5 Unique places you shouldn’t miss when in Redfern

Redfern is a fun and buzzing suburb and there are many great gastronomical treasures that are a must see. We highlight some of them.

Scouts Honour

Tucked away on a Redfern side street is Scouts Honor. Voted one of the best sandwich spots in Sydney with their chicken & chips sando (“crisps” inside the sandwich and not on the side) on thick slices of brickfields sourdough. Get yours take away and served with a piece of fruit on the side like the perfect school lunch. Go check out their other menu offerings like the tuna melt toastie or their Roast Cauliflower Salads. (Menu changes, to keep things interesting) Open for breakfast and lunch Monday — Saturdays.

Situated on a sunny corner of Redfern, duck your head into Breadfern bakery for all your flaky almond croissant, ricotta and sour cherry danish, babka and gingerbread man needs.

From the 6th of Jan till the end of the month, they are serving up Galette Des Rois, the French King Cake. Each cake comes with a crown and a trinket. The one to eat the slice with the Feve wears the crown is treated as king or queen for the day.

Otherwise, grab a loaf of their 18hr fermented sourdough or a pie from the hot case, pull up a milk crate out front and enjoy your flaky baked goods. Let’s be honest, the temptation is real!

Happy D’s

Dumplings, beers and good vibes. Think 90’s Chinese restaurant fish tank, live DJ station but with an impressive range of Japanese Whiskies and craft beers. Dry white’s and light reds, Jalapenos & Lime Margaritas. Happy D’s Dumpling Bar will get you pumped up with fun drinks and groovy tunes before a night out on the town.

Cafe Ortanek

It looks like Redfern is one of the best suburbs for a tasty sambo. Cafe Ortanek is making a pork katsu sandwich that I’ve only dreamed of.

Owner and chef was the former Head Chef of Bills in Darlinghurst, makes everything in house except their coffee which is supplied by Sonoma. His food is a gentle twist of Australian with an asian influence. The cafe is open for breakfast and lunch all 7 days of the week, using only seasonal and locally sourced produce.

Kepos Street Kitchen

Modern Israeli food is nothing new to the Sydney folks. And one of the better known ones is Kepos Street Kitchen They have kept their doors open and kept us fed during the holiday season with Sabich Pita, shakshukas, zucchini fritters and meatball subs. This place is an absolute institution, which is why we must continue to support them to ensure we can keep eating their yummy yummy food. And if you really really like the food (and we are sure you will) you can grab a copy of their cookbooks on the way out. They don’t take bookings, walk-in only from 8am — 3pm, 7 days a week.
