Cafe culture in chic Paddington: eat and drink like a local


4 hours | from AUD175.00 pp

So do like the fashionable locals do and lazily wine and dine your way along the patios and terraces of this gourmet enclave, tasting flavours from Australia’s global melting pot of cuisines. From Syria to Greece, Lebanon to Indonesia, Vietnam to France and everywhere in between, you’ll find authentic flavours from every continent proudly served up the cafes and restaurants which mingle alongside fashionable boutiques. So embrace the laid-back cafe culture and meander through Paddington, stopping to peruse boutiques and eat at three different restaurants where you’ll try a delicious dish paired with the perfect Australian wine.

What you'll do

Experience Paddington exactly how it’s supposed to be, by wining and dining your way along the cafes, wine bars and restaurants of its tree lined avenues and distinctly Victorian buildings. Read more +

Discover Sydney’s laid back cafe culture; whiling away a few hours on the patio or terrace of a sidewalk cafe as you sip a glass of regional wine and feast on a delicious plate of a cuisine from a far-flung corner of the globe. 

Your local will take you to three different cafes or restaurants where you can taste some of the incredibly diverse cuisine that this gourmet neighbourhood offers, as well as recommending the perfect Australian wine to accompany each dish. 

Stroll through the neighbourhood between each gourmet stop, pausing to browse in independent boutiques and stylish stores, seeing the neighbourhood through the eyes of its fashionable locals and soaking up the vibe in everyone’s favourite foodie precinct. 

Each and every cafe will transport you to a different part of the world, such is the beauty of Sydney’s multi-cultural cuisine! Perhaps stop by a Greek terrace and indulge in pistachio pastries dripping with honey, feast on Lebanese mezze boards, share some impossibly thin Italian pizzas, discover the flavours of Syria, savour Peruvian ceviche or be transported to the backstreets of Tokyo as you nibble some gyoza. In Paddington, the world really is your oyster!

Your local will recommend a wine pairing to accompany each dish you try, so you can discover the distinct flavours of Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Semillon and Chardonnay. 

Soak up the vibe of the neighbourhood as you take the time to leisurely enjoy each dish, appreciate your surroundings and visit hip cafes and bars where tables spill out onto the sidewalk and you can sip, eat and people watch as you discover the best of Sydney’s multi-cultural cuisine!
