Sydney Dining Highlights


      Wanderlust in the Wintergarden

      Something good is growing in the city. Welcome to the Wintergarden – a food-court and retail haven in Sydney’s CBD. Located at 1 O’Connell Street, this green and spacious refuge not only offers the city’s tastiest treats, but services and retailers to save you rushing around during your work day.

      The Wintergarden is open now so get down and explore this glasshouse of food and greenery as Sydney begins to cool down. The Wintergarden houses nine food tenants, serving everything from sushi to slow-cooked lamb, as well a few other residents designed to make your life easier. There’s a dry cleaner, and shoe repairer, a newsagent and naturally – a barber.


      Amble into Chur Express, and see for yourself why their burgers are consistently voted one of Sydney’s best. Chur Express sold over a massive 350 burgers on their first day of trading recently! Give in to your stomach’s wanderlust and try a laksa from CBD Noodles – its co-proprietor Seong was the first man to bring this town’s favourite soup to Sydney over 30 years ago!

      Japanese cuisine masters Sushi Hub bring you the freshest in traditional sashimi and salads, bento boxes, maki rolls, Nigiri and soup. A beautiful wintergarden wouldn’t be complete without fresh fruit and vegetables. And that’s exactly what Top Juice provide; made-to-order green drinks, nutritional juices, smoothies and protein shakes. Indulgent yoghurt and chocolate dipped strawberries are also available for the almost-guilt-free treat!

      From the Wintergarden to the Tropic of Cancer; Los Vida offers the best of fresh and authentic Mexican food. Hola! Beautiful vertical gardens aren’t the only blooms Crema at the Garden cultivate; try one of their coffees to re-awaken the senses. They also have sweet and savoury treats to make your taste buds blossom. Named after the oldest thoroughfare on Manhattan Island that connected the farmlands to the heart of the city, Bowery Lane follows suit by offering homely, seasonal food amidst a New York style cocktail bar and diner. A Wintergarden must.


      Artisan bread-makers Sonoma supply Soul Origin with their scrumptious baguettes. Or grab one of their fresh crunchy salads for a healthy lunch that will see you energised right through the 3pm sleep-zone! The Wintergarden Deli is blooming with wild salads and rustic frittatas. Not to mention their famous Nutella frappe. Just the drink to sit in the atrium and enjoy the serenity of the flora-wall. This CBD conservatory caters to more than cuisine; join the dapper gentry at men’s grooming barbershop: Barberhood for a mid-week spruce up between meetings. Particular about your pleats?

      Press your plaid at Maurice Dry Cleaners with state of the art machinery. Only trust Wintergarden Shoe Repairs when walking in a winter wonderland. Put your best foot forward with Wintergarden’s very own shoe repair guru, Mr Saad. His 18 years in the business means your sole is in good hands.
