We didn't want to eat at the hotel buffet so had pre-planned a few places just in case, and seeing we were headed to Hyde Park for the Sydney Festival the Hyde Park Barracks Cafe seemed like a good option. The Hyde Park Barracks was built in 1819 to house convict men and boys.
We didn't check the opening times so I think we were lucky they were open at 9 am on this particular Sunday (then menu stated 10 am for Sundays so check before you come).
Cafe Latte $4.40
Blueberry and white chocolate hot cakes, served with lemon posset and vanilla ice cream $15
An interesting combination of flavours that worked really well
Eggs Benedict with smoked salmon and avocado on a toasted ciabatta $17.50
with a side of Potato hash $3
The Eggs Benedict was wonderful, but it didn't really need the side of potato hash (which wasn't that good)
