Shenkin Espresso Bar Glebe
Time Out says
Get you daily coffee fix from an Inner West institution
Like its Newtown counterpart, the Glebe espresso bar by Shenkin has a clear focus on coffee. They offer the speciality blend – a balance of bold caramel notes with delicate stone fruit flavours and a smooth milk chocolate finish – beside filter coffees, affogatos and fruity frappés.
The family-run joint on Glebe Point Road is just two doors down from Shenkin kitchen, but they’re happy to match your morning coffee with housemade cakes and pastries. For a really good (and portable) time, grab a bubka in a cup. It’s a wonderfully flaky, layered chocolate treat that’s like a winter-friendly ice cream.
They’re open 6.30am-4pm, to catch early-morning commuters and get you through the final few hours in the office with an afternoon brew. Don’t forget to bring a reusable vessel for a 50-cent discount on your daily cuppa.
