Seeking great Pymble cafes and restaurants, or the coffee spots in the surrounding suburbs of Turramurra, Gordon, St Ives and Wahroonga? Here’s a selection of the best cafes and dining options in the Pymble area …
Brick Lane Espresso
Shop 21, Philip Mall, West Pymble
Ph (02) 9498 5440
Brick Lane Espresso’s catch cry is the “friendliest cafe on the North Shore”. Serving quality coffee and wholesome modern Australian food, they’re open for breakfast and lunch every day. They genuinely love to get to know you and believe in personable, relaxed and friendly service. Have ample indoor and outdoor seating, a fenced playground within sight and plenty of free parking. “Consistently good coffee. This is a gem. Great service, friendly staff. It’s also nice to be somewhere on the North Shore but not on a major road. Brick Lane is in a rare pedestrian mall so there’s seating inside and out and a playground for kids.” Brick Lane Espresso is now run by Nick Maoudis, formerly head chef of Burnt Orange in Mosman, Indigo Double Bay and The Olive Kitchen in Breakfast Point, along with his cousins Nick and Peter Vasili. “Excellent local cafe, great village atmosphere. Been here a number of times now: the coffee is always excellent, the service prompt and friendly and the menu more interesting and varied than a normal local cafe. Highly recommended!”
The Sawmill Italian Cafe & Restaurant
7 Duneba Ave, West Pymble
Ph (02) 9498 6565
The Sawmill Cafe, Restaurant & Pizzeria pays homage to the history of the Pymble area via the use of natural and recycled timber throughout its space. Pymble and its surrounding areas was once a major supplier of timber to the early Sydney colony. True also to its Italian tradition, the Sawmill maintains a feeling of warmth in the food lovingly prepared and served from the freshest of produce, as well as their warm-hearted service which ensures diners feel very comfortable. Much recommended in the evenings are their wood-fired pizzas. “Absolutely amazing. We had driven 13 hours from Queensland and arrived almost on closing. The staff tailored food to what they could do and served us with professionalism and a warmth you only see in the best restaurants. Absolutely fantastic, we will be back!” – Kieran.
