McMahons Point locals know Indulgent Sage well as a breakfast spot down Blues Point Road with beautiful views out over the water and Sydney Harbour Bridge. Yet this bistro-style restaurant and cafe deserves a wider reputation as an internationally-inclined eatery with dishes designed to be shared. A great option both for romantic rendezvous and family outings, Indulgent Sage’s seasonal menus are presented beautifully in bright, recently refurbished premises, making this again an ideal venue for canape receptions and private dining.
Breakfast at Indulgent Sage is ever popular, with stunning views of Sydney’s harbour and a bright and airy venue down Blues Point Road at which to enjoy that all-important meal. Freshly baked goods include classic croissants with preserves, leg ham and cheese, or bacon and egg. You can also grab buttermilk scones, banana bread, and delicious loaves of sourdough, granary, mixed fruit and gluten-free bread. A perennial favourite are this McMahons Point bistro’s croque monsieurs and madames, also available gluten-free. From there its a light and nourishing traversal of French toast and pancakes, bruschetta, eggs and big breakfasts, plus some interesting Indian-inflected dishes: kheema pav, breakfast roti, and the Bombay-style omelette.
Indulgent Sage’s all-day a la carte menu ratchets up the cafe offering with a broad range of international, bistro-style dining options. Most of these dishes are designed for sharing, starting with small plates of parmigiano and truffle fries, lentil fritters, crispy squid and sticky pork ribs. Gourmet sandwiches, burgers, and pies (gluten-free always an option), offer no-fuss comfort food to invariably satisfied diners at this McMahons Point restaurant. Our picks are the rib steak sandwich, the South Asian-style, vada pav veggie burger (spiced potato pattie, mint chutney and tamarind paste), and Mrs Sage’s signature shepherd’s pie. Healthy and light options include a lively lime, cucumber, rocket, mint and green chilli calamari salad and the hearty, healthy pumpkin and quinoa salad. A great place to unwind and dine on the northern side of Sydney harbour, book your tables at Indulgent Sage down Blues Point Road in advance, especially for those sought-after breakfast spots.
