If you are looking for a new cafe to try in Sydney check out our list below.

We like to support new cafes that open in Sydney – it’s a tough market and so many are now popping up. We have selected a few we have come across on Instagram that deserve some attention. Check out our list below of new cafes in Sydney that you must try.

1. Malika Bakehouse, Botany

If coffee, all day brunch and baked goods brings music to your ears, you must try Malika Bakehouse at Botany. Just looking at their Instagram is making our mouth water. They opened late 2021 as our lockdown restrictions ended and seem to be thriving since! Some of the stand out items on their menu are the spiced potato pogaca (freshly baked every morning), home made kunefe, bagels and spinach feta and ricotta borek. We highly suggest you check out their Instagram! They also open nice and early during the week at 5:30 for your pre-work coffee fix.

Smoothie Factory, Rouse Hill

Smoothie Factory at Rouse Hill is an international juice bar from the USA! All their smoothies are made with fresh fruit, with no sorbet, fillers and they are also gluten free. They have just opened in January 2022 inside Rouse Hill Town Centre. Some of the stand out items on their menu include the Pina Colada (coconut, pineapple, banana, honey and protein) and Peanut Butter Power House (peanut butter, banana, soy milk, honey and protein blend.) There are so many smoothies to pick from, you may need to go back multiple times.

My Kiki Shop, Darlinghurst

My Kiki Shop in Darlinghurst recently opened in January 2022 as well. They are a dessert shop with a twist… they make desserts shaped as human body parts (we will let you check out their Instagram to see what we mean). We have seen this place all over Instagram so it seems to be taking Sydney by storm already! It would also be the perfect stop before your next hens night haha.

Botswana Butchery, Sydney

If you like a New York City vibe and roof top bars, Botswana Butchery may be the perfect new hot spot for you. Situated in Martin Place on level 8, they go by simple, locally sourced, incredible food. They opened in December 2021 and have a menu that you will never forget, the dishes are beautifully presented and it is a very premium dining experience (even the onion soup looks amazing!)

Wan, Mascot

Wan in Mascot opened in November 2021 and their food is influenced by Taiwan and Japan. They have some awesome items on the menu including Cheeseburger Rolls, Wagyu Somen and Salt and Pepper Prawns. Their drinks menu also looks fun and exciting and they live by their slogan ‘don’t let your drink get lonely’ which we love!

New Cafe in Sydney: Cadenza Floral Cafe

If you are a North Sydney local or are wanting to try a new Instagram worthy cafe than we have found a new cafe you must visit. Cadenza Floral Cafe, looks exactly as what you would imagine it looks like after reading the name. It has your good looking dishes with beautiful pink and floral background decor (that’s bound to get you a few Instagram likes right?)

New Cafe in Sydney – Cadenza Floral Cafe

The cafe is influenced by Korean cooking with meals including waffles, bulgogi burgers and huge bacon sandwiches! They also have some beautiful drinks and regular breakfast items including french toast and granola! It seems to be the perfect place for your next girls day brunch. Or i’m sure you can drag your boyfriend along haha.

The pricing seems quite reasonable for the area and has quite a lot to pick from, which is great for our fussy eaters! It also has a great kids menu with cute little meals for them. It does seem to get quite busy, especially during brunch time so make sure to get there early.

New hidden cafe gem – North Sydney

You know we love to find the new trendy places on the block, but, we especially love to find the little ones hidden in not so obvious places. We recently came across pop-up cafe Torpedoes!

If pastries, avocados, toasties and a good coffee are on the top of your list for brunch then this is the place to find it. It has opened up on an old torpedo factory where they are turning the foreshore of North Sydney into a public area! They even have tours for any history lovers to see firsthand the improvements that have been made and what it use to be during the war.
