Bills has been a Sydney icon since a 24 year old Bill Granger opened his first cafe in 1993 and now 20 years later it’s world famous for it’s scrambled eggs and ricotta hotcakes.
Even though I never visit on the weekend because of the lines I dig Bills, and even though some of staff can be a little pretentious and some of the eastern suburbs trophy wives who eat there annoy me, I still go back. The food is amazing and the room is perfect on a sunny Sydney morning.
Bills has a few unusual drinks and the rosehip punch and elderflower cordial are a nice change from the standard orange juice in the morning.Rosehip and mint punch $7
I normally opt for the corn fritters when I’m in the mood for something savoury and I recommend the side of avocado salsa. They come with bacon but my vegetarian dining companion requested mushrooms instead which were sautéed to perfection. The fritters are jam packed full of sweetcorn and who doesn’t like corn huh?Sweetcorn fritters, roast tomato, spinach with a side of mushrooms $21
Bills probably has the most famous scrambled eggs in the world and with good reason, the not so secret ingredient is cream and and these are the softest most luxurious eggs you will ever eat. Served here with a side of fresh tomato. Scrambled organic eggs and sourdough toast $14.50
These are the reason I come to Bills (and sometimes the reason I get out of bed), warm fluffy hotcakes topped with a melting disc of honeycomb butter served with banana and a pot of maple syrup. These are always on the money and with one bite you can see why they have gained such a reputation.Ricotta hotcakes, banana, and honeycomb butter $19.50
