The Brunch Boys’ guide to brekkie

By Ashley Cameron |

I Quit Sugar - Matt took 500g of mince…

Working at IQS, it’s hard to pinpoint a day when we’re not talking about food, or eating it (hello, work perks!)

And, one of our fave things to do on a Monday morning is debrief about where we ate in the weekend. If you ever need foodie inspo, you don’t need to go too far and having our very own Brunch Boy on staff for the last couple of years meant we were never short of a new spot to try.

Here’s Matt’s definitive guide to brekkie in Sydney…

The top spot goes to: Morris, Paddington

This is my local and I stand by it being my fave cafe in Sydney – happily challenging anyone that says otherwise. Usually I’ll build my own brekkie… The avocado and bacon are my favourites, accompanied by fresh herbs, seeds, nuts and housemade pickles.

When you want it to be Saturday so pretend it is and treat yo' self to breakfast at @morris_sydney_.

A close second: West Juliett, Marrickville

Although I rarely venture out of the east (the bubble, I know!), it was well worth it to eat at West Juliett. I’ve had the salmon a couple of times which comes with lashings of yoghurt. A surprising combo yes, but delish. They also have a ridiculous range of treats – you’ve been warned!

When cravings come knocking: John Montagu, Woolloomooloo

With an extensive range of sandwiches, John Montagu is the perfect cure for those lazy Sunday mornings. The beef brisket is top notch and so are the mushrooms!

When you venture over the bridge: Blackwood Pantry, Cronulla

And I mean the south side bridge, not OTB to North Sydney. If you venture to Cronulla, Blackwood Pantry is an absolute must. Great vibe, great staff and a delicious menu! It’s also doggo friendly too which is perfect as so is the beach. 

Coffee + food + films + art: Paramount Coffee Project, Surry Hills

This is as hipster as it gets and Paramount is the local coffee joint for a lot of Sydney’s creatives. I have had the PCB Bibi so many times and every time, I finish it feeling fresh and completely satisfied. It’s a 12/10 breakfast so hit it up!
