This all-day cafe, restaurant, bar, and bakery has been serving classic Italian food on the sidewalks of Potts Points since 2001. Come for a morning coffee and pastry while you read the paper and pretend to be a local, or settle in for a long lunch or dimly-lit dinner. The menu is scrawled on a blackboard inside and often includes dishes like calamari fritti and housemade scampi pasta. Make your way through the long wine list, or get the waiter to surprise you with something that’s already open, and don’t leave without a plate of the boozy tiramisu.

Ester Restaurant & Bar
Almost everything you order at Ester is going to come out of a wood-fired oven. It’s all great, but make sure to get the oysters and sausage senga.
