I always love that anticipation when you walk past a construction site, and after taking a peek, you realise it’s a commercial spot for a future restaurant or cafe. And then you find out that it finally opened, and discover it’s a quaint cafe with so much potential. You schedule in your first visit. You take a seat, marvel at the cute and crazy 60’s wallpaper that reminds you of the Beverley Hills Hotel, pick up the beautiful gold cutlery, and order your coffee. You take a look at the menu, one side for breakfast served all day, the other for lunch (from 11am onwards). You look at your watch. It’s 1pm, so definitely lunch (although I have no issues over having bacon and eggs at midday).
Two Sis Pyrmont is the sort of place you expect to find lots of millenials who are crazed-up about their Instagram feeds, and you do find them there. I can’t blame them. The place is cozy, pleasantly designed, and with lots of good lighting for that money shot. But what keeps me coming back is the food and the service. Mem, one half of the 2 sisters, serves the best coffee and cake made in house, and the food is not only presented beautifully, but tastes amazing too. The Asian influence seeps through the dishes, and you only have to look at the menu to spot some classic comfort food: Quinoa Goreng, Ramen Bowl with tonkotsu broth, and the Poached Salmon Bowl with salad and an amazing Ikura & Wasabi Vinaigrette dressing. We returned the following week for the breakfast menu, and the humble bacon and egg roll did not disappoint.
I’m ecstatic that a new cafe opened just minutes from my front door, and one that serves great food and gives amazing service. This one is definitely for keeps.
