First Drop Cafe Marrickville
Marrickville has welcomed an inner city stalwart into the fold.
September 01, 2023
We've got two words for you: burrata sandwich. If you're not in the camp of the creamy mozzarella cheese being overrated (or at least overexposed), this should be reason enough to visit First Drop's new Marrickville digs. The burrata is served on your choice of focaccia, bagel or wrap with prosciutto, rocket and caramelised balsamic.
Other options on the deli sambo lineup include a wagyu reuben, panko chicken with wasabi mayo or the Super Deli, loaded with LP's salami, smoked mortadella, prosciutto, leg ham, provolone and salad. Elsewhere on the menu, you'll find hearty salads, burgers, spanakopita, chicken souvlaki and homemade beans.
The latter is considered a "First Drop classic", having featured on the menu since the OG cafe first opened in Redfern in 2003. Twenty years on, owners Michael Savvakis and Christopher Hing have ventured into the Inner West for their second location, specifically on the ground floor of a new commercial building near the Metro.
Kiara Gualtieri has been brought on to run the kitchen at the new digs, which also features a large patio area. The venue is available for functions and catering, too.
