Swap your sad desk sandwich for a fresh creation from this cute carb-loving cafe wedged within Wynyard Station.
May 03, 2023
June in Sydney is all about the Winter Solstice, Vivid lights and an epic all-day sandwich menu where bread is boss. To avoid confusion allow us a moment to clarify. While the first two examples obviously allude to the kind of mid-year milestones you mark on your calendar, the latter refers to June's Shoppe — a cute cafe located within Sydney's Wynyard Precinct which happens to share its name with the sixth month of the year.
However, in contrast to the chilly weather typically expected at this time, June's is a sunny, bright yellow hole-in-the-wall that serves up morning coffees, tasty pastries and takeaway lunch items, such as salads, soups and sandwiches.
Speaking of the aforementioned sambos, June's is committed to the carb-cause with its all-day sandwich menu curated by Culinary Director of Applejack Hospitality Group Patrick Friesen.
With a menu inspired by Tokyo's iconic King George deli, loaf-lovers can expect thick doorstep sandwiches packed to the brim with fresh fillings and even fresher made-on-site sauces.
Our picks include the fennel pork ($18) with pesto, pickled chillies, provolone and crunchy rapini, the spicy fried chicken sandwich ($20) drenched in comeback sauce and the tuna salad ($18) option which swaps out the canned variety for chunky tartare, paired with cucumber, radish and rocket.
Plant-based peeps will also be pretty pleased with the options on offer, which include the mushroom melt ($18) made with mixed mushies, spinach and a triple-threat cheese combo of provolone, vintage cheddar and mozzarella; the kick-heavy spiced sweet potato salad ($18); and the classic salad sambo ($18) crammed with cucumber, tomato, beetroot, carrots, alfalfa, monster mayo and vintage cheddar.
While the sandwiches are the star of the show here, spare a moment for the supporting acts including top-notch coffee ($4.20–5.70) made with Gabriel beans, flaky almond croissants and turmeric lattes ($5–6).
