John and I had a 5 hour layover in Sydney, so we decided to leave the airport and take the train to Circular Quay.

I read Playfair Cafe was a local favorite, so we grabbed a couple of coffees and went for a stroll.

After the 15 hour flight from Los Angeles to Sydney, we not only wanted some fresh air, we also wanted needed something real to eat (no offense, Delta).

The Rocks Friday Foodie Market is an open-air fresh food market nestled between the harbour and Harbour Bridge.

And since it was Friday, we were in luck!

Oh my . . . breakfast, lunch, and everything in-between!

Fresh baked bread, mouth watering burgers, homemade preserves, bacon and egg rolls, seasoned cured meats, and traditional gooey gözleme.

I enjoyed inhaled a Spinach and Cheese Turkish Gözleme while soaking in the harbour breeze.

If you have a long layover at SYD, consider hopping on the train and heading to Circular Quay.
