Local's last word

Updated: Apr 12

Katie Peters, 29, has lived in Milsons Point for two years.


My favourite place for coffee... is on the tree-lined street at San Antonio Sourdough Bakery in Kirribilli – I order a coffee and Vegemite toast and enjoy the dogs that come along daily with their owners!

The best meal I’ve had in the area... is at Delicado – a beautiful tapas restaurant with its own wine cellar in McMahons Point.

If I want to have a fancy cocktail... I go to The Botanist for a margarita (or two). The moody lighting is great for a date night or a catch-up with the girls.

If I want a quick drink after work... I go to the Kirribilli Hotel. It reminds me of being back home at a pub in London.

"If I’ve got guests in town... I’ll take them to Foys for a drink overlooking the water."

My fave local takeaway... is the chilli basil fried rice from Thai Fusion. Consistently delicious!

When I’m winding down I... like to go to the North Sydney Pool and have a swim under the Harbour Bridge.

My go-to places to be pampered... are Beauty on Cliff for treatments and Jade Nails for quick and easy Shellac.

My ideal day in the area would be... an essential morning coffee followed by a run over the bridge and a stroll around Kirribilli markets. Lunch overlooking the water and dinner with my partner in McMahons Point where the little round tables that line the street give it a really European feel.

"The three words I use to describe this area are… stunning, relaxed and convenient."

The secret spot I love to go to... is Thelma & Louise by Neutral Bay Wharf. Sitting over the water with a glass of rosé is my idea of perfection.

The thing about living in this area I love the most... is the natural beauty. It has a relaxed village feel but it’s so close to the CBD.
