Sugar Rushes and Sweet Treats at Buttermelt


The name says it all. Butter is back in favour and at this new Strathfield cafe, it gets pride of place.

Where is it at its best? On the pancake menu. That’s right, there’s a pancake and dessert menu. Of course there’s buttermilk, but there’s also coconut blueberry, apple and ricotta and even the piece de resistance, chocolate brownie! And you’ll get a proper stack of pancakes. Piled high, drizzled in salted caramel sauce and topped with ice cream.


Ok ok enough about pancakes. How about donuts? Buttermelt gets fresh deliveries of glazed donuts – you’ll find a cabinet of flavours that will test your sugar levels. Rocky road with chocolate ganache, sticky date and butterscotch, peach cobbler and sour peach gummies. Like we said, get your sugar fix here.

If you’re more in need of a caffeine fix, Buttermelt has that covered too. The Sensory Lab coffee is ready to go. 


With bright pops of yellow from uber cool lights, this industrial chic pocket sized cage sits just around the corner from Strathfield station and has the added charm of al fresco tables out on the street.

And the best news is they’re open for dinner. Breakfast for dinner is finally validated!!
