Fox and Bird Café

It’s a good value for your money, and the ever-enthusiastic chef is always willing to put a new twist on old favourites. Order up The Corn Field for some traditional corn fritters with a crunchy twist, and indulge in some mouthwatering single-origin blend coffees.

Bowden Café

The Bowden Café is open for breakfast and lunch. On Wednesdays through Saturdays, it opens again later in the evening for a bistro experience. Choose from juicy burgers, basic dishes, or vegan options. The menu at Bowden serves up something for everyone. The Ryde NSW cafe is open seven days a week and offers gluten-free and vegetarian options, in addition to a standard all-day breakfast for those with a more traditional appetite. Once you have a full belly its time to move onto something free to do in Ryde.

The Missing Piece

Aptly named, the Missing Piece just might be the missing piece in your life. You’ll find this little gem in the Macquarie Centre is a fantastic choice for a hefty middle-of-the-day feed. Call it breakfast, lunch, brunch, or just good food. Enjoy delicious dishes, fabulous décor, and above-average coffee. If you’re on the clock, take note that service can be a bit slow. It’s the worth the wait, though, if you’re not under time pressure. And you best turn up hungry or risk losing out. The portions are big, and while take-home bags are always an option, it’s never as satisfying as a clean plate and a full belly.

Element 6

Four-star reviews all around for this West Ryde cafe. Sweets, savouries, and coffees all make your mouth water and your senses tingle. Fast, efficient service and a quirky interior make it a fun spot for a lunch-time pop-in or just for grabbing a quick coffee on the go. A wide range of menu choices and a supply of toys on hand also make it an excellent stop for families and young kids. Crispy onion and Brickfields sourdough, raspberry poached apples and maple syrup, and macadamia praline are just a few of the delights on offer in this Ryde New South Wales cafe.
