If your breakfast game is in need of a little shake-up, you'll find yourself in excellent hands at Pyrmont newcomer Quick Brown Fox Eatery. The latest venture from sibling duo Ben and Emily Calabro, the cafe boasts a standout food offering designed by consulting chef Tomislav Martinovic (who used to work at Heston Blumenthal's three Michelin-starred The Fat Duck) and brought to life by Head Chef Kido Kwon (Buena Vista Hotel, Bondi Hardware).

Promising to infuse Sydney's cafe scene with some fresh ideas, the eatery is dishing up tried-and-true classics alongside a slew of crafty, contemporary creations. Many ingredients are made in-house, too, while the remainder are sourced locally.

An all-day breakfast menu features considered dishes like the Ottoman Eggs, which are baked with four-hour braised beef cheek ragu ($16), and a congee of Koshihikari rice that's finished with a chilli fried egg, thick-cut maple-glazed bacon, enoki mushrooms, grilled cabbage and chilli relish ($16). Even the standard smashed avo has been reimagined, here with a soft-boiled egg, Nonie's charcoal gluten-free toast, chilli labneh and salsa verde ($14).

At lunch, you'll sit down to the likes of an impressive quinoa-fried chicken and bacon burger with hand-cut chips ($20), or a roast cauliflower salad teaming roasted pumpkin, freekeh, feta, pomegranate and almond dukkah ($16).

Coffee comes courtesy of Sydney's Single O, and, once the liquor licence comes through in a few weeks time, you'll also have a choice of brunch cocktails (espresso martinis, bloody marys and mimosas) and a compact list of 100 percent Aussie wines.
