Camel’s love gnomes…we barely know they’re there. This place is similarly low-key. But the coffee and right-on-the-money meals bely its size. Probably the best of its type in Surry Hills, which has more opportunities than 12yo Rhodes Scholar. http://www.urbanspoon.com/r/70/1559146/restaurant/New-South-Wales/Gnome-Cafe-Surry-Hills
From the outside…hell, from the inside too, you’d think you’re in just another “we knit our own creme fraiche” cafe.
But satellite is much more than this. Creative, professionally sourced interpretations and ingredients, very well put together.
Sure, the coffee’s great, and desserts are right on the not-very-much money.
And yes, the place has been put together like a good piece of modern art…it looks like you could do it yourself, but if you tried, you’d just get brown disaster.
But the meals are what you’re here for, and the crew care til it hurts.

Phillip Searle had a restaurant, Oasis Seros. In kids speak, he CBF’d it, and opened this bakery about 15 years ago, when sourdough was as popular as Tony Abbott at a climate change conference.
Your Camel doesn’t identify with the “lizard drinking” metaphor, preferring to be “flat out like a Dromadarie not really needing to drink, because we are superior beings that don’t succum to human fralities”…can’t imagine why it never caught on…
