Big Tree House Cafe, Rydalmere NSW
The yummy Eggs Benni for breakky.
It is a delightful to find a city centre styled cafe in the north-western Sydney suburbs. Vehicle parking is much easier, the Opal card relevant bus from both Parramatta and Eastwood does pass by on the adjoining Park Road (but alas only on weekdays) and there is a train station at Dundas (but on the much maligned City Rail Carlingford line, with not very regular trains and the need to change at Clyde).
Putting all these minor transport irritations aside, I reckon the Big Tree House is a gem of a place, with a relaxed atmosphere, tree lined roads, friendly staff, Campos coffee and a variety of creative menu items for breakfast, brunch and lunch. The setting is residential but the mood can be hipster in an area bound by Kissing Point and Victoria Roads. My experience there has been its popularity with youngsters, families, hipsters, trades, business twosomes, women's groups, mates and dates.
