With its Saturday Market and boho vibe, Glebe has a personality of its own. Some rave about its European feel, while others decry its decay. Today Postcoder contributor Jennifer Hopper pops on the tie-dye to check out where to eat and drink in this most interesting of inner-city burbs.

Ok, the tie-dye may be a little out of place at Glebe Point Diner. Despite its rather humble name, this place is really pretty sophisticated at least in looks. With low lighting and a moody atmosphere, its perfect for a date with a well-heeled friend. The food is pretty approachable though, with hearty options that will not test your French or your palate.

The Little Guy is maybe what many have in mind when they think of Glebe; young, hip and a bit bohemian. The Little Guy is a soulful, social place ideal for casual hangs with your pals. Craft brews are The Little Guys specialty, with boutique wines and a changing menu of cocktails on offer. And while there may not be much food about, there is popcorn provided if you need some solids.

The name isnt the only awesome thing about this local Mexican eatery. The food at The Flying Fajita Sisters is as fresh and bright as the cuisine gets, with an infusion of European flavours in there for good measure. The servings are generous too, so you wont mind sharing!
La Banette Patisserie
18 Glebe Point Road, Glebe NSW 2037
The European vibe Glebe is famous for may be in part thanks to La Banette Patisserie. Modeled after the best kinds of French bakeries, this gorgeous little place is packed with scrumptious pastries that will have you shouting Oh la la!
Think chocolate-filled croissants, cream or custard-filled tarts and oversized macaroons!

Hetty & Alfie were neighbors in the 1920s. Alfie was a bit of a stand-over man whilst widowed Hetty was a much-loved local known for her good cooking. It is for these two that this eatery is named and Hettys famous roasts are remembered in todays menu. The rest of the fare is similarly hearty and heartwarming think gnocchi, pork belly and crumbles for dessert!
