Despite the large number of diners the service was really good. The outdoor atmosphere very pleasant.
I had never been there before so it was great. I would definitely go back there again
With white-painted brick walls and industrial-chic decor, a nod to the buildings former past, this spacious eatery has lots of style. Its name may take inspiration from the melancholic Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds song, but a trip to this trendy Sydney Olympic Park cafe is a much more joyful affair. At breakfast time you could tuck into some smashed and smoked toast (smashed eggs, smoked salmon, julienned Lebanese cucumbers and Spanish onions on quinoa sourdough bread) or feast on the hot breakfast (toast, eggs done your way, bacon, paprika infused chorizo, grilled tomatoes, chunky lemon avocado and Pepe Saya butter).
Or, sink your teeth into a gourmet burger like the classic cheeseburger, a juicy patty topped with double red cheddar, Coney Island mustard and pickled cucumber in a milk bun. You’ll also find main course dishes, as well as in-house baked goods and specialty coffees. Located inside Sydney’s Olympic Park on Herb Elliott Avenue, Abattoir Blues is a popular choice whether it’s for dinner or a caffeine fix after a stroll around the park.
