Devon on Danks

Despite Devon Cafe being one of my self-proclaimed favourite cafes in Sydney, it had taken me a very long time to make my way to its newer counterpart, Devon on Danks. It was raining on the day we came here, and Amelia and I were lucky enough to find parking right across the street. Even though it was a weekday at lunchtime, the place was busy and we had to wait a little bit before being seated. In terms of ambience, I feel like Devon on Danks has less of a hipster feel than its Surry Hills counterpart.

In addition to their paper menu, Devon on Danks also has a chalkboard specials menu, which includes their popular soft serves with ever changing flavours.

We had a brief look over the menu before ordering. Amelia and I were so hungry by this point that we decided to have something sweet before our savory dishes, and ordered a cronut to share. The service was pleasant and friendly. I should note that I have never had bad service at Devon Cafe either.

Devon’s cronut ranked on the scale as one of the better cronuts I have tried in my life. The outside layers were crisp, with a good popcorn to cronut ratio.

Admittedly I never read any Dr Seuss novels as a child, but when I saw that Devon on Danks had created a real life version of Dr Seuss’s dish, I had to try it. One of the things I love most about Devon is their quirky culinary creations, which breathe new life in modern Australian cuisine. The dish came with a thick piece of bacon, fatty and succulent. Included was Devon’s signature 63 degree egg, with pea puree, soybeans and crispy potato.

I had a bit of Amelia’s burger, which included perfectly fried chicken and chilli mayo. The chips were thick cut and seasoned nicely.
