Double Bay’s latest hot cafe, Little Jean on Kiaora Road is the product of the eponymous Jeanette and her partner Chris, the minds behind Sheal Bistro. Their expansion into the eastern suburbs of Sydney is a stylish and understated place to pick up a bite to eat and grab a coffee. They use as many local ingredients as possible, from carefully-selected producers with an emphasis on ethical and sustainable practices.
Jean, Jean, you let me get lucky with you: So sang The Proclaimers back in 1988. In the here and now at Little Jean in Double Bay, you can get lucky every day. They are open from 6:30am for breakfast, and when you get into Kiaora Lane early, you get one of the best early morning feeds that Sydney has to offer. The coffee is from Single Origin Roasters, a local Sydney bean merchant, and the food menu includes Aussie favourites like bacon & eggs alongside cafe classics such as porridge, crepes and countless egg dishes.
Breakfast is the star of the show at Little Jean on Kiaora Road, but the lunch and evening options are extensive as well. They reflect the best of Double Bay, with health foods like quinoa, kale and avocado alongside artisanal dishes like duck leg salad, moules marinieres and Hawkesbury baby squid. A night out in this corner of the Eastern Suburbs of Sydney is never wasted, so book a table now.
Great service, food and venue. Had the pork hock which was new on the menu - very good. Service quick as we had to leave early and they took our booking early
