going all the places, running all the races, eating all the things

Tag Archives: Surry Hills

Bang Bang is kind of out of the way for me. It’s never on the way to something, but is worth the detour to visit.

Cute interiors, good coffee and a monster vegetarian breakfast (for the princely sum of $17).





We didn’t really mean to end up at Orto Trading Co – the plan was to meet at Devon Cafe but of course there was a queue and in a bright spark moment I suggested we check out Orto seeing as it was basically around the corner.

What a pleasant surprise! The space is gloriously bright and airy, almost Scandinavian in its feel. The food however was great Sydney style breakfasts – with great new takes on classics & quite a few good vegetarian choices.



I was feeling a little worse for wear so baked eggs were just the thing – pumpkin roasted until just sweet, slivers of shiny grilled red capsicum, creamy goats cheese, still wobbly orange yolks and punchy juicy little tomatoes. AND two pieces of demse dark toast – what a feast!


The boys had crispy zucchini cakes with oozy haloumi & a crisp quick pickled carrot. Springtime feels right there.


We also noticed a tasty sounding breakfast cocktail menu, and the option to reserve tables. Can’t think of any other place in Surry Hills that is so good where you can book – would be lovely for a birthday brunch..
