When the foodie gods close a door, they often open a window. Such is the case with Devon on Danks. After two years of serving up 63° eggs and 8am soft serve sundaes, the beloved Waterloo café, a spinoff of Devon Cafe in Surry Hills, ceased service in mid-September. That's the bad news. The good news is that they've now added a new member to the Devon family, with a new permanent cafe at Barangaroo.
Devon's new digs opened this week on the corner of Mercantile Walk and Scotch Row at Sydney's newest foodie Mecca. Of course, it's far from the first big gastronomic get for The Streets of Barangaroo: Anason, Belles Hot Chicken, Banksii, Lotus, Ume Burger, Rabbit Hole and RivaReno are just a few vendors that have started trading there this year. "It's where the big players are going with some great restaurants, and we felt like we are ready to take that next step," said owner Derek Puah. He also said that diners should expect something "a little different" from Devon 3.0.
Now before you start fretting, that doesn't mean they'll be ditching their signature menu items. Rather, they're adding a bunch of new strings to their bow, including Asian style tapas and Japanese katsu sandwiches. Plus, to celebrate their opening, they'll be giving away free soft serve today — Tuesday, November 15, until noon. Hop to it.
Devon Café is now open on the corner of Mercantile Walk and Scotch Row, Barangaroo. For more info, visit their Facebook page.
