It is no secret that Sydney’s café scene is strong! Standards are really high & that people are always on the lookout for the best one in town. I am a self-confessed brunch addict and if you ask me which my favourite café for this month is, start making your way to DEAR DELICIOUS in Dulwich Hill!
You will be greeted by yellow painted window frames instantly adding a splash of colour to your morning! A relaxed décor and an open kitchen will welcome you as you swing through that door!
There are lots of seating options inside and outside… But wait ‘til you see the café’s secret courtyard! A rustic outdoor bar, colourful lounges, wooden tables, veggie patches! Real urban garden setting, sorted!
Dear Delicious grows some of their fresh ingredients out in their backyard! Don’t you just love that the chefs can just step out of the kitchen and pick fresh herbs and produce for your meal? Their dishes have been given great thought and here are few of my favourites!
First in the list is their signature “OCEAN BLUE”! This dish has the goodness of banana, mango, coconut milk, blue spirulina, dragon fruit & vanilla served in a coco bowl! Such a stunner!
How about the “SHREK BURGER”? Looks like a matcha bun, right? Ooooooh, biting into that falafel, avocado, raw beetroot, crispy kale & cultured veggies were absolutely delightful!
You can tell that James & Greg, the café owners are really passionate about plants through their creations! You can feel real connection with nature as you devour this WARM BAGEL BOMB! The nutritious combination of caramelized onion, haloumi, carrot dip, hummus and creamy slaw was seriously so tasty!
The Dear Delicious motto, Eat Healthy & Be Happy is perfectly executed in this “Nourish Me Sunshine” plate!
This is definitely not your typical Steak & Eggs! I mean where else can you have Grass fed Cape grim steak, chimichurri, caramelized onion, kumara & beetroot chips all in one serving? Such generous fresh food!
Fluffy Pineapple Pancake for dessert? This for me was the star of the day! Not only that it’s beautifully presented but also very pleasurable to eat! Seriously so delicious! And just so you know, the cafe also provides vegan and gluten free options!
Dear Delicious is absolutely the perfect place to catch up with your friends, chitchat with your bestie or celebrate an occasion while enjoying healthy & ethically sourced food in a sunny courtyard! Spread the word and gather your brunch crew!
