The City Extra Story

CE-PHOTOS (10 of 24)

The City Extra Concept was developed in 1984

We found our customers asked to be able to eat at any time from our full menu, so we went to 24 hour trading and made every menu item available at any time of the day or night. This menu and trading style suited the far more complex life style of Sydneysiders, we decided to cater for everyone So whether you are a shift worker, hospital employee, night club staff, student, opera goer, office worker, police officer or ambulance driver (the list goes on) there is always a place to get the meal you want, when you want it (dinner at 5am? not a problem)

Our iconic newspaper print menu, tables and staff uniform

We looked for themes that related to as many people as possible. The first was the good old newspaper. 30 years ago everybody read a newspaper nearly every day. It was one the major forms of communication. Yes, this was before mobile phones.Building on this theme we added the Superman and the Daily Planet Newspaper cartoon characters. For this reason, we have a full range of cocktails named after the lead characters in Superman. If you look carefully, you will even spot Superman getting changed in a phone booth

We are in the centre of the Harbour City, our customers stop and unwind, they catch up with friends, have a meal or a drink and discuss work, life etc. So the Newspaper theme still stands true today. It is just no longer the newspaper that is spreading the news, its the customers chatting among their friends and colleagues.

City Extra? Where did the name come from?


we wanted it to be a 24 hour meeting place that was always busy we thought the word “City” best described this


Adding items such as fresh bread and all those wonderful smells, , meals made from fresh ingredients on the premises daily, newspapers, flexible dining and always being open. We thought the word “Extra” best covered this

Hence the name CITY EXTRA was born.
