Cafe Society

Some of Sydney's best cafe's are destinations in their own right; here are four of the best...

The Bourke Street Bakery - Surry Hills

Who: indie kids and cool creatives ride there on vintage bicycles, stuffing themselves into this small corner shop that has queues regularly weaving out the door and around the corner.

Eat: in the land of baked goods, The Bourke Street Bakery is king of artisan breads, delicious pastries and gourmet goods that keep the Surry Hills regulars coming back time and again. My favourite is the rhubarb and almond tart ($3.80).

The Bourke St Bakery, corner Bourke and Devonshire Street, Surry Hills (02 9699 1011)

Bills - Darlinghurst

Who: a rendezvous for trendy young mothers, models, designers and fashion industry hipsters, Bills is a bit of a Sydney institution.

Eat: the cafe is famous for its brunch menu - ricotta hotcakes with banana and and honeycomb butter ($16.10) is a classic.

Bills, 433 Liverpool Street, Darlinghurst, (02 9360 9631)

Epi d’or - Milsons Point

Who: only 15 people can fit in this hole-in-the-wall cafe; but its Parisian-inspired space, from the La Vie En Rose pink walls, to the red-and-cream woven bistro chairs and tin garden tables mean Epi d'or is constantly filled to the brim with Kirribilli regulars waiting for their morning coffee and croissant.

Eat: the melt-in-your-mouth bircher muesli ($12) and anything from the vast selection of delicious French breads.

Epi d'Or, Shop 11, Bligh Street, Kirribilli, (02 99225613)

DOV at Delectica - Potts Point

Who: loud chatter constantly fills this famous long and narrow L shaped cafe (there are 2 entrances, one for takeaway and one for dining in). The relaxed atmosphere means you'll find anyone from the Potts Point cool kids, to backpackers to ksubi-wearing-artists eating here.

Eat: the sultana couscous with poached pear and honeyed yogurt ($14).

DOV, 130 Victoria Street, Potts Point, (02 9368 0600)
