Description: 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.

“Best coffee in Sydney with a cool vibe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2012

Best coffee in Sydney, period. A place like this makes me jealous that there isn't half as strong a coffee culture back in Chicago.

The siphon coffee was very good, and so were the lamingtons. Yup, we popped our lamingtons cherry at Single Origins Roasters. The cake was delicious with the perfect texture. This place has all the cool vibe and I just wished I could hang out there all the time.

“Incredible”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2011

For coffee snobs this place is a must. Keep your eyes peeled, you might walk straight past it as we did. A little hidden gem, this place will draw you back again and again. Shame it's not open every day of the week!

“Delicious breakfast while stopping over”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2011

Whilst on a trip from Melbourne to Newcastle recently, we stopped in Sydney in order to get a train to Newcastle. I asked amongst my online communities for breakfast recommendations near Central Station, and Single Origin got the vote.

We couldn't miss it when we walked into Reservoir St, there was a line for the take away section, there were tables filled with diners, and people just hanging about doing what ever they were doing, waiting, chatting, nursing a coffee..

We managed to score a table outside (we ignored the drizzle that occasionally refreshed us) and were promptly served. We ordered beans, the smoked trout bagel and the beef hash, with coffee and a chai. We loved them all. Delicious food, apparently the coffee was great, I loved my chai. The cost wasn't crazy and all in all, that brekkie was the best I've had in a cafe for a while. Next time I'm up in our fair northern sister city, I'll be returning to explore the menu a bit more.

“Great food, awesome service.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2009

What a great find. A cosy little street cafe that offers great food, great coffee and excellent service. Our party of 4 started off with coffee's and went on to enjoy a late lunch. We all selected different meals from the menu and we all tried each others choice, they were all fantastic with the standouts being the Ocean Trout and the Ratatouille pie- they were very generous servings too for the price (around $15 ea). We topped it all off with more great coffee and a selection of sweet treats that were enjoyed immensley as we watched Friday afternoon pass us by in Surry Hills.
