Campos coffee. 99 Elizabeth st, Sydney. This is a by-the-numbers cafe for the city: the usual suits as customers, a standard issue menu with some specials – the breakfast seems cheaper than most – and some friendly-enough staff.
Coffee, though, is really good: though the barista doesn’t seem to be trying hard to tamp the coffee, she’s efficient, and clearly knows her job well. Coffee is a good temperature for immediate drinking, and has a sweet, lingering aftertaste.
The cafe would be a good spot for writing, there’s about the right amount of noise and activity to keep you from feeling like you’re in a library, but not so much that you’re struggling to concentrate.
