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.

For all our joking around, we take the coffee, food and service seriously.

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.

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.

Handy place to Central Railway Station frequented by bikers and the fitness crowd and inner city workers and local residents. Great coffee is everywhere in Sydney and this place is up there with a good menu.

The staff looks a bit too sophisticated and fussy but is probably due to the fact that they are conscious they serve a very good coffee! This place is very well designed, simple but beautiful! It deserves to be visited, at least once to enjoy the good coffee!

Out of all the coffee places I tried while in Australia, Single Origin Roasters was my favorite. The coffee was so good! The staff was friendly and knowledgeable, and I had the most incredible, velvety flat white here. I also had breakfast here. I tried the banana bread with espresso butter. It was quite delicious. The bread was nicely toasted... More

This place serves simply the best coffee in Sydney. The eggs are good too, but the reason to go is the coffee. There is a takeaway stand next door.

If you think you 'know' coffee, Single O may challenge you, because their baristas really KNOW their stuff! They have a blend to suit every taste and palette. Their different brewing methods range from Espresso, Aeropress, Pour Over and Plunger. If you love coffee, Single O is a real treat. Besides the coffee, the food is also great, which is... More
