Bean and Berry
Time Out says
Redfern is home to another awesome coffee spot
Brews and toasted bagels from Coffee Tea and Me have long powered the mornings of Redfern locals, but there's a new kid on the block and they're bringing lamingtons, cinnamon scrolls, and small batch beans with them.
Bean and Berry is situated in a former convenience store on the corner of Pitt and Redfern Streets, and this sunny café is already making fast friends with the neighbours thanks to strong, velvety espresso made using Leftfield Coffee Roasters beans – Marrickville's capacity for micro-roasters knows no limit. Need a sugar rush to clear the hump day haze? LusciousKiki are delivering lamingtons each day so lock down a pillowy red velvet or orange and rose water coconut-rolled cakelet to brighten the dreariest winter's day.
If you need more access points for Oregano Bakery's cinnamon scrolls you're in luck – they're served here, too. Sensible and savoury breakfast options include slow roasted chickpeas on toast, shredded haloumi with olives and tomato on sourdough, a bacon and egg roll that comes with spinach and cheese or a winter stew. Small bars may be pulling the nighttime crowds to Redfern, but its coffee game is getting stronger by the day. Welcome to the neighbourhood, guys.
