Autentica is a little slice of Italy found in the heart of Paddington providing Italian paninis, pastries and excellent espresso.
Found on Given Terrace, this quaint cafe features red and white checkered tablecloths and eclectic decor like neon pink flamingos and a coffee sack ceiling.
Breakfast fare includes avocado on sourdough with feta, served along with muffins, almond croissants and delicious nutella croissants stuffed with nutella, whipped cream, fresh berries or banana.
Lunch options consist of Autentica's signature sandwiches - Italian paninis filled with the likes of prosciutto, provolone, truffle cream and spinach - and homemade lasagne.
Drink wise, there's Dimattina coffee, Italian hot chocolate, chai lattes, milkshakes, smoothies, cold pressed juices and Italian soft drinks such as Chinotto.
Autentica is fully licensed. Join Fabio and crew on Fridays from 2-6pm for Happy Hour with Italian beer and wine on offer, as well as classic Italian cocktails like Negronis, Aperol Spritzes and Espresso Martinis.
