Why ‘the Fountain’ in Potts Point has taken on a whole new meaning

If there’s one thing to know about Potts Point in Sydney (other than the fact the Government has systematically sucked the life out of the city’s once bustling region) is that the water ball fountain is synonymous with the area. It’s seen some things, that’s for sure.

But just next to, going by the same name, stands a cafe that is fast becoming a necessary part of the weekend and after-hours lifestyle of the locals from both near and far.

The Fountain cafe takes prime position out the front of the waterball fountain – actually named ‘El Alamein Fountain’ – offering its passers-by somewhere to stop for some seriously wonderful menu options in a setting that is as welcomingly Sydney-like as it is welcoming.

The cafe pays homage to the rich art deco of the 1930s and the resurgence of the Potts Point area and does so in great style.

Designed by ACME, Fountain’s interiors retain their original Art Deco spirit to reflect the heritage of the historical building. It comes complete with a large outdoor dining area overlooking Macleay Street and the El Alamein Fountain also pays reference to this era of bohemian decadence, which championed alfresco dining and wine culture.

Whatever your need for a cafe, their seasonal menu of house made classics, by day, Fountain is a deluxe breakfast eatery that makes starting every day a delicious experience.

Two standout menu items? It wouldn’t be a brunch offering menu without the likes sweet corn fritters with avocado salsa, coriander and free range soft poached eggs and the likes of their signature Fountain Duck Fat Hash, which is a stack of bacon, avocado, tomato salsa, cheddar and soft poached egg, paired with their stunning barista-made brews on hand and array of alcohol to keep you going all afternoon.  Or evening.

At dusk, Fountain effortlessly transitions into a premium wine bar stocking the award-winning Hungerford Hill and Sweetwater Estate varietals from the Hunter Valley, as well as an expertly curated selection of wines from across the globe. Enjoy a light bite or a tipple – or if you’re in the mood, tuck into something a little more generous.
