Burnt Orange has a fascinating history. It was originally a golf club, then it was converted into a clubhouse during the Second World War for the army stationed at the nearby barracks. Now, it's a cafe, boutique shop, and one of the best places to come for high tea in Sydney.

Bring your loved ones for macarons, Belgian chocolate mousse and house-made scones with jam and cream — all with incredible harbour views. And if high tea isn't your jam, Burnt Orange also dishes up top-tier breakfast and lunch dishes.

Other favourites on the lunch menu include the Green Goddess salad; a Thai fish pie with scallops, salmon, makrut lime and coconut; a wagyu beef burger with Swiss cheese and spinach artichoke; and a free-range pork tenderloin served with broccolini and pickled blackberry.

Its dessert menu includes a baked lemon cheesecake with yoghurt foam and a mandarin curd tart with torched meringue. If all this has you feeling thirsty, then try one of its classic cocktails, including the Hemingway daiquiri, the lemon drop or the rum sour.
