Bottomless brunches make an occasion out of an otherwise ordinary brunch. You might dress up a little more, eat and drink more and spend a lot longer at the table than you usually would.
Fortunately, when it comes to bottomless brunches, Sydneysiders are spoilt for choice. Whatever food you’re craving — Mexican, Italian, modern Australia — a Sydney brunch has got it. Ahead, we share some of our favourite spots across the city to properly do Sydney bottomless brunch.
Rocker, North Bondi
Rocker sits at the North Bondi Shops area, at the top of Campbell Parade. Its $85pp bottomless brunch is available Thursdays to Sundays across three sitting times, 11:30am, 1:45pm and 4pm. You and someone else or a group will share the likes of shaved prosciutto over melon, housemade focaccia and rigatoni with slow-braised beef cheek ragu.
Dead Ringer, Surry Hills
Dead Ringer occupies a heritage townhouse in Surry Hills. Every Saturday to Sunday from 11am, it serves a set long lunch menu that’s $45pp with an additional $45 giving a house aperitif on arrival and free-flowing wine with your meal.
