There’s such a charming Sydney vibe about Graze. Its bucolic location in a black-and-white bungalow in Rochester Park is a plus, as is the vastly improved service. The breakfast menu is wideranging, from eggs done to your liking and muesli to freshly squeezed fruit juices and inch-thick toast. But the star attraction is the fry-up ($18), here served in a castiron pan crowded with fat bratwurst, sautéed mushrooms, sunny-side-up eggs, baked beans and nicely oily bacon. Thoughtfully, a vegetarian version is also available. The few low notes were banana pancakes overwhelmed by the red currant sauce ($13), expensive mojitos ($18) that needed a lot more alcohol and none-too-clean men’s toilets.
Whilst agreeing with the comment about the expensive, practically non-alcoholic mojitos, in general this place is impressive for its level of service, quality of food and chilled out vibe. Took my parents who were visiting from out of town and they were suitably impressed (not easy to do), so clearly caters to the young & hip to the seniors crowd. Their tuna carpaccio starter with wasabi is always a winner, and the white wines were amazingly chilled to the right temperature ... no asking for extra buckets of ice finally!

I love this place, just went back on the weekend for the first time in a month. Was suprised to see they have totally re-vamped the place. Great new designed chairs and tables and now you can even sit upstairs and watch eveyone from the balcony. Best desserts plate in town.

incredibly overpowering flavours completely destroyed the natural taste of the food. at least they were good enough to not charge for the food we had to send back because it was so strong.

I had my first trip to Graze on friday, loved the outdoor seating with the old movies being shown. The coctails were a little pricey, in fact the food is too - although very delicious this set us back even more than a treat meal at Flutes. Definitely worth a visit for the setting and ambience.
