Sample Coffee

An amazing espresso coffee bar showcasing brews from top Australian roasters and encouraging customers to try new beans. This hole-in-the wall joint offers very little seating to lounge about. But the decor is lovely, and really, it’s all about the coffee.

Green Heart Espresso

As you’d guess from the name, it’s more of a cafe than a La Locanda-style neighbourhood restaurant. The cafe has some nice accoutrements, from Little Marionette coffee to a clever room by Matt Woods, the designer with Bloodwood in his portfolio.

Great coffee by Alchemy, lots of style, friendly bunch of guys behind the counter. Nice little selection of sweet and savoury treats, as well as a pick and mix style mezza offering.
