Bake Bar Bakery
Breakfast at Bake Bar Bakery is not something to be scarfed down. The casual eatery has three Sydney locations: Randwick, Double Bay and Alexandria, with much to eye off on the menu. The ‘Bake Bar benedict’ and three different types of shakshuka (baked eggs) are emphatically eggy and just a few of the reasons this place is ranked on our list of Sydney’s best brekkie spots. If you’re trying to fit back into your skinny jeans, order the ‘lite brekkie’ option  of egg whites with sautéed greens, cherry tomatoes and hummus. All the baked goods, including breads, bagels and pastries, are made in-house and show fidelity to tradition.

Blackwood Pantry
The playful menu at Blackwood Pantry is conceived by Michelin-trained executive chef Robert Lechowicz and business partner Daniel Sorridimi. This bright, beachy Luchetti Krelle-designed restaurant, all dusky pinks and golden hues, is not just one of the best in Cronulla; it’s up there with the best in this brekkie-obsessed city. Queues of locals and tourists wait to squeeze in here for quirky dishes such as the blue dragon, splodged with bright colour, the Turkish poached eggs, dusted with chimichurri, or the fresh basil yoghurt.  New to the menu is the sweet potato and carrot fritters, yoghurt, bell peppers, avocado, watercress, zaatar with a charred capsicum and pepper chutney,

The Pantry Manly
The Pantry Manly is located on the promenade at Manly Beach and features a panoramic view of crashing waves. Competing with that view is the very gawp-able breakfast menu, which consists of classics such as buttermilk pancakes with candied walnuts, and the ‘pantry breakfast’ of two eggs, sourdough toast, bacon, Boston baked beans, roasted cherry tomatoes and baked potatoes with rosemary. For dishes with a beautiful twist, order the wild mushroom and gruyere tart with rocket, prosciutto, chargrilled asparagus and poached egg or the white polenta porridge with sultanas, candied walnuts, banana and red gum honey.

Harry's Bondi, Best places for brunch in Bondi,

Harry’s Bondi
This Bondi Beach favourite is dedicated to offering delicious healthy food options and the bronzed bods of Bondi are all over it. Executive chef Ivan Castaneda creates inventive yet nourishing dishes using fresh whole foods. Once a convenience store, then a small café, now a restaurant following its expansion a few years ago, Harry’s is a popular place to perch before or after walking along the promenade. The breakfast menu includes cacao hotcakes with mandarin and the divine coconut chia pudding with house-made granola and berries. Play spot the Bondi Hipsters ordering off a drinks menu that includes kombucha and golden lattes.

Kepos St Kitchen, Sydney's Best Breakfasts, Best restaurants in Australia, #restaurantaustralia

Kepos Street Kitchen, Redfern
Join the Kepos Street Kitchen cult for falafels for breakfast moments after they’ve been retrieved from a vat of bubbling oil. The dish is so popular that restaurateurs Michael Rantissi and wife Kristy Frawley named their first book Falafel for Breakfast. This version of the spiced mashed chickpea formed into a ball and deep-fried is one of the best we’ve ever had. We love the way the warm spice and crunch of the falafel fritters is offset by the crisp fresh vegetables, tahini and dukkah-flecked hummus. Rantissi and Frawley created the #spreadhummusnothate hashtag and believe this cherished street food belongs to everyone in the Middle East. 

Devon Cafe, Barangaroo, Streets of Barangaroo, Best Breakfasts in Sydney,

Devon Cafe, Barangaroo
Skip breakfast safe in the knowledge that you will be well fed at Devon Cafe, which is a boon for the Streets of Barangaroo, attracting everyone from inner urbanites to A-listers. The cafe is the place to go for a breakfast bowl of sautéed kale,  roasted cauliflower, wild rice and eggs blini. You can also indulge in playful dishes such as Dr Seuss (green eggs and ham) the Bubba Gump Omelette, or Breakfast with the Sakumas.

Blackstar Pastry, Rosebery
Who said you can’t have watermelon and strawberry cake for breakfast? If new owner Louis Li has anything to do with it, the cult dessert will be a breakfast staple. Li became CEO of the company started by chef Christopher The in September 2018. The CEO deserves sweet success after keeping the vegan chocolate popcorn cake, lemon myrtle chiffon cake and orange cake on the menu. Savoury tooths are also catered for with the lamb shank and red wine pie. Coffee by The Little Marionette seals the mid-morning meal deal.
