Nestled in the up and coming suburb of Waterloo you’ll find the floral-filled Social Hideout, a dreamy cafe that was simply made for the ‘gram.
Recognisable from afar, the cafe’s floral arrangements are, of course, what catches the eye first. But the flower power doesn’t stop at the exterior. Step through the entrance and you are greeted with a wildly stunning ceiling filled with draped lavender, as well as more intricate floral decor boasting soft pinks and purples.

A bubbly morning breakfast at @socialhideout is our ? FAVOURITE ? It’s been the second time we’ve returned in a month, and we’re definitely edging on visiting a third! The whole space is so decadent and vibrant with a menu to match. This time around, we ordered the Social Breakfast which comprised of avo, mushrooms, poached eggs, tomato, broccolini, sourdough and bacon – which we replaced with chorizo coz we cheeky like dat. ? We also ordered their fancy take on eggs benny (with tender pulled pork) and another one of their signature bathtub coffees doused in fairy floss and cream. ATM, they have a brand new Japanese-fusion menu, so if you’re after something different to a regular cafe breakfast, you ought to head on over. ✨?? & if you’ve been before, we wanna hear your thoughts! ?
Neon signage complements the dreamy space, while a painted mural of the iconic Audrey Hepburn illuminates up the far left wall. Everything about Social Hideout has been carefully curated to Instagram perfection.
Being particularly buzzing on the weekends, influencers and brunch-fanatics alike flock to the cafe to get their Social Hideout fix. The menu normally features a number of classic brunch and lunch picks with unique twists. Currently, they offer a recently launched selection of Japanese fusion dishes.

When you can’t decide what’s prettier at @socialhideout… the food or the decor? ? This fabulous brunch spot has got to be one of the most beautiful cafes we’ve seen in Sydney, with neon lit signs and a decadent ceiling full of draping purple flowers ? We were delighted to find out the menu is JUST as fantastic! Try the taro hot cakes or black hot cakes for a gram-worthy treat, or get stuck into the porky mac and cheese with pulled pork, fried shallots and truffle oil for a rich and hearty lunch. So, what do you think of @socialhideout? Have you been and what was your fave thing about it? ?
When we paid Social Hideout a visit the other week to sample their new eats, we had so much fun flicking through the menu. While dishes such as the taro hotcakes and Hikiniku Omuretsu (omlette) sounded a treat, we opted for the Social Breakfast and Char Siu Benedict to start our day.
We also slurped on a signature ‘bath coffee’, which pretty much consists of coffee in a mini bath-shaped cup. Topped with fairy floss and rich cream, it’s both super indulgent and super photogenic!
The Social Breakfast is the cafe’s own version of a classic ‘big breakfast’. It serves up a hearty feast of bacon, avocado, miso mushrooms, roasted herby tomatoes, broccolini, tomato relish, eggs your way and The Grounds sourdough. You can also switch it up to your personal taste by adding extras or taking things out. We added chorizo and smoked salmon.
The Char Siu Benedict is exactly as the name suggests; Eggs Benedict with a Japanese twist. Offering pulled pork, char siu hollandaise, spinach, poached eggs, crispy prosciutto and fat brioche, it’s a rich and flavoursome favourite.
