Sydney Cafes | Cafe Oratnek

This hidden gem in Redfern is well worth a visit, but be warned if you are going on a weekend you may need to wait a while for a table because of it's popularity. Seating is inside and outside and when I visited it was a pleasant way to spend an hour. I think it's a good sign when a cafe has people lining up to get inside!

I opted for the salt and pepper soft shell crab burger and clearly my eyes are bigger than my stomach because I couldn't finish it, not because it didn't taste great, it's a big serve and the chips were fantastic.

The cafe is soon to expand to offer dinner so I'll be posting about that soon.
