Mint Bar is located on the ground level of the Opal Tower in Sydney Olympic Park (Shop 2/1 Brushbox Street) and features a bright, airy and fresh vibe with floor to ceiling windows, chalkboard wall, hanging greenery, polished cement floors, and indoor and outdoor eating areas.
It was a relatively busy lunchtime the day we visited with lots of people coming and going. Mint Bar offers all day dining with Breakfast, Brunch, Lunch and now Dinner, having recently commenced trading in the evening. If woodfired pizza and boutique wines are calling your name, Mint Bar delivers all this, and more.
The venue was very kid friendly and they do have a kids menu which includes kiddie pizzas. The service was delivered with a smile and there is a good selection of food, plus an extensive bar list to please even the fussiest of drinkers.
Cocktails, Spritzers, Beer, Wine, Spirits and Champagne, the bar is well stocked. Image: Mint Bar.
The price point on the alcoholic beverages was extremely reasonable, more so than most restaurants in my opinion. They have $15 Cocktails, Summer Spritzers for $13 & $14, Beers, most at $7 and a host of Wines and top shelf Spirits. There is also NV Veuve Clicquot for $96/bottle.
It's the sort of place you can be really naughty and indulge, or really healthy with loads of good choices too. Image: Mint Bar
Fresh Juices, Smoothies and Frappe: If you are after a healthy beverage, they have a host of freshly squeezed juices at $8, Power Smoothies at $9, and some yummy Frappe. I tried the Sweet Dreams with Watermelon, Strawberry and Lychee at $8, so yum.
You will alsofind fresh juices, fruity frappe and more
The Angus Beef Burger, one of the most popular dishes, comprising of grass fed Angus beef patty, grilled smoked bacon, double cheese, lettuce, tomato, pickles, fries and a choice of sauce is one of the nicer burgers I've had and it is $17
Prosciutto Pizza. The pizzas come in two sizes, medium $18 and large $22, and it has prosciutto, cherry tomatoes, mozzarella, parmesan and rocket. They make a pretty decent woodfire pizza here and have a great selection to choose from including The Godfather, The Malibu Meddler, Gamberi, BBQ Chicken, Contadina, and so many more.
Prosciutti & Rocket Pizza is one of our favourites and it didnt disappoint even if a bit lean on the rocket component, others may like it sparse.
Desserts: The desserts were a healthy affair and we tried the GF Seed Bar at $6.50 and the Mixed Fruit and Yoghurt at $7. They were both really nice but probably more breakfast / brunchy but perfect if you want a treat that's on the healthy side.
The sweet treats were GF, Raw & Vegan and Paleo friendly
They serve St Dreux Coffee and Ovvio Tea and you can get a free Babycino with any purchase. To read more about Mint Bar, you can visit the website where you can also book a table or check out the entire menu.
