There are so many cafes around Sydney that it can be difficult to know what to look for when trying to find one that’s special. Well, let us tell you: look for Bell Blue Cafe in Lindfield. Why? Because it’s a humble establishment that doesn’t aim to be something it’s not. All you’ll find here is the finest quality coffee, great food and a truly warm embrace. It’s in the heart of Linfield right on Pacific Highway and, once seated, you may just find yourself dwelling for longer than you thought…
Consistently high quality and tasty food. Had the eye fillet this time for a change from the usually outstanding spatchcock and was extremely happy - perfectly cooked (medium rare) as requested and very tasty with the accompaniments that I requested. Great bread and butter pudding and high quality barista coffee. Deserves to be busier than it seems to be.
The spatchcock was, as it usually is when available, very succulent as was the turkey breast which was on the specials board. Both dishes were well presented. Always most accommodating when it comes to substituting accompaniments. Very friendly and efficient service and consistently high quality barista coffee.
Ask for 2 different meals with adjustments. Didn’t do it.
In Bella Blue you have a cafe that’s perfect for a casual visit as well as for special occasions. It’s for this reason as well as many others that we think it’s one of the best in Sydney. We’ll start with the cafe itself, set in the heart of Lindfield on Pacific Highway, it’s decked out with simplicity in mind. Think neutral colours, cool woods and lots of light. Then there’s the food that comes out of the kitchen. Led by a vastly experienced chef, it makes use of only the finest ingredients and serves rustic food that will put a smile on your face.
For a cafe, the menu at Bella Blue is vast and sophisticated. Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, there is a breakfast menu, constantly rotating blackboard specials as well as light meals and even tapas. Some mains from the a la carte include barramundi fillet on a bed of pumpkin & herb couscous, roasted duck with honey & cumin infused sweet potato, as well as crumbed veal cutlet with some dreamy hand cut chips. It’s also worth mentioning that the drinks list at this Lindfield hotspot is long and Bella Blue also operates a BYO policy. Really not much to dislike as this cafe sets a fine example to others like it in Sydney.
