It’s the centre of Sydney, but it’s also a gastronomic centre in it’s own right. It’s Parramatta, and we’ve uncovered some absolute jewels in the crown for you to sample.
If you’re after breakfast, lunch or maybe brunch, head to Circa Espresso. The café started as a hole in the wall ten years ago and quickly established itself as the centre of Parramatta coffee culture.
Slow drip, cold brew, single origin – they do it all. And the Middle Eastern-inspired food is a perfect match.
The Ottoman eggs is justifiable an institution and the baked eggs are just as good, both served with sourdough focaccia made in-house. If you’ve got a sweet tooth, the sourdough pancakes are divine. And for a light lunch, the chicken salad or the Panzanella salad cannot be beaten.
Then when the clock ticks round to cocktail hour, head to Nick and Nora’s at the top of the Skye Tower hotel. Decked out in the style of a 1903s New York speakeasy, this is just the place to sip a cocktail, devour a few canapes and watch the sunset.
The food and the drinks ae redesigned to go together – so try a melon trap with the crispy prawns, a café noir with the smoky lamb croquettes or the vodka martini with the brilliant baller board.
From the dawn to the cocktail hour and beyond – Parramatta has it all going on.
