9a Railway Aveune, Wahroonga, NSW, 2076
The Laneway Espresso sits boldly amid a string of cafes and shops in Wahroonga’s Railway Avenue. Its hard to miss with its yellow-and-white theme and pavement seating. Inside, its bright and modern, with artwork neatly displayed on a wall. Thanks to its slanted position, you can perch outside and watch the street come alive with morning coffee hunters – a charming sight as the day begins. The staff are friendly and welcoming, adding to the open and inviting atmosphere.
My espresso makes an impact with a smoky aroma that has a hint of herbs and leather. Its acidity is rounded, developing into bitter cocoa with the sweetness of apricots and peaches. Its body is a little lacking, but does not detract from the rich, earthy aftertaste that lingers. The same flavours are knocked back a few notches in the latte; its a much sweeter and creamier experience. Laneway doesn’t just use good looks to stand out from the crowd – you’ll find a solid cup of coffee here.
