Glebe, NSW

Replenish your soul with alternative food and therapies


Glebe is a popular residential area renowned for its New Age vibe. It’s architecturally interesting with its charming mix of workers’ cottages and grand 19th century abodes inhabited by a colourful mix of residents including artists, old time locals and students of Sydney University.

The area is renowned for its array of alternative therapy outlets and quality bookshops and has a good selection of restaurants and cafes. Whilst there is an admirable range of upmarket dining options, the wholesome menus of the cheerful cafés more accurately reflect the essence of the Glebe experience.
