Breakfast and lunch

Start your day with breakfast at The Governors Kitchen. Locally-sourced produce, gluten free choices and Campos artisan blend coffee make the sunny forecourt the perfect place to greet a Sydney morning.

Stop by for lunch, with a wide range of delicious and healthy options, including home made pickles and dips, a Rangers Valley beef brisket burger, skillet potato gnocchi and seasonal seafood dishes. There’s a mini gourmet menu, with a range of classics for children.

The Governors Kitchen has an extensive Australian wine menu, homemade lemonade and refreshing spritzers to quench your thirst, especially after a hard morning sightseeing or shopping.




On the site of the nation’s first Government House, The Governors Kitchen preserves a cherished jewel in the crown of Australia’s colonial past.

Nestled within the landmark Museum of Sydney and a stone’s throw from Sydney Opera House, The Governors Kitchen serves delicious breakfasts and lunches using locally-sourced produce, fresh seafood and home made accompaniments, such as pickles, jams and dips.

A mouth-watering selection of Australian wines and craft beers has been curated to harmonise perfectly with the contemporary Australian menu.

The sun-drenched forecourt makes The Governors Kitchen the perfect location to start your day exploring Sydney’s sights, or to recharge and catch up over lunch. If you’re pressed for time, you can swing by and grab a take-away drink and snack from our outdoor coffee cart.
