Nice lahmacun and coffee. Various Lebanese pastries and sweets. They also stock nice Middle Eastern groceries. It is a nice cafe to visit for a coffee and snacks.

The A1 is an institution. Run by a Lebanese Maronite Christian family for years, its mixture of cheap and tasty "pizza", kitsch decor, dirt cheap coffee, and specialist groceries - along with unpredictable local color from Sydney Road - make this a must-do. Don't expect...More
