Sorry but really struggle to say something great about this place... $4.70 for a coffee... really? I think we are crazy here in Sydney! There was absolutely nothing special on the menu, nothing interesting or unusual. And it was quite pricey. I am a local,...More

This typical desert was to die for. Pomegranate, pistachios and white chocolate. Oh my gosh. Heaven on earth.

Love Bills for breakfast or lunch. Fast and friendly service, very informal with a great selection of 'dishes'. Never been disappointed here.

Broke my fast here over the weekend, a breakfast institution. Bills is known for his eggs, and they didn't disappoint - good serving size and very creamy. Had a side of halloumi and avocado which was also very good but a bit too much food....More

Description
Bills Darlinghurst, this is where it all began, in 1992. The miniscule kitchen and tiny dining room in one of Darlo's old backstreet pub buildings, serving just a blackboard-menu breakfast and lunch, set the tone for bills still does today. Local by-laws allowed only a few seats - hence the now much-copied communal table where everyone eats together, reading the newspaper or striking up a conversation with the person enjoying scrambled eggs next to them. Today, it's still a simple Sydney corner cafe, serving a menu of bills classics.
