The best healthy breakfasts in Sydney
When you go out for breakfast it can be hard not to go straight for the brisket waffles. But for those days when you’re not nursing a hangover, here are the breakfasts you order that won’t make you feel guilty for the rest of the day. Here are Sydney’s eight best healthy breakfasts, none of which, you’ll be glad to hear, compromise on flavour.
The best Sunday roasts in Sydney
Our colonial heritage is responsible for the proliferation of British-style pubs across this great southern land, as well as the tradition of the Sunday roast. But rather than spending your Sunday baking over a hot oven, let the professionals take care of the cooking and head out to these ace Sydney pubs putting on a proper roast lunch or dinner during the colder months. We're talking legs of lamb with mint jelly and roast veg, roast beef and yorkies or maybe a chook with lemon and herbs and lots of gravy. Whatever your preferred cut, there's a top pub roast out there for you.
The best patisseries in Sydney
We’re pretty lucky that here in Sydney we have some of the best darn pastry chefs in the country. From the genius that is the strawberry watermelon cake at Black Star Pastry, to that ginger tart at Bourke Street Bakery, here’s where to get a lil’sweet stuff in Sydney.
The best first date bars in Sydney
No one is saying first dates are easy – there’s the reasonable fear you might insult them, bore them or that they may turn out to be secret racists. And it’s worse still if you think you might like them – so many expectations to manage. Do yourself a favour and pick a location for that first meeting that matches your vibe, be it low key and local or a litmus test for how they feel about the things you love best – namely wine.

Van Morrison’s Masterpieces Featuring Vince Jones And The Astral Orchestra
Beloved Australian singer, trumpeter, songwriter and performer Vince Jones has assembled a crack squad of Australian jazz musicians, with musical direction and piano by Matt McMahon, to form the Astral Orchestra. This super-group of local legends will, for one night only, take on Van Morrison's seminal late '60s and early '70s albums Astral Weeks and Moondance. These are the records that turned Morrison into Van the Man, and gave us 'Madame George' and 'Into the Mystic'. Not only were both albums critically acclaimed (although, for Astral Weeks, the road to recognition was a slow one) they were also hugely influenential for a young Vince Jones. This show at Angel Place's City Recital Hall follows two sold out performances at the Melbourne International Jazz Festival, so act fast. Astral Orchestra full lineup: Matt McMahon – piano and music directorBen Hauptman – guitarBrett Hirst – bassJames Hauptman – drumsPhil Slater – trumpetPaul Cutlan - saxaphone and fluteMichelle O'Young – violinStephanie Zarka – violinJustine Clarke – vocals
