Sydney’s best breakfasts

With breakfast considered one of the most important meals of the day, it’s a good idea to start as you mean to go on. So, make a healthy choice, which will fuel your body for the day ahead.

In Sydney weekend breakfast is somewhat of a religion, with a plethora of flexible dining options. From green smoothies to gluten-free pancakes, Sydney’s wholefood breakfasts are a nutritious way to start your day. Here are some of the city’s finest options when it comes to having a healthy breakfast:

  • Kitchen by Mike, Rosebury

A carefree, warehouse-style café featuring home-style cooking with a focus on sustainability. With no formal menu, the emphasis is on utilising produce that is in season. The food is served canteen-style with a take-away counter to accommodate busy diners and those after a quick coffee hit.  

  • Henley’s Wholefoods, Bondi Junction

Delighting health junkies and fitness fanatics citywide, one of the most popular breakfasts is the nourishing maca hotcakes, created with almond meal and finished with caramalised banana, shredded nuts and coconut yoghurt.

  • Bread & Circus Wholefoods Canteen, Alexandria

A foodie precinct which leaves café goers feeling nurtured, well-fed and recharged. The menu changes daily, but keep an eye out for the cloud of eggs floating in baked ricotta, the morning jumble of bircher and granola or breakfast with Gwyneth.

  • O-organics, Surry Hills

Using all organic products and offering a number of vegan options, this place is a hit if you are a late riser as it’s equally excellent for lunch. For the egg fan, the one-egg omelet with herbs, chutney and crumbled goats cheese is a definite winner.

  • The Grounds of Alexandria

If you’re gluten-free consider yourself covered with the wide range of breakfast options, including tasty smashed avocado, available at The Grounds. This heritage-listed warehouse space now boasts an organic garden with the produce then used in the kitchen, keeping food miles to an all-time low.

  • KeenWah at Bondi Farmers’ Market

Having recently opened a stall at the Bondi Farmers’ Market, tasty offerings such as quinoa-based granola cups, cacao brownies, and ‘Power’ porridge with toppings, including fig and almond or rhubarb and yoghurt, are served up.

  • Clipper Café, Glebe

Known for serving rich food using locally-sourced ingredients. The must-try breakfast options include the Arabian Style Bircher Muesli, with pistachios, poached fruit and yoghurt and the Baked Eggs, served with spinach, feta, chorizo and herb toast.
