On any sunny day the eastern suburbs is full of beautiful people, locals and tourists in cafes sipping a latte or macchiato. Visit hilly Bronte and enjoy the quiet and relaxed village and community feel, its café scene and picturesque beach with stunning views.
As we eat our way around the various neighbourhoods, you will be introduced to artesian bread, detox cleanses, truffles, caviar and hard to find elegance that is waiting to delight you. Each venue welcomes you with their generous offerings as you travel in air-conditioned modern small group vehicles that will drop you off at your city hotel or convenient city location at the end of the tour.
Discover the appealing architecture from Victorian cottages and terraces, Californian Bungalows, new townhouses, and plenty of apartment buildings, many dating from the late 1800’s – 1970’s. Surry Hills is one of the more colourful inner city suburbs of Sydney. It was once the domain of working class families living in small cottages, and has always had a colourful, gritty and slightly seedy edge. Share the footpath with young film makers, students, professionals, singles, families, gays and lesbians, and the alternative, arty, yoga set. The cafe scene here is big, but not pretentious.
Paddington is one of the most interesting and vibrant suburbs in Sydney. It is colourful, energetic, arty, progressive and a magnet for professionals who like designer stores. Once a rough working class suburb, Paddington has done a 180 and become the preferred home to those with money, and a penchant for style which makes it the perfect stop when we visit a brilliant cellar door hidden amongst the cluster of quaint eateries of Five Ways. This is where we learn how to match all of the fantastic food we’ve been discovering with fine wine. The fun doesn’t stop there, the tour finishes off at a restaurant where traditional Italian recipes meet the best seasonal certified organic ingredients. Sit amongst the locals in a very quaint setting as we enjoy a selection of their most popular dishes.
After you have experienced the Gourmet East tour you will realise why the locals don’t often travel west of Darlinghurst. Jaded? No. Spoiled? Yes..!! You will live it and you will love it.
