Breakfast @ Danks St

Danks Street, Waterloo used to be predominantly an industrial warehouse district. Thankfully it now has evolved into a busy food and art scene, with loads of cafes, providores and galleries to enjoy.

  Jared Ingersoll and his team at Danks Street Depot pride themselves on fresh produce and a menu that changes daily. They also proudly support small-scale and artisan producers and their unique offerings. Jared has worked in some amazing places, including in London at 2 Michelin starred The Square and Hillaire as well working as head chef of Sydney's Bayswater Brasserie.

 Danks Street Depot has a relaxed feel... if you come after the early morning rush. Great for a nice hot breakfast and coffee to start the day.

 Desiree Potatoes fried with Garlic, Thyme and Jean Marc's Saucisson. Topped with a fried Egg, Cherry Tomato Relish and served with Sourdough Toast.

They use Cornucopia Farms Bio-dynamic Eggs which come from Lonstock in the upper Hunter Valley.

 Sweet and juicy Tomatoes, Basil, Avocado and Cow's Milk Feta served on Sourdough Toast.

 After breakfast we walk across the street to Fratelli Fresh.

Fratelli Fresh has a wide variety of fresh produce downstairs.
 They stock seasonal fruit and vegetables as well as some rarer varieties.

Up stairs along with their range of Italian olive oils, vinegars and pasta is the cafe.

They also host cooking lessons in their classroom like kitchen.
