Under the bridge, you’ll find a solid new café offering
Considering Kirribilli is a beautiful, often visited harbourside suburb, you'd think the standard of eating within postcode would be pretty high. There's a decent pub, a lovely club, great markets and good burgers, but not much by the way of café culture. BTB Kirribilli is looking to change that. Taking up shop underneath the Cahill Expressway, the café gutted an old fish shop and now has pared-back, industrial interiors.
Time Out arrived to find Little Dragon pumping on the stereo and paintings by local artist James lesak-Atton on the walls. Food here is simple and focuses on breakfast favourites. They also do tacos and vino in the evenings.
The bacon and egg roll is a banger sanger. A buttery, toasted, not sweet (huzzah!) bun holds two fried eggs, rashers of bacon and a lick of garlicky aioli. The corn fritters also take a breakfast staple and deliver. Under a thicket of herbs and kale you’ll find two well fried eggy pucks studded with corn and daikon. There’s a chunk of avocado, sour cream and romesco – the only thing we’d ask for next time is some heat to the red sauce, or some additional hot sauce to really give it some kick.
Coffee beans come by the Black Drum for their milk blend and a rotating lot of roasters for single origin espressos, including Reuben Hills, Sample, Seven Seeds and Supreme. Brews here are velvety smooth and well made. We haven’t had a good coffee around these parts since Bay Ten Espresso opened, so the coffee alone here is a serious win for Milsons Point Station commuters too.
BTB isn’t reinventing the wheel when it comes to breakfast – but instead offering what this part of Kirribilli has been missing for too long: good coffee, super-friendly service and a classic Sydney brunch options.
