Breakfast is considered one of the most important meals of the day and is definitely a necessity before any of the Blackmore's Sydney Running Festival races. Luckily race goers can refuel and get race ready at one of Sydney's countless gourmet breakfast spots.
Weekend breakfast in Sydney is considered a religion and nowadays Sydney has a plethora of flexible dining options. From green smoothies to gluten-free pancakes, Sydney's wholefood breakfasts are a classic. Find some of the city's finest options below to help you prepare for race day:
- Kitchen by Mike, Rosebury is a carefree, warehouse style café featuring home-style cooking with a focus on sustainability. With no formal menu, the emphasis is on utilising produce that is high in season. The food is served canteen style and also has a take-away counter to accommodate busy diners and those after a quick coffee hit.
- Henley's Wholefoods, Bondi Junction is delighting health junkies and fitness fanatics citywide. On the breakfast front, nourishing maca hotcakes created with almond meal and finished with caramalised banana, shredded nuts and coconut yoghurt is the winning option.
- Bread & Circus Wholefoods Canteen, Alexandria is a foodie precinct that leaves café goers feeling nurtured, well fed and recharged. The menu changes daily but keeps an eye out for the cloud of eggs floating in baked ricotta, the morning jumble of Bircher and granola or breakfast with Gwyneth.
- O-organics, Surry Hills usesall organic products and offers a number of vegan options. For the egg fan, the one-egg omelet with herbs, chutney and crumbled goats cheese is a winner. Equally excellent for lunch, this place is a hit if you are a late riser.
- The Grounds of Alexandria has the gluten-free folk covered with its wide range of breakfast options including tasty smashed avocado. This heritage listed warehouse space now boasts an organic garden where the produce is used in the kitchen.
- KeenWah at Bondi Farmers' Market have recently opened a stall at the Bondi Farmers' Market serving tasty offerings such as quinoa-based granola cups; cacao brownies; and 'Power' porridge with toppings like fig and almond or rhubarb and yoghurt.
- Clipper Café, Glebe serves rich food using locally sourced ingredients. Their must-try breakfast options include the Arabian Style Bircher Muesli, with pistachios, poached fruit and yoghurt and their Baked Eggs, served with spinach, feta, chorizo and herb toast.
