“Best Coffee in Sydney!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

Amazing little hole in the wall that do fantastic coffee and blended ice coffee or chai.

Always a queue whenever I walk by; might not be the most ideal if you're in a rush to get to work in the morning but it's definitely worth the wait!

Haven't really sampled the food menu but it does look very good, loved the Coffee Affagato!

“Best coffee in Sydney”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

Such an unassuming little place but I come here every time I'm in Sydney. Consistently great coffee, friendly staff and quick efficient service with a smile. Worth joining the queue on the footpath.

“Small Place BIG Surprise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2013

They say good things come in small packages, The Workshop Espresso must be one of the smallest coffee lunch outlets in the World. Sort of accounts for the long Queues but not just that the coffee is to die for. And then their food menu is amazing Mouth watering presentation and so fresh. Whist it is hard in Australia to find a bad coffee this place makes every other coffee place look second rate. Don't walk by if there is a line it is too good to miss.
Oh, and last but very important the staff are way beyond expectation in their skills, friendliness and cleanliness.
