Pyrmont is another area close to the Sydney CBD where you will find a pocket of cafes and restaurants.
Pyrmont is about 2 kilometres south-west of the CBD and backs onto Darling Harbour. In fact, it is part of the Darling Harbour region and one of the closest residential areas to the CBD. It's close proximity to the Sydney financial district makes it popular with people who want to work, live and eat in the heart of Sydney.
The historic Pyrmont Bridge - now a pedestrian-only bridge - splits Darling Harbour in half. The bridge provides access from the CBD to Pyrmont and you can use it to get to the cafes and restaurants pictured on this page.
Pyrmont cafes, with some exceptions, are not as Bohemian in appearance as some of the cafes in Glebe, but there's nothing formal or upmarket about them. Lots of tables and chairs on the sidewalks and a good choice of ethnic cuisines are the go here.
That's not to say there's not a touch of flair in some of the establishments. Banquerie, for instance, has Tuscan-like murals on the walls in both the main servery and in the cosy room adjoining it. This creates a pleasant setting for lunch or coffee. The food is good, and the coffee as well.
Plenty of choice at Banquerie in a deli-style setting. Below: A delightful adjoining room is both inviting and colourful. Picture: © Sydney.com.au
