6/914 Military Road, Mosman, NSW, 2088
Squirreled away in Mosman (unless you’re a Mosmanite), it’s worth coffee-lovers’ going straight to The Source. A large roaster takes up almost a quarter of the floor space, single origin beans line the walls, and a gleaming Synesso machine sits at the ready accompanied by a Clover. They may serve food here, but The Source feels pleasingly single-minded.
An espresso bar by name, the cafe has plenty of room, with calming snatches of greenery visible through the floor to ceiling windows. There’s a variety of tables and perches available, and few customers linger overlong, so there’s usually a seat.
The espresso is a black beauty, with floral berry notes that are sharp and pronounced. The cappuccino has a gentle malty flavour, with shiny, velvety milk showing the work of an expert barista. They’re both served in elegant unbranded cups, matching the smooth music and classy feel of this most reliable Source.
