Cronuts make their mark on Sydney


What do Sydney locals love to do on the weekends?

During winter, Sydney locals tend to rug up and try a new delicious cafe which serves late breakfast or brunch on the weekends.

For our first post we thought where better to start than breakfast. We have found the perfect place for you to experience Sydney just like a local!

John Smith Cafe

John Smith Café is located in Waterloo which is only a 6-7 minute drive or a 25 minute walk (only 2.0km) from Mercure Sydney.This relatively new cafe opened in May and is bustling with Sydney locals each weekend who are wanting to try the delectable treats.

Best Coffee in Sydney

The coffee is tried and tested each morning by the owners to ensure that it is made with love and to perfection just the way YOU like it.

As you walk through this quirky café you will feast your eyes on the delicious fresh cronuts in the middle of this café.

What is a cronut you ask? Well, for all you sweet tooths out there, prepare to transport yourself to your new haven. A cronut is a croissant-doughnut pastry which melts in your mouth almost instantly! John Smith Café has three delicious flavours to choose from (we are sure you won’t stop at one) which are glazed cronuts (think Krispy Kreme but even better), cinnamon cronuts or chocolate cronuts topped with praline.

It doesn’t stop there. The mouth-watering menu will leave you day-dreaming for months. You find yourself excited by the prospect of someone walking out of the kitchen area and praying that the meal is yours each time they walk past.

Whether it is the eggs benedict with pulled pork or the ploughman’s board (which consists of a selection of cheese, cold poached eggs, cold meats, pickles, relish and homemade beans) we are sure you won’t be disappointed at this café.
