If you're looking for a way to cheer up your working week in the CBD, pop into June's Shoppe. The newest addition to Applejack Hospitality's portfolio, this bright yellow cafe is all about putting a little sunshine into your day — and it's located in the same Carrington Street precinct as the company's other recent newcomer, Bopp and Tone.
Where so many of Sydney's cafes take themselves pretty seriously, June's Shoppe is focused on fun. You can count on friendly staff and a simple yet tasty menu. Think pastries, toast and toppers, aka open sandwiches with all kinds of toppings. These take inspiration from the cafe's namesake, June Adams — the late wife of Anthony 'Tone' Adams, the grandfather of an Applejack co-founder.
At brekkie, fuel up with the Top of the B&E — a mountain of fried egg, maple bacon, barbecue sauce and red Leicester cheese. Then, come lunch, tuck into a feast of wagyu bresaola, Branston pickle, rocket, hot mustard sour cream and ricotta salata. If you're looking for a sugar hit, there's the Nutella banana bread, loaded with the obvious spread, plus banana, spiced strawberry sauce and caramel popcorn.
As for the coffee, it's a quality blend from Gabriel Roasters. Tea, chai, kombucha, cold-pressed juices and coconut waters are also on the menu.
