Dear friends, it is with sadness that we close our doors today.
Throughout the last 21 years, we have had the honour to nurture, serve and embrace our team, guests, vibrant Sydneysiders, the broader global community and valued suppliers who are all our glorious Cafe Sydney family.
This decision has been made in the interest of our collective health and safety, as well as, with the objective of expediating the current worldwide situation.
Our arms are wrapped around our team with gratitude always and particularly at this time.
We are optimistic this universal challenge will pass swiftly, and we look forward with great anticipation to reopen and welcome you with our familiar quality of service.
For the time being, we will share with you, via social media and our monthly newsletter, images of inspiration, recipes to try at home and a familiar voice in a time that is very unfamiliar to us all.
The sun will shine on our terrace again, and we hope to see you there when it does,
Love Jan, Todd, James and the team at Cafe Sydney.

At present, Cafe Sydney will not open until late June / early July, as we must await the NSW Premier’s announcement of Step 3 in the government’s plan to ease Coronavirus restrictions, allowing for greater numbers.
We have been inundated and delighted with your enthusiasm, however with the current guest limitation, this is not viable for us.
It has been quiet on the terrace without you, we look forward to the sound of Champagne popping, the buzz of friends, colleagues and families occupying our convivial restaurant.
We are extremely fortunate with our gorgeous, spacious restaurant, which is the perfect location for social distance dining.
We are longing to welcome you soon at Cafe Sydney.
