Best New Cafes in Sydney: April 2024



Sydney's favourite Japanese-inspired slow-living homewares store, Provider, has just teamed up with Artificer Coffee in the collaboration of dreams. Serving coffee in deliciously decadent ceramic mugs, you can enjoy a slow sip whilst your browse top-tier homewares and watch the team in the candle lab pour Provider Store signature candles.

The newest kid on the Manly cafe block is Noon, brought to you by the Good Good Company - the same folk behind Manly faves Chica Bonita, Sunset Sabi and Busta. With a simple yet chic fit-out and a prime sunlit corner just a block back from the Beach Noon is fuelling locals and visitors alike with classic coffees, iced matches or a shaken tahini latte. For food think elevated B&Es with house barbecue sauce, scrambled eggs with black lime za’atar crisp, sourdough and cultured butter or Rosti with cured ocean trout, fennel and herb salad, lemon myrtle, crème fraiche.

Tita Carinderia 

If you're a breaky/brunch lover and you haven't yet visited Tita Carinderia, you've got some priorities to reconsider. This Filipino bakery and cafe will require multiple visits if you want to make a dent in the offering. The exceptionally popular ube flavour can be found in almost anything (the soft serve is a must) as can other popular Filipino ingredients. It's the perfect place to try something new before leaving with a sweet treat for the road. 

Shop 4/259 Illawarra Road, Marrickville 

Pantry Story

Pantry Story 

Pantry Story is, well, the story of a new generation of neighbourhood bakers doing things differently. Playing with flavour and the medium of baked goods, you can expect the likes of pandan scrolls, chilli oil and cheese twists and brisket hand pie. Arrive hungry and arrive early. 

Sitchu Tip: Do not leave without securing a hazelnut chocolate almond babka. 

336 Paramatta Road, Stanmore 

Best New Cafes in Sydney: January 2024


Fresh, handmade bread, deli meats and cheese - Salumerie is slinging the holy trifecta and we can't think of anywhere we'd rather be come lunchtime. Shop deli bits and pieces to-go or settle in for a freshly made sandwich and coffee. Our picks are the Napoli (prosciutto di parma, rocket, stracciatella, shaved parmesan, olive oil EVOO) and vodka polpette (polpette in vodka ragu sauce, buffalo ricotta, rocket, saved parmesan, eggplant a fungheto). 

Hang tight for nights at Salumerie coming soon! 

Sitchu Tip: Get there early to secure the goods - you're not the only salami lover in town!
