If you’re looking for an interesting way to explore Sydney, why not let its many cafes, bars and restaurants be your guide?

A self-guided food crawl through the streets of this city could make for a memorable day – just make sure you pace yourself so you don’t miss out on sampling any delectable dishes along the way!

It’s up to you how you organise your trip around Sydney. Do you want to plan a route beforehand, so you know exactly where you’re headed? Or, if you prefer a more organic approach, stop in any eatery that takes your fancy?

Give your tastebuds a trip around the world!

We encourage you to take advantage of the fact that Sydney is a melting pot of different cultures and cuisines. How about selecting different cafes, bars and restaurants based on their country of origin?


For instance, you could begin your day in the city centre with breakfast at Momo Brasserie. This  stunning cafe, located at 65 Elizabeth Street, offers a number of classic breakfast dishes. We recommend having something small (you’ve got a big day of eating ahead of you, after all), so try Momo Brasserie’s $5 menu.

This contains various muffins, banana bread, bagels, raisin toast and croissants – everything you need to start the day off right, while leaving you plenty of room for more food!


Your next stop could be Haberfield, which is about a 14-minute drive from central Sydney. This area is known for its authentic Italian cuisine and contains a number of glorious dining choices.

How about Dolcissimo, which offers a huge range of stunning pizzas? Try the Capricciosa (a tomato-based pizza covered in mushrooms, doubled-smoked ham, olives and stringy mozzarella), or the Mama Mia (which contains pepperoni, mushrooms, onions, basil, olive oil and chilli).

It’ll be tough, but try to limit yourself to one slice – there are plenty more restaurants for you to visit yet.

Afternoon Tea

For afternoon tea, head to Marrickville – an 11-minute drive in your car rental Sydney Domestic Airport,  Haberfield. This is where the best Greek restaurants can be found.

Enjoy a bite to eat in Seed, which offers a delicious array of sides and starters that make for a perfect afternoon snack. The Grilled Lamb Souvlaki is a real crowd-pleaser, as are the Prawns Saganaki.


Is it time for dinner already? Take a 20-minute drive in your rental to the Punchbowl for some fabulous Lebanese food. If you’re still feeling hungry, good job!

Check out El Jannah, a family-run business located on 701 Punchbowl Road. Choose from a selection of delicious rolls, such as the Tawouk Roll, Shawarma Roll or Lahme Roll, which are all under $8.

This restaurant is also famous for its chicken – so don’t forget to factor this in when you’re picking what to eat!


Congratulations on making it this far. Now there’s only one meal left – dessert! We suggest heading back to Sydney for this one – it will take you about 30 minutes, which should give you some time to digest your fabulous dinner.

The French Riviera in Double Bay serves indulgent ice cream and dessert boxes inspired by the dessert capital of the world – France. If you’re fit to burst, you might want to ask for a single scoop of ice cream.

However, if you think you can handle it, try the Tahitienne dessert box. This boasts ice cream, fresh bananas, chocolate sauce, whipped cream and delicious, crunchy nuts.
