There are so many cafes around Sydney that it can be difficult to know what to look for when trying to find one that’s special. Well, let us tell you: look for Bell Blue Cafe in Lindfield. Why? Because it’s a humble establishment that doesn’t aim to be something it’s not. All you’ll find here is the finest quality coffee, great food and a truly warm embrace. It’s in the heart of Linfield right on Pacific Highway and, once seated, you may just find yourself dwelling for longer than you thought…
In Bella Blue you have a cafe that’s perfect for a casual visit as well as for special occasions. It’s for this reason as well as many others that we think it’s one of the best in Sydney. We’ll start with the cafe itself, set in the heart of Lindfield on Pacific Highway, it’s decked out with simplicity in mind. Think neutral colours, cool woods and lots of light. Then there’s the food that comes out of the kitchen. Led by a vastly experienced chef, it makes use of only the finest ingredients and serves rustic food that will put a smile on your face.
For a cafe, the menu at Bella Blue is vast and sophisticated. Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, there is a breakfast menu, constantly rotating blackboard specials as well as light meals and even tapas. Some mains from the a la carte include barramundi fillet on a bed of pumpkin & herb couscous, roasted duck with honey & cumin infused sweet potato, as well as crumbed veal cutlet with some dreamy hand cut chips. It’s also worth mentioning that the drinks list at this Lindfield hotspot is long and Bella Blue also operates a BYO policy. Really not much to dislike as this cafe sets a fine example to others like it in Sydney.
Lunch with a friend. Great service, excellent meal. I had the vegetarian risotto and my friend, the chicken and avocado salad. Both well cooked and presented. Followed meal with great coffee. Will definitely be back.
Went there for lunch last Saturday. The menu has good selections. The staff was friendly and helpful. Love the crispy skin and juicy meat of the spatchcock and duck breast.
The service was, as always, of a very good standard, as well as being friendly. The food was lovely: two of us had the salmon special, which was delicious, and the other two had the spatchcock, which they have pretty regularly and always enjoy.
