Located in Alexandria within a former 19th century pie factory, this commune of cool offers a hipster café and all-day market that’s one of the hottest weekend destinations for lunch in Sydney. A farmhouse-style warehouse offers rustic interior design surrounded in lush gardens and terraces lined in dining and lounge furnishings with a farmer-chic twist. Iron windows and corrugated walls frame an interior space of rafter ceiling and cement floors juxtaposing white wainscoting and series of glass pastry displays surrounding the main dining room. 


Less busy during the week, opt for a Thursday or Friday so that’s there’s less wait for a coveted table that’s first-come only.

Last Word

All all-day menu begins with three-cheese toast or bacon-egg roll followed by lunch of spicy meatballs, falafel wrap and savory salads like the Mediterranean or Secret Garden composed of homegrown carrots, spinach and mustard seeds.
