Harbord Diggers - Harbord - Sydney - Review

The Harbor Diggers Club recently reopened after a massive renovation and it’s lovely! We’ve been told it was nice before but now it’s superb and very family friendly. We popped in one morning to check it out and join up to the club.

The premises has a café DD Collective which we visited as well as restaurants and a bar and ample room outside to have some food and drinks for breakfast, brunch or dinner and catch up with friends or family.

It also has a coffee trailer which serves drinks and bacon & egg rolls on weekends.

We enjoyed a breakfast from DD Collective café and had granola & fruit with yoghurt and honey for little Miss, a salmon bagel for me and bacon & egg rolls for the boys.

The kids love the play area that is located next to the café and if you can grab a table opposite the playground, you can enjoy breakfast while they play as the play area is fenced.

We visited on a Sunday and on that day they had a kindy farm for the kids to enjoy and pet rabbits and baby chickens - so cute!
