It’s not every day that I venture out towards the CBD these days, but when I do, it’s usually on a Sunday when more than half of the cafes I want to visit are not actually open. Boo.
I am however, fortunate enough to have friends who have excellent food recommendations, which is how I end up all the way in Woolloomooloo for a quick bite at Smoking Gun Bagels.
It’s a tiny store tucked away in the quieter back streets of Woollomooloo- not exactly an easy find, but the promise of delicious homemade bagels and coffee is enough to draw a constant stream of visitors. Afterall- there aren’t all that many places which do bagels in Sydney!
Seating is very limited but bagels are a quick eat so it isn’t a long wait if you’re after a table. The menu is quite simple, with options ranging from the brekkie staple of bacon & eggs, to more exciting flavours like Kimcheese as well as dessert options if something like lemon meringue is more your thing.
