What's the deal?

Sitting somewhere between a cafe and a restaurant, Quick Brown Fox Eatery is a much-loved eatery in the leafy harbourside village of Pyrmont combining pretty plates of feel-good food with wonderful wines, crazy-good cocktails, carefully-crafted coffee, and cosy pockets for drinking and dining indoors and alfresco.

Housed within a gorgeous 1840s sandstone corner cottage, it’s the place to be for a leisurely breakfast, quick coffee meeting, special occasion long lunch or an all-day sip-a-thon.

Let the fun begin with fab food, memorable drinks, warm service, feel-good vibes, chilled beats and charming surrounds.


Sandstone stories

Our charming little corner cottage is one in a string of heritage terraces on Union Street leading up to Union Square, all built in the 1800s from sandstone – or yellow block, as it was known – sourced from Pyrmont’s then-famous quarries. Stepping inside, you feel the history and stories in our walls, with original features like the exposed timber beams and fireplaces preserved and serving as a link to the past.


We welcome you for breakfast 7am-11:45am and lunch 12pm-2:30pm every day.

Absolutely, we love dogs and welcome them to Quick Brown Fox in our outside seating area. We ask that you keep them on leash at all times.

We offer a takeaway menu of coffees, sweets and a selection of bites, which can be ordered from the front of our venue. Or you can order delivery with Uber Eats.

As our alfresco dining area is very popular, we offer seating here on a first come, first serve basis, walk-ins and special events only.

Yes, we offer gluten-free and gluten-free option items across our menus.

We have a breakfast menu and lunch menu, with a few items carried across both, so you can enjoy something delicious to eat or drink anytime from 7am until our kitchen closes at 2:30pm.

We have offered a bottomless brunch in the past but it’s currently on hiatus.

Drop by any time! You don’t have to book, however we would recommend you do if you want to secure a table for a particular time, especially on the weekends, or if you have a group larger than six people.
