It's winter in Sydney now, but I just found a place which make me feel in the summer time (except the wind outside the cafe, lol). In the intersection of Forbes street and Burton street you will find a cafe with a wink rabbit as logo, called The Rusty Rabbit.
It located in Darlinghurst, Sydney near St Vincent's hospital. I always pass this place whenever I take a bus to Paddington from CBD and this place really caught my attention. I like the industrial and vintage look in the interior of the cafe and lucky me I got the perfect table near the window. The Rusty Rabbit serves all day breakfast and lunch (lunch will serve start 11.30 am)
I've got a different table situation from what I've seen from some pictures on instagram, that day our table atmosphere was sooo summer. They added the pineapple as the table decoration and voila here come the summer ambiance. Because of this, my friend decided to order a cold drink to brighten the day. I ordered chicken & rice and hot chocolate, meanwhile my friend decided to get smashed avocado and minty lemonade.

Hot chocolate on a cold day never failed on me and I liked my healthy brunch menu. My brunch was chicken breast marinated in garlic, thyme and citrus served with greens (I got broccoli and sauteed spinach), brown rice, red quinoa and topped with crispy sweet potato. If I could customized one thing, I would love my meal without balsamic vinegar on the bottom layer of it, everything was perfect except for that thing.
For the cold drink, Minty Lemonade we loveedd it so much. It was so refreshing, we even really curious for the recipe as we really wanted this kind of drink on our home. My friend's smashed avocado spread on soylinseed toast and topped with feta cheese and she love it so much (I didn't try this one as I needed to focus on finishing my meal, LOL).
