Llankelly Place Potts Point

Llankelly Place is an under-the-radar, pedestrianised walkway that connects Orwell Street and Darlinghurst Street. Despite housing some of the best cafes, bars and restaurants in Potts Points, many people don't even know it exists! Still, those who do can enjoy diverse eating options, including Japanese, Thai, Italian and modern Australian. Running parallel to Macleay Street, Llankelly Place is only 240 metres long, but it does house a number of venues which all offer excellent vibes for eating out.
