Foodies

Newtown is Brooklyn to Sydney's Manhattan!

Newtown Precinct is media favourite numero uno when it comes to eating out.

Why? Not only are we known for our cafes and restaurants, but people are now discovering Newtown’s fresh produce, artisan bread and the best gelato in Sydney. The queue outside Campos coffee each morning is testament to the quality brew their baristas are handing out. The intoxicating smell of fresh beans as you walk past is enough to lift anyone’s day.

We even have our own brewery in Young Henrys, brewer to the famous! Or if you have a sweet tooth, try one of our gelato and yoghurt bars on King Street. As you watch people licking the very last delicious spoonful of gelato out of their cone you could be mistaken for thinking you have been transported to Italy.

Just down on Enmore Road you will find Alfalfa House a not-for-profit cooperative selling organic food to its members. To complement the international restaurants in Newtown there are a large number of Newtown shops specialising in products from all around the globe.

Whether you are into the slow-food movement, paddock to plate, organic, free-trade or just want your coffee hot and fresh, the variety and quality of the Newtown food shops will surprise you.
