For a few months before we finally managed to visit this restaurant, its signboard ‘milkbar’ had caught my attention. There was that sense of old-fashioned / retro look to the restaurant. The restaurant’s name is Daisy’s Milkbar.
On a Sunday afternoon, the restaurant was buzzing with people. One thing that made us happy was that the staffs were all lively and cheerful even when the wait was actually quite long.
Salted Caramel Milkshake – $7
Being in a milkbar won’t be complete without actually drinking milkshake. As an added bonus, the milkshakes from Daisy’s Milkbar were said to be one of the best ones in Sydney… and it was spot on! As a comparison, we tried three salted caramel milkshakes for the last couple of months, and this was the best one!
Pot of Sticky Chai (brewed with milk) – $5
It is a drink that I ordered out of curiosity. The sticky chai latte had a very strong taste. It is only recommended for people who are passionate about chai!
Avo Toast – $9
Seasoned smashed avocado served with garlic toast and grilled cherry tomatoes. I am actually not a big fan of the ingredients’ combination, especially savoury avocado – I am used to Avocado being juiced with condensed chocolate milk and coffee. However, my partner seemed to be loving the dish.
Pesto Eggs – $15
Scrambled eggs served with pesto and Persian feta on toast. This pesto eggs is the dish that I actually ordered.
It was quite a heavy breakfast dish and was the perfect size for my brunch.
Breakfast Burrito – $12.50
The breakfast burrito might look pretty simple, but the fillings really packed a punch: scrambled eggs, bacon, chorizo, potato, chilli, coriander, jalapeno, chipotle sauce and cheese.
This is the breakfast dish that looked the most attractive from the ones we ordered. You can also have the vegetarian option by swapping bacon and chorizo for beans.
Toastie – $8.50
It was a simple sourdough toast with cheese, ham, tomato and mustard mayo
The toastie is almost as simple as the egg and soldiers below.
Egg and soldiers – $5
For the kiddos… toasted slices of bread dipped in soft-boiled egg.
The final verdict for Daisy’s Milkbar
Daisy’s Milkbar has quite a simplistic presentation for their dishes. Their milkshakes were one of the best ones in Sydney.

After talking to some people, apparently Daisy’s Milkbar is famous for its desserts as well. Unfortunately we did not order them this time around.
