The North Spoon

Bringing diners the best of Sydney's local artisans, The North Spoon is a bright and airy watering hole in the Lower North Shore, plating fresh breakfast and lunch feeds for your Sunday morning pick-me-up. Serving goodies like banoffee french toast and chickpea soba ramen, trust us when we say both your body and your gram will thank you.


An eclectic bar and lounge awash with retro neon signs, palm frond patterns and plush paisley booths, Misfits is nestled on George Street in Redfern, whipping up an impressive range of cocktails like the berry godmother and rocky mountain sour as well as a selection of bar and bistro favourites. A hidden bar of dreams: if this doesn't up your gram cred, we don't know what will.


A Japanese hidden gem located in Kingsford, when it comes to nailing the perfect sushi spread in taste and presentation, Niji takes the cake. Serving up gorgeous rainbow rolls and an intoxicating menu of cocktails, at this posh haunt, you'll be reaching out for your phone with literally every dish.


Night or day, at AALIA, there's always something magical going on. A celebration of Middle-Eastern flavours, the restaurant is housed in otherworldly architecture, serving up a cryptic menu with delights such as Pharaoh's foie gras, chickpea masabacha, ochre mussels and much more.
