The Devon crew is plating up its decadent breakfast items and katsu sandos in Barangaroo.
UPDATE: JANUARY 15, 2019 — Summer in Sydney means many things — beach hangs, ocean pool swims, searing heat — one of them being the abundance of sweet frozen treats. And Devon has just launched another one for you to put on high rotation: bubble tea sundaes. Tapioca pearls, soft serve, taro and bubur cha-cha combine in this limited-edition dessert. Flavours include Matcha Bubble Tea, with roasted green tea, herbal glass jelly and sweet red bean and cheese foam, and the Bobba Gump, with milk tea soft serve, salted milk foam and brownie soil. All are served with a waffle cone and will set you back $10 a pop. They're available at Devon Barangaroo and North Sydney (not Surry Hills) from now until Thursday, February 28.
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.
