As any discerning coffee drinker knows, Toby’s Estate is the go-to bean for a great brew, but you can also pay a visit to one of their two signature cafés in Sydney – Woolloomooloo or Chippendale – and nourish yourself with their all day brekky menu. You’ll find the usual suspects of bacon and eggs or bircher muesli, but Toby’s goes the extra mile with options like baked potato and leek gratin with smoked salmon, or smoked cascara lamb shoulder and beans. The truffled poached egg with haloumi will help you rediscover a love of truffle oil, which here is used to tantalise, rather than overwhelm, the tastebuds; a rare sure thing.
