Hours: Mon-Fri 6:30am-4pm, Sat 7:30am-3:30pm We are a Sydney-based roaster and have a cafe in Surry Hills that some lovely folks have gone so far as to call 'legendary'. Our coffee is responsibly sourced and for the most part responsibly consumed. We are driven. Which could have something to do with the amount of coffee we consume. We aim to inspire coffee passion and exploration, to raise the bar and have customers who don't mind that we're a touch nuts. Our quality standards are uncompromising. For all our joking around, we take the coffee, food and service seriously.

Arguably Sydney's Best Coffee?

I say arguably because some may disagree. To me it's the best. Food, service, the rest just as spectacular. Love love love this place and have yet to see anywhere that can de-throne it Sydney wide.

This place never makes a bad coffee. They have a sit down cafe option or a takeaway stand for those in a rush. It's worth the trip for the coffee

The guys here are all too happy to oblige your coffee request. A trend I've noticed with newer, funkier cafes these days is the genuine interest in creating the customer's perfect coffee- to the point where they'll make it again if you don't like it. Well I loved my latte just fine and my pineapple chilli Bircher hit the spot.... More

Superb coffee & the banana bread with espresso butter was delicious. This place is certainly one of my favorites, it's simply the best in town!!

On my last full day in Sydney I decided to try this cafe after reading quite a few good reviews of the coffee. So I had high expectations and the coffee lived up to them! The coffee was just divine and even if you are just the area for a little while, I recommend even just stopping by and having... More

Went there on a sat morning just before flying home. Staff were friendly, and there was ample tables spare. Wife ordered a coffee which was strong and well made. I ordered a smoothie which they don't do ( though the waitress did say the place across the road made good ones - which was honourable of her!). I ordered a... More

So on two out of three occasions I have had a good coffee from here. My first from the take away window was a regular flat white. It was weak and milky. The second a day alter was a large strong flat white very early at the cafe and it was good. Third was a sit down regular strong flat... More

My very first Australian flat white experience. And it was pretty good! It even comes with a cute little design. It was definitely WAY better than my other (and only) flat white experience - a Starbuck's in NYC. (yeah.......) Our server was cool and patient. I wasn't familiar with all the different styles of coffees but he was happy to... More

We went there for lunch and had an excellent coffee followed by the pork belly lunch. Both were excellent and really good value for money for such a place in Sydney. Really close to central railway station. Great little spot. Service was also excellent!

Menu was very interesting indeed and the food was delicious. Prices are fair, but expect to wait for a table if you attend during popular periods. Only minor complaint is the lack of space and the portion sizes. Fine for the ladies, but the guys left hungry.
