Food Scene
This artisan gelato shop scoops up traditional as well as outside-the-box seasonal flavours of gelato and sorbet that are just sweet enough without being cloying. The shop uses a creamy Jersey milk base and locally sourced produce. Portions are liberal and reasonably priced. A delightful dessert stop for everyone.

Housed in the 16 Eveleigh Creative Precinct former-warehouse space (also home to the cool Cake Wines Cellar Door), Henry Lee’s is one to add to the breakfast bucket list. With a generous menu of creatively named (and concocted) dishes, a range of specialty lattes, hot chocolates with a twist, and a great brunch, you won’t need to eat for the rest of the day.

This beautiful, glossy bricked, street-corner gem is the latest from the team that brought us Scout's Honour and Morris – two of inner Sydney's sweetest cafes. Tip: For a guaranteed seat, arrive before 7.30pm – the place is catnip for Tinder dates. Must Try: The grilled haloumi makes for an excellent savoury-for-dessert.

This is my favourite local. Though it’s only a few years old, Redfern Continental has quickly become a neighbourhood institution. Lovers of this bistro come for the traditional European dishes. For the small bar down the back – GDR – they come for a slightly different dose of nostalgia, as well as the good drinks. You’ll be forgiven for believing you’ve stepped through a time warp to nearly 50 years ago. Think disco ball and lots of green velour.

Brought to you by owners and Redfern residents Katie Shortland and Scott Gault, RaRa Ramen serves up thin, authentic Hakata-style noodles. Be prepared to queue at popular times – seats are at a premium. Alongside your ramen, choose from a short but sustainable wine list, Japanese beers or local brews on tap from Yulli’s Brews.

This recently opened restaurant is already gaining momentum as a local favourite. Ron’s Upstairs brings the flavours of the Mediterranean – with a side of kitsch – to Redfern. Dine amid the faux grapevines and fairy lights overlooking Redfern Street on rotisserie meats, savoury seafood dishes, shareable sides and yes, some vego options. Ron’s is the latest realisation from Redfern hospitality evolutionaries Dave Jank, Brett Pritchard, Susie Pritchard and Kim Fasher, owners of Redfern Continental (and its Gunther’s Dining Room down the back) and Arcadia Liquors.

Tea never tasted so good! At Japanese diner Juan Bowl & Tea, chef and owner Anna Ishiguro pairs premium teas with a menu that is petite but perfectly to the point. If it’s past tea o’clock, you can pair your dishes with wine, beer or sake too. The quaint and vibrant space is petite, too, seating only 28 lucky diners. Bookings recommended.

Drinks & Nightlife
Time Out Sydney's 2016. Best Neighbourhood Bar. This combination drinking establishment and art space features a flashy decor, including eccentric wall hangings and bold fabrics.

Arcadia was, in fact, one of Redfern’s first small bars, and it’s still going strong. Not the ideal spot for an intimate tete-a-tete, the conversation is loud and lively here. Be sure to check out the lush courtyard out back. And inside, with cold beer, a warm atmosphere and hot toasties, what’s not to love?

Unassuming inside and out, Happy D’s dumpling and beer bar saves its showiness for its delicious petite food parcels. The modest decor includes a massive faux fish tank backdrop and a neon sign promising ‘Dumplings & Dreams’ just like Tom Cruise’s Cocktail. Choose from a short but oh-so-sweet dumpling menu (or just try everything!). The drinks list features Japanese and local beers, sake, cocktails, Japanese whiskies and Aussie wines.

The Noble Hops pours a regularly rotating array of on-tap craft beers from around the world. The bottled beer selection rotates as well, shifting with the seasons. It’s a great spot to enjoy some specialty suds in a casual and relaxed atmosphere. There’s spicy popcorn, too, if you’re peckish.
