Starlings Cafe

Top choice international in Southern Suburbs

One of the Southern Suburbs' most charming dining spots. With its relaxed, arty cottage and shady garden environment, it's great for a lazy breakfast or lunch. Excellent coffee, too. For breakfast, choose the likes of French toast and poached eggs with parmesan and basil pesto; lunch dishes include aubergine bake and Asian yellow chicken curry.

It's well off the tourist route and a little tricky to find – hidden as it is behind a big hedge.
