Charming Cafe in the heart of Newtown
A touch of wonder, the scattered pink flamingos, inviting interiors, a cracker of a menu, an intriguing name and good service pretty much sums up my time at Cuckoo Callay. Located on the alleyway leading to Newtown station from King Street, this dog-friendly cafe is buzzing with activity at all times.

Cuckoo Callay's spectacular food menu makes one want to review it in detail to ensure nothing's been missed. There are so many good options on the quirky menu, that it was hard to just pick one. Based on their Instagram page and dishes on the other tables, it seemed to me that their toasted croissant with bacon, mac and cheese, and granola with pannacotta and poached pear were very popular that morning.

Our food and coffee arrived pretty quick and everything on the table was perfect from then on. The taste, portion size and presentation was all pretty spot on too. I will definitely commend their attention to the detail on the 2 plates of fritters on our table. Their semblance was noteworthy.

Cuckoo Callay Newtown has indoor and outdoor seating area making it friendly for fur babies as well. They also have a dog menu to cater to the fur families so no one feels left out. Pawesome! Although the interior space is limited at their Newtown location, the blue leather seating and flamingo pink column edges & cuckoo clock amplified by the mirrors on the wall provide a polished and elegant character to the cafe.

Their matcha and chai lattes are very desirable and could even top the coffee from Reformatory Lab, Surry Hills. For the slightly more adventurous, there's even a charming beetroot latte on the menu. Cuckoo Callay is proud to have a strong commitment to ethically sourced food.

Cuckoo Callay puts the spectacular back into breakfast and brunch. Check their Instagram page for more inspiration.
