At Newtown's Continental, a downstairs deli opens at 11am and becomes a casual bar/restaurant as the later hours creep in, while upstairs there's a bistro for those fancier nights out. But downstairs is where we like to hang and make the most of the collection of wines and French, Italian, Spanish and Aussie cheeses that they serve with housemade jelly. They bake ridiculously good, chewy, crusty bread here, too. Order it.
Here's a list of Sydney venues for lazy afternoons and late nights, when all you want to do is graze on a luxurious cheeseboard and put a solid dent in a bottle of wine while you catch up on the last few years, days or minutes of someone's life and debate the age old question: cheddar, Brie or blue?
