While there are ample sun-soaked venues around Sydney where a quick dip or a leisurely long lunch are top of the menu, you won't find another quite like this. Situated neatly beside the iconic Andrew (Boy) Charlton Pool is this cheerful eatery offering poolside dining with waterfront views.

Following a hefty makeover, Oh Boy Cafe has returned for the sunny season, complete with a crowd-pleasing menu and a modern coastal-inspired space. The eatery follows the ethos of "good food, good stories, good times, by the water" and provides a fitting accompaniment for a pre- or post-dip bite.

Oh Boy has a modern casual feel with white and terracotta tones pairing beautifully with the crystal blue waters of the neighbouring pool and, beyond that, the harbour.

The menu is stacked with breakfast classics, including a great egg and bacon roll, an accumulation of all the fry-up favourites called the Bear Breakfast, and a chickpea breakfast bowl among the vegetarian options. For lunch, have your fill of dishes like the spaghetti and cuttlefish ragu, or opt for familiar favourites like an Angus steak sando or a crumbed chicken schnitty.

For summer spritzes in the sun, Oh Boy Café also offers a boozy bottomless brunch. Available Friday–Sunday, you can enjoy two hours of free-flowing mimosas, sparkling wine and rosé alongside a selection of choice dishes from the menu for $78 per person.

Plus, the cafe can easily be transformed to host private events of up to 30 people, an option which is available from 7am til 11:30pm daily.

Pair the scenes of Wool­loomooloo Bay with Oh Boy Cafe's playful menu, and you've secured yourself the perfect summer spot.
