Sydney, New South Wales

Three Blue Ducks is one of the best cafes in Sydney by day and transforms into an impressive but unpretentious dining space by night.

The menu at Three Blue Ducks is filled with produce from the sea artfully arranged into tasting dishes designed for sharing.

The story behind Three Blue Ducks is simple. A couple of mates who all happen to share a love of eating and cooking decided that they needed to find a job that would not only foster passion for food, but would also let them surf. The answer: to open a cafe in Bronte. At first, the people of Sydney came here to experience the magic of one of the Blue Ducks, former Tetsuya chef Mark LaBrooy. Once the masses got a taste of Three Blue Ducks, in all its effervescent and energetic glory, the rest of the Three Blue Duck story is history.

What started as a casual cafe, the Three Blue Ducks have since taken over the pizza parlour next door, offering the perfect space for a more formal bar and dining room. With Mark at the pots and pans, the other two members in the duck-trio is Sam Reid and Chris Sorrell, as barista. The winning formula of this bustling place is the well-priced menu, house-made pastries and baked goods and staff who look like they actually like they actually want to be there.

If you head there on a weekend, queues wait outside, creating an excited buzz that surrounds the periphery of the 20-seater cafe. By night, however, the vibe is more chilled out. There are no tablecloths or snooty waitresses. The printout menu is without all your usual bows and whistles yet the food impresses with the use of quality produce and some seriously talented chefs.

There's a place on Macpherson street in Bronte, number 141 I think...That's supposed to be alright.

Three Blue Ducks. Go to dish is scrambled eggs, black sausage, dill cucumber yoghurt salad and red currant jam. Best coffee is thePrickly Pear Mona Vale, best part - they know your order and the week would not be complete without a caffeine hit from these guys. Boathouse Palm Beach - best part it's overlooking Pittwater.
