The Hinchcliff House Team's New Venue Bar Mammoni Is Tucked Away in Circular Quay Laneway
The small walk-in-only bar promises to be both your first and last stop of the day, serving up coffee, snacks and cocktails.

Multi-level spaces can be a thing of wonder, because after all, why have one venue when you can have four? Bar Mammoni, the newest venture to join the team behind Hinchcliff House, is a 30-seat all-day venue hidden away in a laneway behind the team's flagship multi-storey venue in Circular Quay. Offering coffees in the morning, cocktails until late and snacks throughout the day, Bar Mammoni is set to be an all-day winner.
Tucked away on Loftus Lane, Bar Mammoni offers a more casual spot to sample pastries from Grana Bakery or the cocktail creations cooked up over at Apollonia. In charge of the pastries is Jonny Pisanelli of Adelaide's acclaimed bakery Abbots and Kinney, while Head Chef Jason Duncan (ex-Charlie Parker's) has pulled together the wider food menu with help from Pisanelli.
Items like gelato millefoglie and croissant cubes are baked overnight at Grana Bakery and walked across to the laneway venue each morning where they're offered alongside breakfast options like fruit or granola bowls, morning sandwiches and toast made with Grana's signature bread. Grana and all of the Hinchcliff House venues offer up sourdough milled in-house using the building's combi mill.
Once the morning dew has settled, the lunchtime menu features pizza by the slice. The enticing toppings including pork, king prawn, octopus and roast fennel; or garlic-smoked stracciatella with truffle honey are placed on top of 72-hour fermented pizza dough that also takes advantage of Hinchcliff House's mill. Alongside the pizza, you'll find daily salads and a whole heap of snacks. Think whipped ricotta dip, garlic scallops, meatball spiedini and crumbed chicken wings.
All the available eats are on offer for takeaway, or to be enjoyed with a drink on-site. Three spritzes head up the drinks menu with a passito, a strawberry and a rosemary option. There are also negronis, americanos, sbagliatos, Hinchcliff's house-made sparkling and Bondi Small Batch pale ales.
