There's a reason why there's always a queue to get a coffee here, and the muffins are really good too - we had a berry muffin that was actually really loaded with berries, how refreshing.

A brilliant little cafe, with a real personality and friendly warm service. I never eat here, but just come to get my morning coffee. Sydney has a very high standard of coffee, and this is one of the best coffee's in town. And believe me, I've looked around. Sit outside and people watch, whilst your mind runs wild on that... More

Every time I walk past Gnome it is packed, great for them not so good for me. It was Friday lunchtime and walking past noticed a spare table, we quickly ducked in and grabbed it!! I can see now why it's always full. The coffee was beautiful and my pulled pork burger delicious! Definitely be going back, provided a can... More

Delicious, good quality ingredients, great coffee and friendly, attentive service. We were stoaked to come across this spot on a Sunday morning when wandering Crown St looking for a brunch spot during a weekend away in Sydney. Gnome didn't disappoint!

Great little cafe amongst the many on crown st. Had no issues getting an outside table for Monday lunch. Service friendly and swift. Food great. Fresh and full of flavour. Coffee great! Cinnamon cronuts would have been my only average part. Was still ok, but found brewtown much better. Loved this little place and with so many food and coffee... More

I couldn't believe my luck! This cafe still has the perfect combination of very good coffee, fresh quality dishes, in an unpretentious space. The blackboard menu is cramped with choice and difficult to pick a favourite dish. I love their blueberry bagels.

A reliable place for a great coffee on busy Crown St, where a good coffee can sometimes be hit and miss. Nice little corner spot with comfy seating, friendly staff and consistently good food.
