Beach Cafe, Malabar 59 Bay Parade, Malabar 3.0 ‘Basic beachside brekkie’ Hello, Beach Cafe. I hear you’re the rogue twin brother of Pool Cafe. You’re almost identical, but located a little further down the coast and attracting far fewer brekkie questers. Given your menu was similar to Pool’s, I opted for your crispy corn fritters…

BangBang 113 Reservoir Street, Surry Hills - Map 3.66 ‘Speedy service meets disco decor’ Well hello, BangBang. I like your less-is-more attitude to decor.

Gusto Espresso Bar 1/16 Hall Street, Bondi Beach 2.6 ‘Gustoso baked eggs and brew’ Hello Gusto. You’re kind of like the other Gustos, but not.
