Babycinos with the kids, weekend breakfast with the family and coffee with friends just got a whole lot more interesting with the addition of heaps of new cafes, restaurants and dessert bars locally. Here’s a look at what’s opened just in the last few months:


Bare Witness

30 Shoreline Drive, Rhodes

Spacious (read pram room galore), gorgeously fitted out and set right on Parramatta River, what’s not to love about this new gem? They are also open for dinner – perfect for date night ;p

The Container (CLOSED)

3/28 Yates Ave, Dundas Valley

Fun fit out, yummy food, friendly staff and Allpress coffee. Perfecto. Did we mention it’s across the road from Dundas Park (part of the Phillip Ruddock water park)? What more could an adult and kids want?

Vagabond Gladesville



Macquarie Centre

Hide out in the Oasis that is Quell Cafe, set away from the hustle and bustle of the shops. It’s on Level 3 just past the Hot Dollar store but we have a feeling it won’t be a safe haven for long once word gets out.

Cocoa Rush Chocolate Shop & Cafe

267 Victoria Rd, Rydalmere

If the idea of handmade chocolates made on-site or a heart + hand warming “responsible” coffee doesn’t tempt you, this welcome new addition to Rydalmere also offers breakfast and lunch option to be enjoyed in their spacious industrial-style setting. Plenty of room inside and out!

Cafe Ninety5 (CLOSED)

97 Blaxland Rd, Ryde

What’s not to love about this new addition to Blaxland Road, with FREE babycinos, board games for kids and adults alike and a very cool ‘alfresco’ area that will no doubt be packed in summer. Alex, the owner, has so many great ideas he’ll be rolling out over the next few months so keep an eye out!
