recommend the original, at Sydney’s stunning Balmoral Beach.
This farm-to-fork restaurant in Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs is nothing short of spectacular. Luxurious, feminine interior design accents give the room a super-elegant feel, perfect for special occasion brunches or ‘treat yourself’ moments.
A prime lunch and dinner spot thanks to its rooftop vistas, The Butler offers a shareable menu designed to be enjoyed amid the restaurant’s mint and peach-toned decor. And if the Sydney views don’t impress you, the very cool wallpaper will.
With baby pink interiors like its name suggests, plus multicoloured beverage options and the prettiest pastel plates, this Waterloo hot spot is like one big photo opp. Serving up brunch seven days of the week, it’s the ideal place to sit back, relax and indulge in a red velvet latte (yes, that’s a thing).
This cafe-meets-garden is the definition of ‘urban oasis’ with its white wicker detailing, abundance of plants and pretty floral window seats. Despite both spots being located inside shopping centres, the decor transports you elsewhere and provides for the perfect mid-shopping coffee break.
A bona-fide Sydney institution, Bills is known just as much for its chic decor as it is its famous hotcakes. Check out any one of its three Sydney locations for the kind of interiors inspo you usually get in a magazine.
Enjoy your breakfast among fresh flowers and cosy homewares at this restored furniture shop-turned-florist-turned-cafe. The vibe is relaxed, comfortable and exceedingly well-decorated, leaving you feeling like your brunching at the home of a good friend with excellent taste in decor.
A teal coffee machine, rustic, sun-kissed outdoor benches and, of course, the effortlessly chic residents of Bondi Beach all contribute to this beachy neighbourhood go-to’s photogenic appeal. Stick around long enough and your breakfast can turn into a boozy brunch, courtesy of Porch & Parlour’s all-day cocktail menu.
Opened in 2013, this Scandi cafe is a minimalist’s dream with its clean white, yellow and blue interior and aesthetically pleasing lolly counter. They even draw adorable Dala horses in their coffee foam!
If you’re headed south, make sure to stop past Zimzala. While the menu’s quality ingredients and innovative dishes are a huge attraction, it’s the view (literally situated a metre from the beach) that is the true highlight.
