Shop 3/118 Devonshire Street, Surry Hills, NSW
Tables at this popular cafe spill out onto the footpath, but most prefer the standing-room-only option, and order takeaway. The location is central – and close to Central – so there are all sorts of coffee-lovers taking advantage of the sublime Allpress blend.
Although it’s only open on weekdays, it’s a cute space for hanging around if time permits; the warm, chocolaty colours and open kitchen make it inviting and cosy. The tables are small, square and the outside ones are prone to wobbling -but this ‘hole in the wall’ cafe isn’t about decorative equipoise, it’s about the coffee.
The espresso is rich and fruity with hints of raspberry, and the fresh flavour is strong enough to cause tingles. The cappuccino is only slightly mellowed; it still has the undertones of sweet, fruit flavours but with smooth, thick milk. Never mind the wobbly tables -the coffee will keep you upright.
