Pantry bare? Don’t despair! If you’re lucky enough to find yourself in Marrickville you can forget about the dreaded supermarket shop and just eat every meal out instead! Seriously, there is no need to even buy bread, just take yourself off to our breakfast, lunch and dinner recommendations and fill your tummy with all kinds of delicious.
Breakfast at Cornersmith Café & Picklery
So really it depends on what time you get out of bed as to whether you call this meal breakfast or brunch – either way a visit to Cornerstone Café & Picklery is going to give you the giddy up. With a vegetarian menu (don’t knock it till you try it), and their own garden from which to pluck fresh produce, the food at the Cornersmith is fresh and full of flavour. It’s so good you may in fact find yourself getting sucked into taking a jam or pickling class just so you can try to recreate the tastes at home.

Lunch at Marrickville Pork Roll
Now one for the meat lovers! Marrickville Pork Roll is a bit of an institution ‘round these parts. Famous for making the perfect bahn mi, Marrickville Pork Roll has basically perfected the art of making melt-in-the-mouth fluffy bread filled with yum! Be warned, it can get busy so maybe schedule lunch a little early to avoid the rush!

Make sure you’ve worked up an appetite before dropping by phd. Best known for their beef pho, these guys also do quite delicious things across the board – think scrumptious rice and noodle dishes, laksa and crazy tasty stir-frys. Popular as heck, there are actually two phd restaurants around the corner from each other so no one goes hungry!

Drinks at Vic on the Park
The crew at Vic on the Park knows how to have fun. With a basketball area and hip hop day once a month, open-air cinema and live music, they pack a lot into their pub. The atmosphere is always buzzing and there are loads of places to chill with friends or get up and groove. And if you’re still a bit peckish post-phd (really?), they do great food here as well.
