About Us

The Woods Cafe & Deli was founded by award winning chef Emma Woods in 2011 and made an immediate impression on the local residents of Earlwood and Sydney's inner west as a relaxed and contemporary cafe with fine food, great coffee and easy parking.

Emma Woods, who has worked at many of the top restaurants in Sydney, began her career at Sydney's famous Rockpool restaurant where she won the Josephine Pignolet Young Chef of the Year Award. She went on to work at Rick Stein's The Seafood Restaurant in Cornwall, England as well as Billy Kwong Restaurant in Surry Hills.

After stints as Head Chef at The Light Brigade Hotel in Woollahra and Swell Restaurant at Bronte Beach, Emma has brought her considerable talents as a chef to her Earlwood cafe and delights customers with good fresh flavours all day. We look forward to seeing you here!
