After carving out a name for itself over five years on Oxford Street, beloved Darlinghurst cafe Sandoitchi is set to expand its reach over Sydney with a second outpost — this time, bringing its fluffy Japanese-style sandwiches to Chatswood.

Sandoitchi 2.0 is set to open in Chatswood Chase in February this year, bringing all the treasured menu items of the original cafe to the Lower North Shore.

If you've never visited Sandoitchi, you're missing out. It's currently ranked number one on our list of the best cafes in Sydney thanks to its next-level sandwiches, top-notch coffee and friendly staff.

The must-try menu item is the prawn and sweet corn sando — featuring a creamy crumbed pattie of whole prawns and corn, topped with yuzu mayonnaise and mustard, and placed between two of the most cloud-like pieces of white bread you could imagine. There's also a wildly popular crispy fried chicken number, an incredible luxe wagyu sando, and a sweet treat filled with fruit and cream.

And, it doesn't stop at sandwiches, with teriyaki salmon and pork katsu among the selection of rice or noodle bowls on offer, as well as bacon and egg rolls, eggs on toast, justices, smoothies and chai.

"It has always been our dream to introduce Japanese sandwiches to everyone in Sydney," says the Sandoitchi crew.

There's not too much more information available on the new opening, but you can follow along with updates on the Chatswood Sandoitchi via the cafe's Instagram account.

Sandoitchi is located at 3/113–115 Oxford Street, Darlinghurst. The cafe and sandwich shop's second outpost will open at Chatswood Chase in February 2024. Browse the menu and order online at the cafe's website.
