Weekend Brunch - Act Casual Cafeteria - Food-Wine-Travel with Roberta

Top 5 Weekend Brunch

While Sydney has hundreds of cafés offering great coffee and breakfast fare 7 days a week, weekend brunch calls for something different. These five restaurants go beyond the usual bacon and eggs or bircher muesli, with menus that echo the innovative food they serve at lunch or dinner the rest of the week; and the bonus is, unless you hit the breakfast martinis too hard, you’ll spend a lot less!


Act Casual, Brooklyn
www.actcasual.co
Amanda Gonzalez spends most of the week making cheese, jam, pickles, pastries and other delicious things, that she and husband, Lincoln, sell at this sunny corner café Friday-Sunday. Tuna empanadas, potato tortilla, fennel and pork sausage rolls and great tapas join excellent coffee and sweet treats in a corner of the world that’s lost in time.


Wieczorkowski, Woollahra
www.wieczorkowski.com.au
Breakfasts at this wonderful Polish deli-cum-café range from hearty fry-ups of sausage, egg and potato to sweet tortes, cheesecakes and slices of poppy seed, apple or gingerbread. Best of all are paczki, Poland’s answer to doughnuts, filled with fruit compotes, glazed and infinitely better!


Delicado, McMahons Point
www.delicado.com.au
Huevos sound so much sexier than eggs. Especially as huevos rancheros (with tomato salsa, jalapeno, fried beans and avocado), rotos (pan-fried potato, jamon, morcilla or chorizo) or paelleras (mini-paella pans of vegies, jamon and black beans). There’s also Spanish coffee and a Bloody Matador!


Yellow, Potts Point
www.yellowsydney.com.au
Brent Savage’s weekend brunch, at this cosy nook underneath the iconic Yellow House building, is now 100% vegetarian – but interesting enough that even diehard carnivores won’t miss the bacon. Charcoal-black liquorice bread with cultured butter remains, as does the wonderful breakfast martini with marmalade and apple brandy.


Efendy, Balmain
www.efendy.com.au
Inspired by the breakfast houses of Van in eastern Turkey, Somer Sivrioglu’s weekend brunch sees over 30 dishes served for the table to share, including spicy sujuk sausages, boreks, baked eggs, freshly-baked pide, Turkish cheeses and jams. House-made lemonade with pomegranate awakens the taste buds … as does the raki.

We made the pot-sticker dumplings and bang bang chicken – once again both exceeded our expectations. My husband keeps saying it’s better ordering this than going out to restaurants as the recipes and food quality are amazing.

The whole Be Inspired experience has helped me love cooking again. I was sick of cooking the same old things - meal time is a lot brighter thanks to you Roberta.

I loved the Fresh & Easy Chicken – simple instructions, only a few ingredients and the time factor absolutely spot on. Then came the highlight, the taste, no compromise on the enjoyment of that meal! For the time poor Fresh & Easy hits the mark indeed.

Thank you for stocking our pantry with such authentic ingredients and quality produce ... I’ve so enjoyed picking fresh leaves from the herb pots and loved listening to the chef's playlist while cooking. We really like the flexibility of cooking over a couple of days and changing the order we cook the dishes in when we want to.

I am absolutely loving these boxes! There are ingredients I have never worked with before so having the confidence to try something new is so much fun! The recipes are just amazing and the notes on what can be prep’d beforehand are a great help too. Thank you so much.

Loving Be Inspired! Felt like a kid opening up a Christmas present when the box arrived. Fresh herb pots are a nice touch!

Thanks so much for the Fresh & Easy Meal, it was excellent. We regularly get another meal kit delivery – your offering is vastly superior and a similar price, so big ticks.

I'm a competent cook whose learned so much from the Recipes+Videos Packs. The recipes are yummy and Roberta’s video guidance offers so many little tips to improve flavour and organise the flow of preparation. I enjoy her warmth, sense of humour, and ability to giggle at herself when she occasionally messes up.
