There’s an international air at Uliveto Cafe, in the heart of Sydney’s Potts Point, with an international team pulling together a menu that fuses some interesting global flavours. Where else in the vicinity of Kings Cross can you find roast vegetables with homemade kimchi accompanying rare sirloin steak? And they call themselves a cafe. This is restaurant-quality fare at a great Bayswater Road location that also happens to do an all-day breakfast and fantastic coffee.
There is, in fact, a pronounced Korean-Australian dialogue happening on the menu at Uliveto Cafe. This is due in large part to chef Lee, whose kimchi fusion dishes dot the offering like so many spicy surprises. Fresh and all-natural venison from urban hunter-gatherers Bondi Hunter meet the Korean delicacy halfway, while a distinctively Aussie meld of Greek and Korean cuisines plus, yes, Vegemite awaits the more adventurous of Sydney diners who make their way to this innovative cafe and restaurant down Potts Point’s Bayswater Road, a hop, skip, and jump away from Kings Cross.
Regulars to Uliveto enjoy the affordable coffee and sandwich takeaway combo, while those with big appetites in the morning lap up one of the best all-day-breakfast offerings in Potts Point (there are even special Irish and Jamaican coffees on tap for those who need a little pick-me-up). Just far enough from the hustle and bustle of Sydney’s Kings Cross, but close enough to the action for casual walk ins seeking refuge, Uliveto is a hot proposition for those looking for relaxed bistro-style dining, or just quality coffee, in the heart of the city.
Good food, interesting menu - innovative yet keeping the breakfast "old favourites" for those who can't go without their bacon and eggs. Excellent coffee. Professional and friendly service. Pet-friendly.
Great coffee, great food and great service. We were a big group for my birthday. They offered us a choice of seating indoors or outside. They even sang me happy birthday and brought me a delicious piece of cake!
The manager was great..food excellent .. Very busy place ..no surprise why! All day breakfast and the coffee 10/10.. Definitely will go back again soon.
Had a late brunch. Great atmosphere & very pleasant food! Flavourful coffee complete with artful froth portraits. Shown to a comfortable table and then enjoyed efficient, unobtrusive service.
