Una’s café restaurant originally opened for business 36 year ago. A New Zealand lady, named Una, began operating Una’s cafe at 286 Victoria Street, Darlinghurst.
She served very simple meals, such as tinned spaghetti with toast and canned beverages. The rent was $25 and was paid with the proceeds from the jukebox. A cup of coffee cost 25 cents.
Annie from Austria took over after 18 months and changed it to an Austrian style café with no menu, serving just one freshly cooked meal every day.
After a few years Annie moved to 338 Victoria Street, Darlinghurst. Here the menu developed and became more varied, while retaining the Austrian theme.
In 1995 a Dutch - Austrian couple took over and acquired the shop next door. This doubled the size of the restaurant, and (tasteful) renovations have resulted in the great restaurant it is today.
In 2000 Pieter and Geert took over, within a few years they extended the theme to include two other restaurants, one at Double Bay and the other on Broadway.
The atmosphere of all Una’s restaurants is casual but professional. Our team is highly qualified, with most of them having trained in hospitality, either locally or overseas.
Our home-style menu has been inspired by the foods and flavors of Austria, Germany, Switzerland and Hungary. The old-fashioned European recipes and methods used result in delicacies, which are reasonably simple but always high in taste and quality.
To complete your dining experience, we serve a range of imported beers and spirits, including our famous schnapps.
For your convenience we are open 7 days a week.
