I think the Oceanic Cafe, in Elizabeth St, Surry Hills, must take the prize for the oldest cafe still in its original state in Sydney. Entirely untouched by renovation, it sits amidst a sea of gentrification. I think the bell is tolling for this one! I love the wooden booths and laminex table tops. Do you think you'd like anything on their menu? Rump steak; beef rissoles; bacon egg and chips; lamb's fry; t-bone steak; lamb loin chops.
