Time Out says
French it up on a weekday at Macquarie Street's little pocket of Paris on the first floor of the Mint
Ascend to the first floor of Sydney's oldest public building, the Mint, to find this relaxed café and bistro serving modern French fare on weekdays.
Breakfast offers a laidback menu of pastries, toasted sandwiches, muesli, granola and omelettes, while lunch goes a little fancier with oysters and mignonette; scampi in rosemary butter and salmon tartare as starters, followed by mains such as mulloway with tiger prawn-stuffed courgette flower; veal cutlet stuffed with brie and truffles and the pièce de résistance: chef's signature suckling pig.
Housed in such historically rich surrounds as a former hospital wing (once the southern portion of Governor Macquarie’s notorious 'Rum Hospital') and coining factory (it was the first overseas branch of the London Mint), Bistro Mint is an architecturally elegant sanctuary in the middle of the CBD.
