Hinchcliff House's 30-seat walk-in-only bar and cafe is serving up morning coffees and afternoon cocktails.
Bar Mammoni was the final piece to join Circular Quay's expansive multi-storey venue Hinchcliff House. Located one street over from the flagship venue, Mammoni is a 30-seat cafe and bar hidden within the Quay Quarter Lanes precinct. Offering coffee in the morning, cocktails in the afternoon and snacks throughout the day, it's a day-long winner.
Items like pain au chocolat and almond croissants are baked overnight at Grana and walked across to the laneway venue each morning, where they're offered alongside breakfast options like toasted gingerbread, bacon and egg rolls 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 are always changing but have included pork, king prawn, octopus and roast fennel or stracciatella with golden bay baby beetroot and caramelised fennel. Alongside the pizza, you'll find daily salads and a whole heap of snacks. Think chicken liver parfait with pickles and charred ciabatta, Sydney rock oysters with mignonette and the Sicilian arancini of the day.
All the available eats are available for takeaway or to be enjoyed with a drink on-site, including negronis, americanos, sbagliatos, boulevardiers and spritzes.
