Taking over a beloved corner of Llewellyn Street, White Rabbit has brought a commitment to high-quality artisan goods to the former home of West Juliett. The longstanding Marrickville favourite closed down without warning in mid-2022 — but when one door closes, another opens.

This is the fourth outpost for White Rabbit, with its Marrickville iteration joining spots in Drummoyne, Double Bay and Kiaora Lane. The group of cafes looks to bring together top-quality local suppliers, helping to expand their reach.

That's exactly what you'll find at the Marrickville venue, with Sonoma Bakery's bread and baked goods, Goose Bakery's pastries, Pepe Saya butter and The Little Marionette coffee all featured on the menu.

Outside of Sonoma's loaves, plus Goose's dark chocolate and sea salt cookies, there's a menu of hefty cafe classics. Highlights from the all-day breakfast menu include XO chilli scrambled eggs with mushrooms, fried shallots and sourdough; sweet corn and zucchini fritters topped with avocado salsa, halloumi, chickpea hummus and chilli oil; and a classic bangers and beans big brekkie, featuring braised cannellini beans, 'nduja, pork and fennel sausages, pork belly, potato, fried eggs and toast.

Later in the day, you can turn your attention to the lunch menu, which is headlined by a fresh tuna ceviche bowl packed with zucchini and carrot noodles, brown rice, avocado, edamame, wakame, oxheart tomato, white miso and ginger; and a loaded parmesan and herb-crumbed chicken sandwich on toasted Sonoma sourdough.

The White Rabbit team has made the most of the building, keeping the bright white aesthetic of West Juliett while shaping the space into a takeaway bakery and 100-seat cafe with both indoor and al fresco dining.
