Good coffee and very nice staff

Fifi's provides my workday coffee fix. In the mix of other Surry Hills cafes, I find this the nicest coffee in the immediate vacinity. The staff are very friendly and happy, and they quickly learn the preferences of thier regular patrons, along with their name. There is a good mix of sandwiches and... read more

There are so many excellent cafés and restaurants producing high quality coffee on Crown St and Albion St it's difficult to pick a favourite. One of my favourites for takeaway coffee in Surry Hills is Fifi Fouveux simply because the coffee is smooth and fragrant, the staff are friendly and the cafe is unpretentious.

I ventured into Fifi's in need of coffee. The décor and ambience is wonderful, the pressed metal ceiling and deep red wallpaper with the seating give a cosy very French meets Aussie feel. The waitress immediately asked if I wanted a table and I settled in with a cappuccino on the way. The coffee was excellent, a blend that is... More

Went here with a group of friends during Mardi Gras weekend. My dish (vegetarian breakfast) was pretty good in comparison to everyone else's order. The cook seems to get ever single other order wrong in some way. The owner then responded by telling us that he was going to sack the cook, which seemed unprofessional, and considering he took the...

On a particularly humid and blustery day, I ventured into Fifi Foveaux's for relief from the weather, some caffeine, and a place to do some writing. Nestled into a corner with a small table, once the place had filled up I soon discovered it would be difficult to leave, as all the tables had been pushed so closed together in... More

Stopped in for a quick Sunday breakfast, this place has a nice atmosphere and I had heard good reviews. Coffee arrived and was horrible, the coffee was burnt and one of the girls I was with complained and was told that we would not be charged for this. When our food (finally) arrived it was really good, except for the... More

After walking past another restaurant which a friend had recommended, I was lucky to run into this gem for Sunday brunch. While busy, they were able to seat every one right away. The prices are reasonable and the coffee was good. I got the hot cakes which was an excellent pancakes with ice cream and jam on the sides. Overall,... More

Staying in Surry Hills

Neighborhood Profile
Surry Hills
Once regarded as the traditional fashion area, Surry Hills has broadened its appeal. This neighborhood continues to distinguish itself as a shopping destination, offering the best collection of one-of-a-kind boutiques, designer brands and flagship stores in the city. Today, this area has evolved into a hub of media, design and professional services - a colorful and diverse place equally known for its antique dealers, art galleries, cafes and pubs. Strolling down the street on a Saturday morning, you’ll see a mix of students, artists, hipsters and a few all-nighters from Oxford Street, the “Gay Capital of Sydney”. In this vibrant neighborhood you will find bohemian chic and modern style co-existing side by side.
