If you are after a simple meal, stay away. This place offers dinner combinations that are surprising, unusual and beautifully blended. The restaurant is small, so book earlier as it gets packed and noisy. The friendly service matches the cheerful atmosphere. There are daily specials but honestly the regular menu does not need to be supplemented - it's great already.

Some of the best hash browns in Sydney. Go early to beat the crowds and to get a parking spot . The pace is a tight squeeze for tables and offer shared seating at the main table

I was introduced to Brown Sugar by a Bondi local and had no expectations. My first visit got me hooked on their consistently outstanding food delivered in the perfect mix of friendliness and faultless efficiency. My only difficulty on visiting Brown Sugar is whether to go with something new from there excellent menu or stick with my old favourite of... More

Lot of hype about their breakfast. Was less than impressed. Ordered some poached egg dish with asparagus and truffle oil. Eggs were overcooked and covered in some greasy crumbs of some nature. Asparagus were greasy. No truffle in the dish at all. Bread was cold. All round a shocker dish. Wont be heading back in a hurry.

Slow service- but befitting of the relaxed bondi atmosphere. Food is always good and although trendy and small, they try to be accommodating with kids which is great. Love the menu, tried and true. .. and excellent for breakfast.

I really wanted to like this place, I really did. After reading rave reviews, my husband and I decided to give it a try on a busy Sunday afternoon. We waited for 30 minutes for a table, the food being served looked amazing, we could hardly wait. Finally got a table and ordered drinks that never came. Our food took... More

This is a little gem of a cafe that couples as a dinner place throughout the week. Open for breakfast, brunch and lunch on Fri/Sat/Sun from 8:30am - 2:30pm. The menu is great, it mixes up your usual breakfast fare and plenty of healthy options. This trend follows through into lunch with great looking salads and fresh sandwiches and pasta.... More

Been here for breakfast which was always good. But never for dinner. Food here is modern australian. We start with a haloumi salad which I find very oily, but it's covered in honey so sweet too. We share a brisket which had been slow cooked (it's a special), a lamb dish and a cabbage salad. It's all tasty and flavoursome.... More

Brown sugar has always been great but this recent lunch visit just confirmed it is better than ever. Tasty, innovative, interesting and most importantly delicious! So many places just do your routine scrambled / poached egg versions but brown sugars brunch is so much more interesting and tasty
