Offering cafe food with an interesting menu, BTB are filling a gap in the market by offering dishes that are focused on the use of native Australian ingredients. Located in the stunning Harbourside suburb of Kirribilli just below the Sydney Harbour Bridge, hence ‘BTB’. Most of the seating is inside in a darkened space but full of customers happily enjoying their brekkie. We sit outside with our pram and puppy and efficiently served but the fun and friendly staff.
We’ve visited twice in the last month, wanting to try as many things as possible! Our first dish was the Warrigal falafels, which were super moist inside with a nice crunchy exterior, served with native zaatar, lemon aspen yoghurt, heirloom tomato salad and Warrigal greens. Oh and don’t forget to order a side of potato scallops with malt vinegar.
Another standout dish is the native cured salmon – with lemon aspen 🍋 mixed grains, macadamia miso cucumber 🥒 Myrtle cured radish, wakame raw greens, salt bush furikame and finger lime. This was so delicious, the seafood perfectly cured. It also looked stunning.
For a sweet option, there’s a vegan dish – Cherry ripe granola – dried cherry and cacao nib, coconut, wattleseed yoghurt, rosella glazed cherry jelly and granita. A great option on those hot days too.
On one of our visits there was an amazing special which was an absolutely cracker. The Duck hashbrown was nice and crispy and came served with a duck egg, sautéed Warrigals, Davidson Plum Chilli Jam and sea spray! Should be there permanently.
Coffee wise, their specialty coffee is by coffee supreme and there’s your favourite milk based, Filter, batch brew as well as cascara, chai, kombucha, fresh juice and smoothies.
We loved our visits and thoroughly recommend BTB for excellent food and specialty coffee.
