Review - Opera Bar Cafe

Alex Harmon got her breakfast with a view this week...

You can’t get more ‘Sydney’ than breakfast by the harbour, yet choices for Sydneysiders and tourists alike are lacking down on the lower concourse.

Enter the new-look Opera Bar who say: don’t just come for sunset drinks, start your day here, too!

For those who want a lazy breakfast there are plenty of options, our pick would be the Fig, Goat’s Curd, Mint and Walnut Toast ($12) with...

...the barista’s own Single Origin Roasters Cold Brew ($5) which has an ice-cube that rises out of the coffee glass like an over-sized cruise ship.

If you’re on the go, (the café opens at 7am) you can grab a homemade muesli bar or a protein ball (vegan) and a 100% raw, organic Cold Pressed Juice ($8) from Bronte-based juice brand, Cali Press, and be on your way.

Or start the day properly with a Bacon and Egg Roll ($12) with chilli jam, or a Spinach, Mushroom and Raclette Toastie ($12) and a coffee.

The vibe is completely different at this time of day, without the rush of tourists, theatre-goers and thirtieth birthday parties, there’s an unimaginable peacefulness.

It’s arguably the best time to soak up unrestricted harbour views – you just have to share it with the cruise ships.
