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.

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.

We stopped by Workshop Espresso on a sunny, busy weekday and while it's pretty much just hole in the wall, it was packed with people queuing to be served. The service was really quick and efficient and I didn't have to wait too long for my coffee frappe. The frappe itself was probably the best I've ever had. The coffee tasted extremely fresh and delicious, and blows all other coffee chain frappes out of the water. I wish Sydney wasn't on the other side of the world and I would frequent Workshop Espresso weekly, just for the coffee frappe. Great value for money too.

Loved the coffee, the food and the vibe. Made me feel I was back in Rome. You can either "take way" (or to-go) or sit at a little bar. The staff was amazing efficient and always got the right coffees to the right people The muffins were very tasty. Also had chicken focaccia sandwiches. The cafe marks down remaining food late in afternoon so you know it's fresh.

I haven't eaten here, but it's worth a visit for a decent coffee. I love the vibe here too and the pricing is on par with other places with terrible coffee!
