As the sun slowly rises behind the Sydney Harbour Bridge, ferry traffic starts, back and forth, as a well-orchestrated ballet. Soon, Sydneysiders are flooding Circular Quay. The ferry terminal is at its busiest and you’re sitting by the river, sipping your coffee. The Opera Kitchen terrace is the perfect place to watch the show while being served your first meal of the day, overlooking the bay and its “coat hanger,” as the locals call the Sydney Harbour Bridge.
The menu is as diverse as the Opera House program. From classical to modern, light to hearty, everything is there to suit your taste buds. All these colorful arrangements passing by are tempting you, increasing your appetite as the delicious smells follow the sights. Choices include macadamia, quinoa, and pineapple muesli, toasts with three sorts of bread (even gluten-free) with jams or the traditional vegemite, or, as breakfast is said to be the most important meal of the day, what about the “full house breakfast”? With its “smoky bacon, pork and sage sausage, roast tomato, roast mushroom, chili beans, fried eggs, sourdough” it certainly sounds like the perfect start for a great day… but the choice is yours.
Now, there you are, on the other side of the world, enjoying your “breaky” nestled under the majestic sails of this world heritage site, the Sydney Opera House. Feeling special, feeling blessed, what a treat!
Prices range from $4.50 to $16.50. Opera Kitchen is open seven days a week from “7:30 a.m. til late.”
TIP: Opera Kitchen does serve lunch and dinner and even has a good range of spirits for a drink later in the day — but if you want to beat the crowd go for breakfast!
