Sydney Comes to Portsmouth

The Australian-inspired cafe is bringing the flavors from down under to the East Bay


Sydney is where Australian inspiration meets local ingredients and a passion for quality, and we can’t wait to begin serving our new neighbors,” remarks Jordan Beslago, managing member of Sydney. The original cafe is already a favorite destination in downtown Providence, and in mid-January, a second location will open in Cranston, as well as a third in Portsmouth.

Sydney Portsmouth is set in an Australian, country-style home. The coastal-modern aesthetic features white marble, wide-plank hardwood flooring, and designer furniture. The eatery will offer large communal tables and ample outdoor seating. Much like the original location, Sydney Portsmouth will have a full espresso bar and loose tea menu, serve breakfast and lunch, and offer favorites like avocado toast and the signature roasted broccoli sandwich.

In addition, Sydney will be introducing a new series of made-to-order smoothie bowls, plant-based noodles, and new grab-and-go items, including a larger selection of vegan and gluten-free pastries. By springtime, the kitchen also plans to incorporate a limited dinner menu with beer.

This enhanced footprint will allow Sydney’s catering business to serve a much larger area and roll out improved service options, such as mobile ordering. The catering menu features breakfast, lunch, beverages, and premium baked goods.
