5 Loaves 2 Fish (5L2F to the cool kids) dishes up wholesome breakfasts, lunches and desserts until 4pm each day from its light, airy Neutral Bay space. The minimalist space — with white painted brick walls and greenery hanging from the ceiling — mimics the menu that celebrates punchy flavours with a clean-eating lens.
Here, you can expect cafe classics with a twist — think scrambled eggs with XO sauce, blue swimmer crab and Korean chilli oil on Brickfields sourdough or corn fritters, with a turmeric kick, served with grilled halloumi, avo, smoked salmon and a poached egg. If you fancy something light and fresh, opt for one of the delectable salads, like the poke bowl with ponzu cured salmon, super grains, heirloom tomatoes and edamame or slow-roasted cauliflower and chickpea bowl with sweet potato tahini. The speciality coffees are praised by diners, so be sure to order one — dining at home means you can even decant it into your favourite mug.
