136 Willoughby Road, Crows Nest, NSW, 2065


No time for chit chat but really need a coffee? This is the place for a quick fix.

Fabrik is a compact cafe, but has everything you need for a coffee and snack on the run. The menu hosts a variety sandwiches and muffins, and the prices are reasonable.

My espresso is served in an instant, and a burnt-toffee aroma wafts from the cup. The shot delivers a mild berry flavour with sharp acidity that pierces the palate. A macchiato to follow is artistically stained with a little love heart — no plain old dollops of froth here! A velvety crema with lots of little bubbles sits atop a robust body, and the aniseed aftertaste lingers enjoyably.

As if to pre-empt my review, the barista asks how it was — which is always a good sign. And the coffee lives up to the good service.

    I walked past at least half a dozen cafes that were doing a roaring trade on a busy Saturday morning to get here because of the review. The bloke running the show was more interested in reading the paper. Not again.

    This review was done prior to the previous owner selling the business, as it was a very busy place with quality coffee and good friendly service.
