About Us.

Who We Are

We are Sydney siders supporting our fellow Sydney siders with a hot breakfast and a warm smile. 

We are committed to supporting Sydney's disadvantaged

The Early Bird Cafe (EBC) operates five mornings a week (Monday – Friday), serving in excess of 20,000 meals per year.  The EBC is managed by the City Community Care Inc (CCC) Management Committee, operating through the efforts of a large volunteers team, comprising of community members and city office workers who volunteer priori to commencing work. 

Initially breakfasts were provided via table service – as a result of the impact of the Covid pandemic, services have altered to a “take-away” service.

EBC gives a non-judgemental commitment to its customers to provide its services in a safe, secular environment
