People tend to check in during these times:
Great little independent store. Not inexpensive but do have a boutique range of goods.
Their pre made salads make a healthy and easy work lunch option
Good vegetarian selection (but not the cheapest) including organic tempeh, smoked tofu, black beans for Mexican cooking and veg ready meals.
Best coffee this part of Crown St
Best bread I've had in Sydney
Good grocers, really friendly but check used by dates!!! I've been caught out a few times with out of date posh goodies
Best local grocers in Surry Hills. Friendly staff, great selection of food and eclectic music.
Looks expensive, but us actually cheaper than Woolworth's and Coles for lots of things - produce is much better here also!
Best place to get Sonoma bread in Surry Hills!
My favourite place to get a coffee and my groceries and have a chat with the lovely staff. A great first port of call on a busy day
