UPDATE: SEPTEMBER 25, 2018 — We hope you're not gluten-intolerant, because Devon is launching the ultimate carb-on-carb sando. The cafe is teaming up with instant noodle brand Indomie for the sandwich of your late-night snack dreams. Two pieces of de-crusted white bread will hold a serve of mi goreng, turmeric fried chicken, cheese, lettuce, tomato, cucumber and a fried egg, along with a saucy mess of sambal and sweet soy. It'll be available at all Devon cafes — Barangaroo, North Sydney and Surry Hills — from October 1 for the whole month, along with a fried mi goreng banana fritter dessert.
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-degree eggs and 8am soft serve sundaes, the beloved Waterloo café — a spinoff of Devon Cafe in Surry Hills — ceased service in 2016. That's the bad news. The good news is that they added a new member to the Devon family, in Barangaroo.
Devon's second digs are located on the corner of Mercantile Walk and Scotch Row at one of Sydney's new food hubs, The Streets of Barangaroo. Of course, it's far from the first big gastronomic get — Anason, Belles Hot Chicken, Banksii, Ume Burger and Rabbit Hole are just a few vendors that are trading in the precinct.
Now before you start fretting, that doesn't mean the cafe has ditched its signature menu items — the soft serve with fries and miso salmon with a 63-degree egg remain on the menu. Rather, it's added a bunch of new strings to their bow, including Asian-style tapas and Japanese katsu sandwiches.
