Sydney NSW - Christmas Time
Palomino Cafe along York Street near Wynyard Park has an extensive menu but really good coffee options.
Thier neighbour is a business rival - a cafe called Loaf & Devotion.
Prawn flavoured stock soup with Hokkien noodles, spinach and hard boiled egg at the Malay Chinese Takeaway, Hunter Street.
Soothing candles greet guests at the entrance to La Rosa, serving unique Italian inspired dishes with a wine bar at the top floor of the Strand Arcade. Personally I found no fault with their pig trotters, sans claws and bones, presented beautifully in a tender package and bathed with tomato based gravy.
The Circa Cafe in Parramatta at 21 Wentworth Street is tucked away in a hidden corner not far from the rail station and is popular with Gen Y all huddled on low chairs and tables in what seems to be a dingy street scene joint. below, the Strand Arcade between Wynyard and Town Hall sections of Sydney and leading to either a main thoroughfare of George Street or the Pitt Street Mall.
