A cafe and a wine bar in a touch of Euro-style
Located on the ground level of the new QT Sydney boutique hotel, Parlour Lane Roasters is a Euro-style cafe and a wine bar.
Upon stepping in the place, I felt like I was in the art gallery. Lining up in the centre, you'll find installations of beautiful costumes and interesting items in a few hexagonal display cases. Small tables are set up in between, offering you a bit of privacy when chatting with your friends.
Surrounded by neighbouring Topshop and State Threatre, this cafe and wine bar is a great spot for lunch or sweets after shopping, or late afternoon aperitivo before the show. Interestingly, when you look up the decorative ceilings, you'll find that they echo the beauty of the neighbouring iconic State Theatre.
The menu is quite diverse, including sandwiches, pastry, sweets, bar food, and a wide array of wine choices. I ordered Italian brekkie focaccia for my bunch; the serving was generous ($9), with eggs, pancetta, tomatoes and Basil as ingredients. The dish was delivered fresh and it's absolutely good value for money judging from the food quality and the ambience. The coffee was fairly good, complementing well with the Italian food.
