83 Foveaux Street, Surry Hills, NSW, 2010
Several coffee-goers are lined up for takeaway, and several more take cosy refuge among the newspapers and magazines. And why not? Le Monde has an inviting atmosphere of bronze furnishings and chocolate-coloured walls.
The food is well priced and made from high-quality, ethical produce. Breakfast is rave-worthy, but only available until noon on weekdays. The lunch menu, while not extensive, consists of salads, pasta and exciting fusion sandwiches -mine contains baked ricotta, caramelised onion, roast capsicum and pesto in soy and linseed bread, and it’s downright sexy.
My espresso has an enticing aroma of roasted nuts; its oily body complements the robust, praline-like flavour. The latte which follows is just as enjoyable, with a velvet consistency¬† and sweet, vanilla taste that stays with me long after finishing. With a changing range of single origins to try; be it in espresso, filtered or Clover form -Le Monde is a cafe to keep coming back to.
