Awesome fluffy soft Ricotta Pancakes & scrambled eggs that taste like pudding✨🍮🥚 I would stay in Sydney for this! By the way the restaurant's interior design has the "Hygge" style, and some nice lifestyle magazines, I liked it very much.

We had a really nice lunch here. Despite being crowded, it wasn't overly noisy and the food arrived fairly quickly. I didn't try the famous ricotta pancakes but the salad I had was incredible. It was a very expensive salad (about $20), but very delicious....More

Given Bills premium price point, we arrived for breakfast expecting above average service, a modern Australian menu, and great coffee. Unfortunately, this was not to be. Even though the restaurant was not busy we waited too long for our warm weak coffees to arrive, our...More

Description
Bills Darlinghurst, this is where it all began, in 1992. The miniscule kitchen and tiny dining room in one of Darlo's old backstreet pub buildings, serving just a blackboard-menu breakfast and lunch, set the tone for bills still does today. Local by-laws allowed only a few seats - hence the now much-copied communal table where everyone eats together, reading the newspaper or striking up a conversation with the person enjoying scrambled eggs next to them. Today, it's still a simple Sydney corner cafe, serving a menu of bills classics.
