Located between the Harbour Bridge and the Opera House, Circular Quay Sydney offers up an addictive mixture of natural beauty and thriving local culture. Amongst the harbours and ferry tours lay hidden gems brimming with the kind of food the city is rightfully becoming known for; modern, fresh, and with historical roots. We can think of few better places to enjoy breakfast in Sydney than the Circular Quay. Just don't ask why it's a rectangle.

Wild Sage, Barangaroo

Serving up food loaded with both flavor and value in the Barangaroo hotspot is no mean feat, but the team at Wild Sage manage it daily with charm. Contemporary Aussie is the prevailing theme with a touch of Parisian street cafe. A simple online booking system is perfect for nabbing a choice seat before tucking into Breakfast Circular Quay style.

Kansas City Shuffle & Tuxedo

Behind a confusing name and an imposing former chocolate factory facade visitors will find a welcoming hole-in-the-wall style cafe. Perfect for grabbing a seriously good coffee to go, Kansas City also excels at sit down breakfast treats. Freshly baked pastries and traditional breakfast options are consistently fantastic, but the lemon curd pancakes are our favorite for a breakfast Circular Quay pick.

Pier 8 Cafe

Built, surprisingly enough, on an old pier, Pier 8 is a uniquely Circular Quay Sydney location. Flanked by two towering glass walls with views across the Harbour, diners take a table on the original wooden deck for an earthy morning meal. The menu has an impressive range of options from ricotta hotcakes to shakshouka and everything in between, perfect for big groups or small intimate groups trying to find where to dine at Circular Quay.


Cafe Morso

Taking full advantage of the local harbour aesthetic, Cafe Morso blends seamlessly into the iron girders and roomy industrial architecture to create something both sleekly modern and historically rooted. Knowledgeable baristas are on hand to guide you through their locally roasted blends and varied breakfast menu from early morning. Choose from a waterfront seat or relax in the rich aromas inside one of the top cafes in Circular Quay Sydney.

Brew Bros.

With a focus on top class coffee and made to order juice, Brew Bros. is one of those cafes in Circular Quay Sydney which create regulars as quickly as they do flat whites. The rustic interior, with a focus on stressed wood, gives the feeling of being in a wrecked antique boat which is somehow still serving classic cafe breakfast fare. Homely, friendly, and opening before the sun rises, Brew Bros. serve up the perfect laid-back breakfast in Sydney.

Of course, simply taking an early morning stroll can be the best way to find where to dine at Circular Quay. Old warehouses and piers are often reimagined as honest eateries, retaining the ambience of the area while bringing new life and a deliciously-scenic foodie hotspot.
