So another Sunday came and went. This time we decided to head into the city. After a quick look through some of our favourite stores and boutiques, we felt the need for some sustenance. But where to go? Decided we didn’t feel like the trek across to Wooloomooloo to China Doll, Lowenbrau not right for the weather, Pony no phone number in my mobile to check if they were open. So checked what phone numbers were in my mobile and picked Cafe Sydney. Haven’t been there since early last year, so it was good to go again. We were lucky to get an outside table, especially as the day was not too glarey. Bottle of Grand Arras and the cold seafood plate was to be our fare. The seafood was so fresh, with a nice selection of Marron, Sydney Rock and Pacific oysters, Blue Swimmer Crab, King Prawns, Scampi. Apparently Cafe SYdney receives two deliveries of seafood a day, no wonder it is so fresh, with crabs and marron coming in live and being cooked on premise.
We followed this up with what has to be the biggest(and best value for money) cheese platter. The three cheeses were enough for 4 people. Over all a great long lunch.

Cafe Sydney is a great place for a long Sunday lunch but book early as they can fill up quick. Leave the camera at home unless you want to look like a tourist(and there are plenty of them dining there).
