dish-parkroyalPARKROYAL Picks offer a compilation of hidden gems and best-kept secrets to help travellers explore the city like a local. Once considered a culinary cul de sac, multicultural diversity has been a boon to Parramatta’s eat streets. From fine dining, to homey and hearty, cuisines from east and west or a blend of both, pastry pit stop or gourmet gelato, there is a culinary cross section to discover that will delight diners of all tastes.

1. Circa Espresso

21 Wentworth Street, Parramatta

Eccentric and eclectic, this buzzy café is sandwiched between two buildings in an unused laneway, only 15 minute walk from the hotel. Enjoy the urban edginess of graffiti art from a cluster of milk crates on the footpath. Circa Espresso don’t take reservations and you may have to wait for a table, but the imaginative brunch offerings are worth it. Vegan and vegetarian options well catered for. So tantalize your taste buds and start your day with one of the house specialties, homemade granola or Ottoman Eggs.

2. Sabu Modern

321 Church Street, Parramatta

For lovers of Japanese cuisine, Sabu Modern puts an exciting Japanese spin on quality Australian fare. Located a two minute walk from PARKROYAL Parramatta, the décor is a modern take on the Japanese narrative of elegance; sleek with subtle lighting and the warmth of wood. The chefs here take a fresh is best approach and the menu is extensive. Sake enthusiasts will be spoilt for choice.  We love the zucchini flower tempura – delicious! Kids are catered for.

3. Paper Plane Café

5/2 Horwood Place, Parramatta

Cute and quirky, decorated with chalkboard chic, this café is a popular spot and crowds often spill onto the footpath. Enjoy the loungey, lazy ambience just a short two minute walk away. Taste some burger brilliance with the Jalapeño Popper or eponymous Paper Plane burger. The truffle eggs are not to be missed.


4. The Emporium

51 Phillip St, Parramatta

Dine in style at The Emporium. This 150 seat venue has a restaurant, wine bar and coffee roaster, large enough to offer homage to the coffee gods, encased in its own glass room. The menu is modern Australian in mood with Mediterranean influences. The setting is rustic Italian, think exposed brick, marble table tops and the courtyard dining area is a delight, dripping with ivy, jasmine and romance. Live music on Sunday and Mondays. Just a sedate stroll down the street from the hotel.

5. Jamie’s Italian Trattoria

Centenary Square, Church Street, Parramatta

Serving rustic dishes with full robust flavours, Jamie’s offers simple traditional offerings like pizza and pasta, using recipes this chef is famous for. Love the antipasto board which is served on a wooden platter upheld by vintage cans. In keeping with his ethos, the kids menu has healthier options. About a 6 minute stroll from PARKROYAL Parramatta this is a busy, bustling place over two levels, so booking is advisable. There is an outdoor seating area for warmer weather or the fresh air enthusiast.
