Not to be confused with the original Pourboy Espresso, which was sold off long ago, Sebastian Butler-White's new Southbank venue, filled with natural light streaming in through floor to ceiling glass, is a slick reincarnation of his first CBD coffee Mecca. He's stepped it up with a pretty swanky fitout of high and low, individual and shared tables. The food is uncomplicated and good. Chef's slow-roasted field mushrooms on seedy sourdough with wilted baby spinach and teardrop-shaped poached egg sit beside a cluster of blistered cherry tomatoes and a creamy slick of whipped goat cheese sprinkled with a nutty, sumac laced dukkah.
