Hot New Cafe in Sydney


Charlotte’s Little Sister opens at Australian Technology Park.

Charlotte’s Little Sister is bringing its quality coffee and wholesome café-style food to the Australian Technology Park.

Now open, this is the fifth and latest launch for founder Jason Ghebar, who started with his original Charlotte in Birchgrove in 2008, then followed up with Charlotte’s Little Sisters in Manly and Pennant Hills and Baby Charlotte in Mosman.

The menu, created under the co-direction of Rob Clarson (Sugar & Spoon) and Jimmy Mathers (Pavel & Co) offers breakfast options from bircher to bacon and lunch includes a range of rotisserie meats, fresh salads and organic breads as well as established Charlotte favourites which show a nod to her Mediterranean roots.

The 160-seat space is a stylish addition to the current café scene in Eveleigh. It boasts mosaic tile flooring, leather banquettes and raw timber details, which set the stage for the star of the show, the impressively shiny La Marzocco coffee machine with its handmade steamer arms. For a café is nothing without its coffee and that’s where Charlotte truly excels, serving excellent Campos Coffee which is only enhanced by beautiful works of latte art on top.

Here are three things you’ll love about this place.

The salads

Created using the freshest seasonal produce these are salads that mean business. The roasted sweet potato salad comes with carrot, kale, parsley, walnuts and goats cheese; while the spiced cauliflower and eggplant offering is complemented with pickled currants, kale, coriander, mint and almonds. Leafier options come with optional extras of pork, chicken, haloumi and falafel.

The breakfast buns

These are designed to be eaten on the run, or enjoyed more leisurely on the premises. The choice of filling runs from bacon and egg to smoked salmon. It may not seem fair to single out a hero but the barbecue pork belly with crispy crackling, fried egg, smoky barbecue sauce and spinach deserves a special mention.

The bar

Shhh! It’s not here yet but plans are underway to step seamlessly into early evening with a bar menu accompanied by a range of cocktails, boutique beers and wines by the glass. Workers rejoice.
