Hg2 : The Hedonist


Grab a spot on the sturdy wooden communal table inside Shortlist, one of the delightful locally minded cafés in Sydney, or find a perch on a wooden stool/crate on the pavement to sip espresso, organic juice or an icy apple, berry and yoghurt frappe. If you’re peckish, food items (and witty quips) are chalked up on the blackboard. Tuck into home-style snacks like avocado on thick slices of sourdough, served with SP sauce and lemon oil, baked beans with bocconcini and chorizo or homemade muesli. The café sources most of its stock from Sydney suppliers – the fabulous array of pastries and sweets come courtesy of Black Star bakery in Newtown, while the coffee is from Balmain’s Little Marionette.
