Plenty at the Square is a lovely place for an evening meal with a friendly community vibe and local seasonal produce. BYO or pop into The Cobbles bar opposite for a pre-dinner drink. Then across the courtyard to Plenty. The Mushroom Bouginon was delicious - nice flavour combo of wine, garlic and mushroom - with mash, roast parsnip and baby carrot with green salad. My friends had the Bombay potato filo crust pie. For dessert we all opted for sticky toffee apple pudding which was served with Apple ice cream. The apple ice cream was amazing - like eating tangy appley snow! So light and fluffy. Then for coffee. Like most Sydneysiders I'm a bit of a coffee snob. Plenty at the Square made the best coffee I've had in the UK. Locally roasted in Huddersfield, the barista knew how to serve a great flat white to round off our meal.

Went here for our first visit to the South Sq veggie cafe which wanted to go to for ages. It's now been taken over by Plenty at the Square who not only serve great veggie and vegan food looking at the menu but draw from local growers, actively work to minimise food waste and are in to preserving the plentifulness from local growers.

We had gorgeous coffee and fruit bread, bought a delicious pot of pear and lavender preserve, and enjoyed the art on the wallls.

It's also very welcoming and friendly.

Recommended!

A great café, a varied menu packed with stunning seasonal food. Never had a bad meal there, the recent mushroom and chard lasagne was outstanding. Run by a great team, lots of smiling faces and very knowledgeable about food. Just a great atmosphere. The cordials need a special mention, Lemon, Blackcurrant, Plumbena and Elderflower, so far on our visits. The dried fruit roll "sweets" are a treat too.

Lovely cafe, brilliant staff. Fantastic food and a cracking hot chocolate.
I would highly recommend it. Great range of jams to buy too.
