Si Ord opened Sandinista Leeds in 2002, named after the Clash’s fourth album and Nicaraguan revolutionary party the ‘Sandinistas’, everything about this small and enigmatic bar reflects Si’s non-conformist spirit and complex ethos.

Anvil Coffee Co

Built into Kirribilli Wharf, the cafe is flanked by the waterside suburb’s grand residences on one side and the ever-changing harbour landscape on the other.

Excelsior Jones

It’s in an area so residential that you wouldn’t expect to find a lone café, especially not a really good one. In fact, to pull up a stool at Excelsior Jones you’ve either got to live around these parts, or make a very deliberate trip here, one you wont regret.

Hillsong Church Cafes

From amazing coffee to tasty treats, Hillsong Church Cafe matches the passion of their customers with the quality of our offerings.

Who would have thought that little old Newcastle would one day have its very own super cool bakery in the burbs? Baked Uprising has that industrial warehouse feel to it that you would expect to find walking around Sydney’s Surry Hills, not the sleepy little suburb of Maryville.
