If you are a Sydneysider or have ever visited Sydney, you will know about our obsession with avocado toast. It has always been a breakfast staple, and in recent years it has been taken to deliciously new levels of sophistication all around homes and cafes in the city!
It gets the gaucamole treatment, smashed up with tomatoes, coriander, lime and a sprinkling of persian fetta. What about a soft poached egg oozing its goodness over finely forked creamy avocado scattered with seeds and micro herbs. Or if you want a true local experience simply sliced avo on good organic sourdough with a squeeze of lemon and a smear of Vegemite. The options are endless!
So if you are in Sydney and have a craving for the finest avocado toast the city has to offer here are a few of the best places to find it!
