Time Out says
A mod French-Japanese café-cum-diner from Rhodes finds a home in Darling Square
After conquering Rhodes with an ambitious brekky menu, Auvers Café now has an outpost in Haymarket. The day-to-night café offers French-inspired brekky fare with Japanese flavour profiles – think eggs benedict with ponzu hollandaise; smoked pulled pork, onsen eggs, pork floss and a toasted croissant; or a traditional omelette, with crab meat and bonito mayo. They're all about the sweet and savoury combos – French toast comes served with honey ricotta, caramelised bacon, yuzu grape jelly, pork floss and vanilla ice cream. Matcha enthusiasts can get their green tea hit via matcha glazed pancakes with raspberry sorbet, hojicha tea or matcha lattes.
Inside you'll find a striking Gillie and Marc mural (the pair behind those dog's head/man's body bronze sculptures you'll have spotted across Sydney and the world), and the art-edged theme continues with cocktails named after Van Gogh. Bending the elbow isn't time sensitive here, with tipples being served from 10am into the evening. After dark, the café switches to restaurant mode, plating up the likes of Japanese-style steak tartare served with soy cured egg yolks, confit duck with potato dauphine and a yuzu purée, and escargots with edamame, bonito and caviar.
