Johnny's Window
5A/1 Kings Cross Rd
Darlinghurst, Sydney

There aren't many cafes in Sydney where you can enjoy your coffee or meal with an uninterrupted view of Sydney’s iconic Centrepoint Tower and Johnny’s Window is one of them.

It also happens to be just the perfect distance away from the busy roads of Kings Cross, thus making Johnny's Window truly is a hidden little treasure.

Though small in size, Johnny's Window doesn't fall short on anything. From award winning coffee to scrumptious food, Johnny's Window is very impressive.

The name may suggest that the venue caters for take away only, not at all.

There are a few tables out the front and the atmosphere is very pleasant (plus that interrupted view of Centrepoint Tower is just breathtaking), so its perfect for a sit down meal.

Upon arrival, we started off with a couple of coffees. It's a ritual we just don't seem to stop - or want to stop for that matter.

They serve award winning Gabrielle coffee here and it certainly tastes great, and is also extremely smooth and with a rich crema.

We enjoyed a flat white and a macchiato - our coffee's of choice for almost every day and no different today.

We were then presented with three very impressive dishes.

First was a breakfast platter fit for a king, complete with eggs, toast, bacon, chorizo and avocado - simply awesome.

The chorizo was perfectly cooked and the bacon had just the right amount of crispiness to it.

The avocado was great - just the right amount of ripeness (we don't like avocados that are too ripe).

Next was a bacon and egg roll that was just as tasty. The bun was soft and fresh, and the avocado filling gave it a real creamy texture.

Finally, if you like a high protein meal, then the blueberry chia pudding with vanilla bean yoghurt is the perfect choice for you. Johnny makes each jar of pudding himself, fresh every day. The chia seeds are blended with almond milk, coconut and blueberries the night before, with the yoghurt and fruit added the next morning. It's a really smooth and creamy combination.

Johnny's window caters very well for vegetarians too - so don't panic if you're not into meat or even if you want a break from it!

The spinach tomato and egg tart is perfectly cooked and all encased in a lovely flaky filo pastry.

The breakfast bake with spinach and ricotta is quite unique and the filo pastry makes it more like a pie than a frittata.

Its definitely worth a try.

Okay, so now it was time for something sweet.

We'd heard this place is famous for its cronuts and scrolls and boy are those rumour right!

The cronut we had was topped with Nutella and it was just divine.

The cinnamon scroll was perfectly baked and so moist. We wanted to try the raspberry and ricotta muffins too but we just couldn't fit anything else in.

Johnny's Window is open 6 days a week from early morning to late afternoon. There is an emphasis on quality food, good service and of course a friendly chat. We enjoyed meeting owner Johnny Karakitsos who chatted to us about his passion for good coffee and delicious food - which is clear here.

The Counts, who are now doing reviews for Sir and Mlady Dine Out, dined as guests of Johnny's Window. Special thanks to owner Johnny Karakitsos for arranging this visit.
