Wild Sage Barangaroo opens as the latest café venture in the streets.
How many more eateries could possibly fit in one precinct? There are so many bars, restaurants, food markets and grab-and-go coffee spots already in Barangaroo. But we’re happy to see this addition. Wild Sage Cammeray have just opened Wild Sage Barangaroo. Unlike Wild Sage Cammeray, best known for its relaxed family-friendly atmosphere, the Barangaroo adaptation is a frenzy of suits. Breakfast meetings are underway in the outside seating area, whilst others line up for a quick takeaway coffee at the front counter.
According to the owners, the process of securing the site was lengthy, after putting in a proposal to be considered for the space. With several punters putting in applications, it came down to three different venues before Wild Sage was notified in December that they won the space.
To kickstart the day, we first order a round of coffees and cold pressed juices. We’re told that the coffee is a special blend, one that they design themselves in an external roasting house. The effect is a strong bodied, well-blended flavour.
All of their cold pressed juices ($8) are made in-house. The green pressed juice is a well balanced combination of apple, pear, kale, ginger, mint and lime. Topped with a dehydrated orange, it will have even the most adverse to liquefied-kale converted.
The food menu is a well executed embodiment of current demand amongst Sydney’s cafés. There’s smashed guacamole on toast ($17), french toast served with mixed berry compote and whipped mascarpone ($15.50) teamed with more experimental creations such as the lamb fry up ($19.90) loaded with spices and topped with a fried egg and zatar.
We go for the chilli scramble ($18.9). On a large plate is a generous serve of fluffy eggs laced with fiery red chillies. A frond of roasted broccolini paired with crispy kale flakes adds an earthy feel to the dish. Add a side of bacon.
The healthy bowl ($18) has all the niceties of a good brekkie bowl, with quinoa, baby spinach, sweet potato, beetroot hummus, crispy chickpeas and a poached egg. Balancing out all those yummy savoury elements is a shot glass of green juice. Those looking for a little extra can add avocado or haloumi for $4.
Wild Sage Barangaroo isn’t just restricted to breakfast, serving up well thought out lunch and a newly launched dinner menu. The drinks menu also travels from the civilised coffees and smoothies in the morning to a range of cocktails, wines and beers in the afternoon and evening. One thing’s for certain, you could unashamedly dine here for breakfast, lunch and dinner and never look back.
