I've posted about this before, but I can't write about Sydney's best things to see/do if I don't include breakfast at Big Brekky in Stanmore.
It's a real treat, with campos coffee, and unexpectedly beautiful, yet simple food. My favourite is the Nim's eggs, which are poached, and come with tomato, bacon, homemade banana chutney and pesto.
It's unassuming from the outside, but once inside, the homely wooden floorboards and central communal table win you over.
It changed owners not long ago, but I still reckon it's the bomb (with sometimes slow and not great service).
