Coffee is the clear focus at Newtown's version of Sydney’s popular Shenkin cafés. The espresso bar offers their speciality coffee blend – a balance of bold caramel notes with stone fruit and smooth milk chocolate – beside a large selection of sweet and savoury pastries.
The family-run joint will match your morning coffee with a delightful chocolate croissant, or a more adventurous signature burekasim, like a crumbly cheese and spinach pastry or one hosting eggplant and chilli in its flaky casing. There’s also filter coffee, affogatos and fruity frappés available if you want to mix up your coffee routine.
They’re open from 6.30am-5pm, to catch early risers and anyone looking for an afternoon pick-me-up on King Street. Don’t forget to bring a reusable vessel for 50 cents off your daily caffeine intake.
