Five must-visit cafes in St Peters and Erskineville
Since creative hub Precinct 75 opened its doors in the humble inner west suburb, St Peters has become a destination for artists, designers and foodies alike. Alongside interior stores and design studios lie a number of serious cafe contenders making their mark on Sydney’s brunch scene. So here are the names worth finding a seat at their table.
The refurbished warehouse dons white walls, wooden floors and tables with a polished Scandinavian feel leaving the coffee the star attraction. From beans to home brewing equipment for sale, you can sip in or sort your caffeine hit at home. The constantly rotating range of beans on offer always keeps it interesting, and avid coffee drinkers coming back.

Aslan Coffee brings a little bit of Indonesia to St Peters and a bright, technicoloured lion to its streets. The cafe’s street art and orange sign bring in locals but the coffee from the Indonesian archipelago keeps diners coming back. All coffee is roasted and brewed in the cosy café – from pulled pork burgers to chorizo bruschetta, the meals are hearty and casual.
1 Council Street, St Peters
After reaching Instagram fame, Kat Logan’s hand painted buttercream cakes now have their own store and lucky for St Peters, it’s inside Precinct 75. The contemporary cakes, which are commonly ordered for birthdays and weddings sit pretty in the new store looking more like MOMA than a bakery. Pop in for a look, and maybe a bite with cupcakes, cake pops and brookies (part brownie, part cookie).
Suite 7.03, Precinct 75, 70 Edith Street, St Peters
Tucked down a quiet street next to the train line, Foodcraft has a loyal following of those who can never seem to get their fill of the all-day breakfast. But putting Foodcraft on the map is their insta-worthy Tella Ball milkshakes. But, back to the breakfast. The extensive menu features belgium waffles, a breakfast salad and the much loved smashed avo on toast.
33 Bridge Street, Erskineville
If we are going to be honest, life is all about those simple, homely pleasures – and Fleetwood Macchiato delivers. The café is cute and compact with a friendly vibe. The team makes everything from the cakes and baked goodies to yoghurts, preserves and condiments in-house and the menu features fresh yet moreish dishes.
