A small alleyway cafe close to Central contains a fusion Vegetarian cafe and restaurant, containing Thai dishes alongside their coffee. It’s worth the experience, with their menu possessing a unique blend of the two. If you’re up for it, they’ve even got Thai milk tea gelato.
Gumption by Coffee Alchemy
Located through some Sydney sightseeing in The Strand Arcade on Pitt Street, Gumption is known for its aromatic coffee. With high chairs in the heart of the historic mall, the atmosphere is extremely enjoyable by yourself, and also with a group.
Pablo & Rusty’s
Just around the corner from Town Hall, this location serves single origin espressos in a fairly convenient location, having some cosy and relaxing vibes to accompany even better coffee. Not only do they have a location in the CBD, however, they’ve got another store located down the road from the Sydney Olympic Park in case you need your P&R fix during IEM.
Uncle Tetsu’s Angel Garden
While Uncle Tetsu’s Cheesecake is available around the world, the Angel Garden is unique to Sydney as a maid themed cafe serving the famous cheesecake. Beneath the main store in Regent Place, the cafe can be found with seating offered to enjoy the coffee and dessert, the atmosphere set by the hits of Japanese idols playing in the background.
With a convenient location just above Town Hall Station, Workshop Espresso is one of the most commonly names uttered when ‘Sydney’ and ‘Coffee’ are in the same conversation, with some of the best coffee in Sydney. Although there aren’t many seats inside, it’s only a mere stroll away from Pitt Street and George Street.
