It’s a dream for breakfast and brunch lovers, and I was in absolute heaven here. I felt like my time in town wasn’t enough to try all the best breakfast places in Sydney!

Chia and açai bowls, healthy smoothies, avocado toasts, omelets, pancakes – everywhere, breakfast food is delicious and a visual feast. Even morning food is camera-ready on Instagram. You’ll find lots of great spots everywhere in town, but iconic cultural area Surry Hills is where you’ll find many of the loveliest cafés.

Cute and romantic, Cuppa Flower has maybe the most adorable concept on this list: it’s a flower shop! A botanic dream, this sweet has flowers and colours everywhere, a concept they’ve expanded to the lovely dishes. One of the most Instagrammable cafes in Sydney, the food is really good, and I particularly loved the pancakes. The açai bowl was a little watery for my taste, but there’s also a super cute Totoro cake. An unmissable gem with great service!

Its simple yet great proposal is what puts The Devon Café on my list of the best breakfast places in Sydney. Good food, good vibes and an eclectic menu with healthy and meatier options. They have three locations in town. The Surry Hill venue is small yet cosy with a lovely atmosphere, while the Northern Sydney one also has dining, following the same concept. There’s a distinctly Scandinavian flair here, with its lush look and lots of wooden details!

Right on the Kirribilli Commuter Terminal Wharf, Celsius Coffee Co. is a rustic little gem. Rough and raw, there’s an effort in keeping up with the old harbour feel and it really shows. Steel and wood are the main protagonists here, and even the food is pretty!

One of the best breakfast places in Sydney, the food here is really delicious and varied.

From the same people behind Celsius, Café Monstera is another beauty near the ocean. Located in Mosman Bay Wharf, it’s a hip and trendy little spot with a varied menu, including delicious waffles and burgers.

The design is simple yet balanced, clearly Scandinavian-inspired, with a bright soul that puts it among the most Instagrammable cafes in Sydney. 

It’s a little outside the city centre but in a cute area – you can make an excursion by taking the ferry there!

Last but not least we have Bondi Beach! Of course a must visit when in Sydney. There are many cute cafés here but my favorite is the local surfer place The Speedos Café!

Pancake Art – Taking pancakes to the next level or what do you thing?

For sure a must on the list of most instagrammable cafés in Sydney – they even have this slogan themselves. What makes this a must visit spot is the food. Their smoothies, bowls and caramelised banana + chia VEGAN pancakes where so delicious and looked truly picture perfect. The design is a bit worn down and rustique but the view over Bondi is great and so is the chill surfer vibe. For sure one of the best breakfast places in Sydney!
