I have been visiting Cafe Giulia since my days as a freshy at USYD. That will make it 10 years this year. Recently, I have visited less and less. Why is that? Because Giulia seems to be resting on her laurels. I still support local, but either the bar has been raised or Giulia has slipped. When I read 'best... More

They do great breakfast here, really well priced as well. Unfortunately the coffee here is pretty crappy, and I've come here a couple times hoping that it would improve but ... No luck. It's just bad 😳 But a great place to have breakfast if you are one of those types who "doesn't drink coffee" ..

We came in shortly after their closing time. Nevertheless they were extremely nice and served us two espressos. The best we ever tried outside of Italy (and surely better than many Italian bars). The place is pleasant and cosy. No idea about the food, since we just had a coffee.

This place is the king of cafes in Sydney's cafe culture. The owner (Steph) is a great guy - and mans the kitchen himself cooking up a storm. The food is absolutely delicious and tastes like home. Try the special (corn fritters w poached eggs and hollandaise) and you will be amazed at how fresh ingredients make food to live... More

I am at a loss as to why people rave about this cage, it's noisy it's slow and the food comes out cold. I have been a few times with friends and I have found the experience completely underwhelming. We have opted to go across the road to Bar Mattino for brunch and found it much better. I suggest you... More

Extensive menu, and a relaxed, comfortable feel make this a good spot for brekkie if you're passing by. Coffee is good and the service friendly. Food is generous and reliable. Burgers are recommended.
