Averry Cafe & Bar Sydney, CBD

Averry Cafe & Bar, Sydney Eats, DinnerSydney-siders most likely will have heard of Avery Cafe, with their signature pink lighting and super cutely decked out space, complete with cushions and pink panther plushies. By day it’s a cafe, a trendy brunch spot in the CBD, but by night it transforms into a bar, with a sophisticated cocktail menu and dinner options to pair.

We’re here for dinner, and although the lack of natural lighting means that the it’s more neon pink that we’d imagined, it’s not stopping the many diners from taking selfies with the beautiful backdrop and food!

Labld, Marrickville

Labld, Marrickville, Sydney eats cafe

Labld is the kind of cafe you wish existed on your street. It’s quiet and unassuming, but once you’re inside, lively with a great kitchen pumping out a menu filled with diverse options from your standard brekkie fare to more exotic options like dumplings and pancakes.

Unfortunately for us, it’s located on the other side of Sydney, making us super jealous of the locals. But even so, it’s well worth the drive.

Like many cafes, the menu is highly seasonal, and so when Labld invited us to try their new menu, we were only too eager to give it a go. There’s no shortage of delicious options and we’re impressed by range, with some Asian influences, Middle Eastern influences, some healthy veggie filled options and basically everything that I’d want to try!

But first, the drinks.

Three Beans Cafe, Castle Hill

Three Beans Cafe, Castle Towers
Matcha Latte ($4.50, large)
There’s no shortage of brunch options in Castle Towers, with the opening of multiple cafes in the past year. But if you’re after a quieter spot for a quick bite, there’s also Three Beans Café, one of the older cafés in the area.

Mocha Frappe ($6.50)
We’re visiting on a weekend, and though its busy, it’s not difficult to grab a table. Service is quick and efficient, and our coffees and meals are served very shortly after ordering at the counter.

Smoked Salmon on Rye
There’s a generous serving of smoked salmon and guacomole on the Smoked Salmon on rye, although we’re a little disappointed there’s only one egg! It’s a simple combination, but we felt like it could do with a bit of sauce for flavour and the rye a little more toasting.

Corn and Zucchini Fritters ($13.90)
The Corn and zucchini fritters are an impressively low energy (calorie) option, with a serve only being 1010kJ. Part of reason is that the serve size is notably smaller than what you might find elsewhere, but it’s great for a light lunch. The fritters are lightly pan fried, they’re thin and soft and tasty although nothing to rave about.

Nourish Bowl ($14.90)
The menu consist mostly of your typical brunch staples (think eggs on toast) but what captures my attention are the selection of veggie packed bowls. And I’m not disappointed by the fresh veggies in my Nourish Bowl. It comes filled with grains, peas, kale, avocado, red cabbage, carrot, onion, coriander and egg with ginger dressing.

Turka, Crows Nest

TURKA Cafe Meze Bar, Crows Nest

You know you’re in for a good meal when you’re given two tables for a table for two.

I’ve only had Turkish food a handful of times and if there’s one thing I remember, it’s that it’s always a feast! And that’s the vibe we’re getting at Turka, which is filled diners with tables filled to the brim with delicious share plates. It’s a cosy Turkish cafe/meze bar located on the busy corner of Pacific Highway and Willoughby Road.

It’s a relatively new addition to the Crows Nest dining scene, one of the few Turkish restaurants in the area. And there’s plenty to choose from with an extensive breakfast, lunch and dinner menus. We’re eyeing the Turkish breakfast for our next visit, but we’re here first for dinner, a menu made of dips, cold meze and hot meze.
