With an emphasis on fresh produce and healthy interpretations of classic dishes, it's an underrated gem that's loved by a dedicated selection of regulars for their friendly service and invigorating flavours. 
 
With a tranquil shade of blue lining the walls, the cafe is alive with punters enjoying a sit-down lunch or dropping in for an afternoon coffee. With an expansive menu that'll cater for multiple tastes and settings, Little Big Sugar Salt is perfect for catching up with a crew of mates for a lazy afternoon brunch or for dashing in mid-week for a cheeky moment of reprieve from work.
 
Supported by passionate and expertly trained staff helming the kitchen, your tastebuds are in more than good hands. While some naysayers might suggest that spending your hard-earned dollarydoos on smashed avocado will see you priced out of the housing market for the rest of your days, LBSS's goat's cheese-topped spin on every Aussie millennial's favourite dish is well worth a try. With lemon and chilli notes dancing together for a zesty, spicy surprise – it's a tried and tested favourite for a reason.
 
Their acai bowl adorned with banana and spiced coconut single-handedly defies the expectation that something healthy can't be absolutely delicious, while their aptly titled 'This One' featuring poached eggs and kimchi is a yolky sensation you'll remember. Of course, the coffee here is more than on-point – go their fully fledged range of baguettes and hot sandwiches.
 
If you'd like to a avoid a serious case of FOMO, go with the Eggs with Friends option and let your table overflow with a selection of LBSS's most popular dishes, plated up with sharing in mind.
 
Life's too short for average cafes. If you're in the market for a new local haunt, Little Big Sugar Salt should be the first thing you check out.
