Breakfast is considered one of the most important meals of the day and is definitely a necessity before any of the Blackmores Sydney Running Festival races. Luckily race goers can fuel or refuel at one of Sydney's countless gourmet breakfast spots.

Weekend breakfast in Sydney is considered a religion and nowadays Sydney has a plethora of flexible dining options. From organic green smoothies to gluten-free pancakes, Sydney's wholefood breakfasts are a classic. Enjoy some of the city's finest options below as reward for completing the world's best run:

  • Henley's Wholefoods, Bondi Junction is delighting health junkies and fitness fanatics citywide. On the breakfast front, nourishing maca hotcakes with caramelised banana, shredded nuts and coconut yoghurt is the ultimate healthy morning pick-me-up
  • Bread & Circus Wholefoods Canteen, Alexandria is a foodie precinct that leaves café goers feeling nurtured, well fed and recharged. The menu changes daily but keep an eye out for the cloud of eggs floating in baked ricotta, the morning jumble of bircher or granola, and the breakfast with Gwyneth specialty
  • O-organics, Surry Hills uses all organic products and offers a number of vegan options. For the egg fan, the one-egg omelet with herbs, chutney and crumbled goats cheese is a must-have. Equally excellent for lunch, this place is a hit for late riser
