Although Paymasters is extremely popular, you should keep your eye out for it as it located away from the hustle and bustle of Newcastle CBD. But, this is not a regular cafe restaurant where you can just pop in for a coffee. At Paymasters you will find yourself surrounded in a heritage-listed building on the site of the Old Convict Lumbar Yard. You can experience the old and the new all in one sitting by having a look at four different types of menus that are sure to leave you with too many choices and not enough decisions. If the only time you can manage to head to Paymasters is on the weekend then you simply must try their weekend breakfast menu which has fifteen different types of breakfasts to choose from. A popular choice for regulars is the eggs benedict Paymaster’s style, including two poached eggs, toasted sourdough, wilted spinach, sundried tomato and honeyed leg ham with hollandaise sauce to top it off. After your large morning meal you can head out to bask in the scenery of the area and burn off those extra calories.

Get ready for an unforgettable experience at this crazy cafe that is influenced by fast food in Australia. The concept, originally started by Harry Edwards, was to create a caravan cafe where people could grab a cheap feed and snack to eat. Now expanding all over the state, Harry’s Cafe de Wheels serves up quality street food. Gather all of your friends and try the best combination of pies, pasties and hot dogs around. Don’t get caught out waiting for a table to order meals with your mates at a regular cafe, simply stand in line for a few minutes while your street food is prepared fresh and fast. You won’t find a fancy breakfast here; however, Harry’s promises you every bite of your perfectly made hotdog served at brunch is going to be sensational. Just don’t forget to ask for mustard!
