Think café, milsons point. Primo coffee. I’ve often walked past this galley-style cafe: kitchen down one wall, seating down the other side. There’s art on the walls, and classical music playing (though the noise of coffee-making drowns it out some of the time). Coffee is very hot, and though it starts out a little worrying, […]
Chatz corner, hurstville Caffe migliore coffee. Next to a tiny park: more like a patch of grass, really, is this hurstville institution. Salad bar, snacks, sandwiches, and coffee, and a place to sit outdoors – a rare treat in this town. Staff are enthusiastic and happy, though they don’t get my order exactly right. Coffee […]

TJ’s coffee house, Penshurst Piazza d’oro coffee. A little hole in the wall, with a broad coffee menu and a number of food choices. A few small tables and chairs outside, where you can get some fresh air, and watch for your train. Decaf is disappointing: a few technical errors, and no crema to speak […]
Boxa bar, hurstville Schibello coffee. Concrete floor inside, pavers outside with a few extra seats: a pleasant spot for a coffee, if you can get past the widescreen TV on the wall that is always broadcasting sport. Coffee takes a while, the large coffee is very large. Not too bad, though the first sip is […]

It’s never happened before, it probably won’t happen again. I was visiting a cafe I’d never been before, I placed my order, but I didn’t have enough cash in my wallet (I was a dollar short). I searched my bag for stray coins – nothing. I wasn’t sure where the nearest ATM was, or I […]
