So here it is. My first café post for Sydney. I did a few here and there in Melbourne, mainly focusing on kid & pram friendly cafes, but Sonoma is my first in Sydney and I am here without a kid or pram!
|Sonoma Cafe. Love the picture collage|
|High ceilings, concrete floor - not a good mix for young kids, perfect for prams.|
|Teencie outdoor area|
The servery continues the classic mood with a carrara marble wrapped benchtop around a dark timber base. The marble adds welcome texture and elevates the design from its industrial core. Opposite this three white cutouts punch out from the exposed brick wall, two filled in with subtle related photography, and the third acting as a window into the bakery itself.

|Morning tea. (Note trendy toddler scrawl on laptop...)|
All in all, Sonoma is a lovely place to eat; very friendly service, elegant interior and great coffee. With or without the pram.
