Best Fine Dining Cafe in Surry Hills
Since my good friend work in Surry Hills, we always attempt to try something different and something new for our catch-ups. There is a little unpretentious fine-dining cafe in Surry Hills and all foodie circles are raving about it.
If you think you will experience another cafe breakfast, think again.
I will be upfront, Devon Cafe is not definitely not your typical Surry Hills/inner west cafe despite the fierce amount of competition in the Sydney breakfast/brunch scene. It is the town's new favourite star cafe, and justifiably so.
We arrive early but the place is already 90% occupied with keen diners. There is an nice cosy backyard to enjoy your meal.
We sit at the front section of the cafe where there is a lots of natural light with a minimalist Scandinavian decos. You know Devon Cafe is serious about their coffee when you see a large drip-coffee instrument placed at the centre of the communal table.
I couldn't resist ordering the limited edition Breakfast with the Sakuma's ($24.50). It is essentially a miso grilled king salmon, served with a smoked eel croquette, 63' egg and a refreshing radish petite salad with kewpie mayonnaise on the side.
This is definitely not your typical breakfast, rather it is quite an upscale spectacular dish, a regal breakfast fit for a king. The dish is elegant, delicious and perfect to have on a good sunny day. Just cut through that 63' egg and watch the golden runny yolk flow over the perfectly grilled miso salmon - it is pure magic in the making.
Based on this meal, I would say Devon Café ranks firmly in my top three places for breakfast in Sydney. It is slightly pricey for Surry Hills (probably not a place to go everyday) but I am keen to return and try their other fine seasonal creations.
