Cosy and charming, The Falconer is a cafe-cum-restaurant-cum-bar offering respite from the Darlinghurst din outside. Unpretentious food, a well-rounded wine list and superb coffee – magic.

The Hyde Park end of Oxford Street; close to buses and Museum Station.

Oh yes, those dapper young chaps at The Falconer have done it. A bowl of pasta, a glass of red, Bowie on the stereo: embrace the warm hug that is The Falconer. A cosy haunt to stumble across on Oxford Street’s confused cluster of clubs and cafes, this surprisingly delightful find offers welcome respite from the theatrical flurry outside. Sheltered from the hubbub, this charming space echoes days of old, with dim lighting, black-and-white checked floors and booths built to sink into. The former Aristotle’s site opened as The Falconer in mid-2008, after the weary old girl was given a hefty helping of love. Chandeliers bounce light off polished wooden floorboards; mirror panels open up the sliver of a dining room; and the record player makes friends of Lou Reed and Elvis Costello.

Slip into a booth with friends old or new, and settle in for breakfast, lunch, dinner or anything in between. Start the day with a picking from the pastries and a cup of quality coffee, progress to a panino, pasta or salad for lunch, or drop by for an after-work drink and nibble Tuesday to Sunday. The earlybird dinner special satisfies with pasta, bread and wine; or peruse the a la carte menu for seasonal offerings. Pappardelle with braised rabbit ragu, mustard seeds, port and tomato is a highlight, as is the vanilla bean pannacotta with fresh mango. The kitchen’s modern Australian menu is complemented by sprinklings of rustic Italian flavours – the perfect accompaniment to a glass of wine, or three. Knowledgeable staff and a welcoming atmosphere make The Falconer an ideal spot for solo contemplation or a drink with mates. Welcome to your new local.
