Overview

Michael Mu Sung has taken over lower-Bayswater Road. Not content with two beloved venues on the Potts Point thoroughfare, the Sydney restaurateur sprung forth with his third addition to the neighbourhood called Ken's Continental.

This cafe and deli is located on a green leafy corner directly next to Mu Sung's Farmhouse and across the road from his second culinary child, Bones Ramen.

Ken's Continental operates as a classic inner-city cafe in the morning with good coffee and a daily delivery of elite pastries from LouLou Boulangerie. If you're looking to nab a seat and get stuck into the day with something more substantial, you'll find a menu of brunch and lunch favourites centred around speciality deli meats.

The short and sweet menu of all-day breakfast consists of sandwiches and highlights from the deli like the breakfast muffin which combines folded eggs, gruyere and chorizo from Whole Beast Butchery. Beyond breakfast, the signature sambo piles mortadella, rocket, pickled Turkish chillies and plum relish on a LouLou baguette.

There's also yellow pea pancakes topped with soft-boiled eggs, herb salad, avocado and jamon; black pudding with fried eggs; and a charcuterie plate with the best meat, cheese, pickles and olives from the deli counter.

Speaking of, this open glass counter is the first thing you'll notice as you walk into the Parisian-inspired space, accompanied by shelves of other take-home provisions on the walls. Here you can load up your home kitchen with all of the pancetta, sopressa, terrine, Pepe Saya butter and fresh baguettes you could wish for.
