Hg2 : The Hedonist

A Hedonist’s guide to…

Sydney

Black Star Pastry
Black Star Pastry is a much-loved patisserie and restaurant in Sydney’s Newtown area, with another delicious outpost in Rosebery.
Bondi FM
Turn down an alley and follow the yellow-and-white thongs stencilled onto the ground to find this ultra laid-back café/bar belonging to Bondi 88.0 FM - the local community radio station.
Four Ate Five
Quirky and casual, this is a great little café fronting the hubbub of hip Crown Street, attracting a steady stream of fashionable young locals with their signature Macbook or skateboard tucked under their arms.
Chargrill Charlie’s
Don't be fooled into thinking this is some ordinary John Doe chicken shop. Chargrill Charlies is an institution.
Shortlist
Tucked in a street-front terrace in an eclectic inner-city suburb surrounded by converted warehouse apartments and hidden art galleries, The Shortlist attracts an alternative clientele and the vibe is ultra-relaxed.
Flat White
In the well-to-do suburb of Woollahra, directly opposite the charming Lord Dudley pub, this unassuming little café does a roaring neighbourhood trade.
Little Ethels
You could never accuse Little Ethels of lacking in character, with eclectic interiors that would put an Alice in Wonderland set in the shade.
Beach Burrito
Casual, brightly-coloured and ultra laid-back, sandy feet are almost expected at this cheap and cheerful Mexican snack house.
Black Star
Whether it's sweet treats or savoury stuff you're after, you're guaranteed that pretty much anything at Black Star comes loaded with calories. So worth it, though.
Harry’s Café de Wheels
If eating a pie is a religious experience, then Harry's is the Vatican; it's no wonder a slew of celebrities have chowed down here.
Café Giulia
With its warehouses, urban gardens and fiercely proud city-dwellers, Chippendale is one of Sydney's coolest burgeoning inner-city suburbs, and Café Giula fits in well.
