Breakfast may be the most important meal of the day, but bottomless brunch is the most important meal of any good weekend!
The 7 best bottomless brunches in Darling Harbour
Lucky for Sydney locals and visitors there are countless options all over the city, pairing espresso martinis and bubbles with chilli scrambled eggs and waffles. So, to help you start your weekend right we’ve rounded up the best bottomless brunches in Sydney & Darling Harbour. 

Hello Auntie

Partner or parents complaining about you going to another bottomless brunch? Just tell them you’re visiting your Auntie, grab your mates and head to Hello Auntie for their world famous (in Sydney) bottomless brunch. Feast on Vietnamese bites like angus beef tartare, or make your own rice paper rolls then wash it down with ice cold house cocktails, wines and beers. 

Blackbird Cafe

Blackbird Cafe is one of Sydney’s most iconic brunch spots and all-day eateries, with a prime position right by the harbour on Cockle Bay Wharf. They also happen to serve one of Darling Harbour and Sydney’s best bottomless brunches. Available Friday to Sunday, from 11:30 am, the brunch includes a selection of bites, from garlic and mozzarella pizzas and salt to pepper calamari. To drink there are Aperol spritzes, prosecco, mimosas, wines and more. 

Cafe del Mar

Transport yourself to Ibiza without leaving Sydney, on the sundrenched terrace of Cafe del Mar. At their bottomless long lunch you can expect panoramic views of Darling Harbour, an elevated three-course menu of sharing tapas, plus two hours of cocktails and ice cold beverages for just $99. 

Darling Pavilion

Add a dash of Sydney sizzle and Mediterranean luxe and you’ve got Darling Pavilion, a new eatery and bar overlooking Tumbalong Park. Recline in the sun on one of their many outdoor tables and grab a bottomless brunch, available every Saturday and Sunday. Expect a delicious sharing menu, plus two hours of drinks including the famous Altos margarita. 

Helm Bar

Bottomless brunches are best served harbourside with 180° water views and a buzzing atmosphere. That’s exactly what you’ll find at Helm. Their premium bottomless brunch is available Saturdays and Sundays and features three courses, including dishes like Sydney rock oysters and fresh lobster sliders. Drinks include wine, tap beer and sparkling - or you can pay a little extra and upgrade to bottomless margaritas, or bottomless Moët (go on, treat yourself). 

Fratelli Fresh

Fratelli Fresh is our favourite local Italian spot, serving up woodfired pizzas and perfectly prepared pastas. Their Festa Italiana bottomless lunch is a party Roma style, with two hours of espresso martinis, Aperol Spritz, wine and beer alongside a 3-course Italian-style share menu. Deliziosa!

Mecca Bah

A splash away from the water on King Street Wharf you’ll find Mecca Bah, a Middle Eastern & Mediterranean eatery that serves one of Sydney’s best tagines. Our advice? Come Saturday or Sunday, reserve a table in their waterfront courtyard in the shade of a fig tree and indulge in their bottomless brunch. It features hummus & baba ganoush served with toasted turkish bread, lamb sigara boureks and a selection of crafted cocktails, from gin spritz, to mimosas and a Turkish delight martini.
