Cuisine: Modern Australian,Italian

This versatile, stylish and comfortable place in one of Sydney’s most surprisingly attractive residential developments is what the Italians call a gastronomia: you can eat here from breakfast to dinner, come in for coffee and cakes or gelato, and buy wine, bread (house-baked), coffee, groceries et cetera. Everything about it is as Italian as Armani and we love it. At breakfast, opt for the pastries (made on site) and espresso or tuck into a Roman Emperor’s breakfast $17.50 for the lot (all eggs used are free range and organic). At lunch, a simple calamari griglia $20 with a glass of pinot grigio will do the trick. Prices hike to around the $30 mark at dinner but there’s pizza $13–$17 and a reasonably priced misto di mare for one $39.

Cuisine: Modern Australian,Italian,Indian,Pakistani,Sri Lankan

A top favourite Cheap Eat for the lover of fiery Southern Indian and Sri Lankan food, Janani makes everything on the premises. String hoppers $2.50–$5 (small mats of steamed thin rice flour noodles) and delicious idlis $5 (soft cakes of fermented black lentils and riceflour) are a traditional breakfast in these parts but eat ’em when you feel like it. There are lamb patties $3 and the monster seafood meal of rice, fish or prawn, calamari and crab $12.50 is amazing value. You have to finish with the creme brulee-style traditional dessert, wattalapam $4, dark and delicious with cashews. And don’t grumble at having to eat off stainless-steel plates and possibly sip your BYO from tumblers — it’s part of the experience.
