“Good coffee”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 10, 2013 via mobile

On several occasions family members have chosen this place for breakfast when we are in Sydney. The coffee is consistently good and family members rate their chocolate milkshakes very highly. Do not find the food anything special but it is fresh and tasty and a little over priced on some items. There is both indoor and outdoor seating. Though the outdoor seating is really in a cement lane at the side of the shop, or on the front pavement.
Have never experienced a problem with the service. It has always been friendly and efficient.

“Great coffee !”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2013 via mobile

This is our go-to brekky place. The wait isn't too long if you get there before 10am which is the norm for Sydney cafes.

We've never had a bad coffee here. Tried the AA Indian blend this morning with a smoky chocolate flavour on the finish. Perfect.

The organic poached eggs on sourdough are always a winner although now that I've cut out bread I asked for scrambled eggs, only to be told they only make poached eggs. Why oh why Double Roasters? There's no way you can eat poached eggs without bread to sweep up the runny yolk. So I resorted for the fruit and yogurt bowl which was simple and nice but didn't quite hit the spot since I was looking forward to eggs.

Hopefully they'll update their menu. Still going back for their fantastic coffee :)

“Service non-existant!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 14, 2013

"Hi guys! I'll be with you in a minute"...sat ourselves down after 3 minutes. Dressed in bright red. Promptly ignored for the next 5 minutes, table next to us attended to, cleaned...and still we were ignored. So we left. Shame as we had been here previously and were looking forward to a repeat. Yes well. No thanks. Never again.

“Double roasters are double slow”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2013 via mobile

Service just did not seem to be working the day we went. Staff were forgetful and took a long time to get menus. When we got coffee it was cold. After 20 minutes with the menu we decided to get the bill instead of ordering breakfast. It was a shame as it has good presence.

“My new local”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 9, 2012 via mobile

As a breakfast destination Double Roasters is one of those cool places you take friends that come to town. It has a "this is my local" feel and the staff are always helpful and inviting. The coffee is great every time. Despite the lack of scrambled eggs on the menu the poached eggs are adequate and enjoyable. The menu is well considered and everyone appears to enjoy it. All in all, you won't be disappointed.
