about us

Penny Lane bar & cafe

Penny Lane was borne from an idea to make the food experience for staff and students at university tasteful, trendy and relaxing. We opened in 2014 at UTS in Ultimo and we quickly became a popular place for meetings, lunch and private events at our licensed bar. Our catering arm was also received with considerably high regard because of our personal service. We catered for small lunches, corporate events, weekly seminars and conferences for private organisations and for university staff.

Then, in September 2017, we ‘expanded our borders’ and opened our café and bar at UNSW, Kensington. To our staff and regular customers, we became affectionately known as PL2. The premises at UNSW is more modern than the rustic fit out at Penny Lane in Ultimo, but we offer the same high quality food and service.

Our vision

Our vision is to continue offering the same high quality, tasty menu with modern and International cuisine. We want our patrons who want a quick bite to eat or those wanting a sit down breakfast, lunch or dinner to experience the same Penny Lane high standard. This is our ongoing mantra and we look forward to sharing it with you and receiving your feedback.


Images are worth a thousand words and we have plenty of words to say when it comes to beautiful food, catering, functions and events. Pop into our gallery to see some of our favourites and come back later to keep an eye on what’s happening.
