Jack and the Bean coffee. 187 Wilson St, Newtown NSW 2042. I’ve driven past this cafe any number of times over the years – Wilson St is a little-known shortcut to bypass much of Newtown’s slow arterial rd – King St. Finally I manage to call in: there’s the usual Saturday morning crowd out for a coffee, or to catch up on some uni work: the tables are close together, and to get a takeaway coffee, it’s necessary to zig-zag up to the counter.
The decaf is pre-ground, sadly, but still has a pleasant flavour: it looks like a place worth multiple visits to sample the menu. I’ll be back!
Update (thanks /karen/): Hours: Mon: 7am-3pm, Tues-Fri 6:30am-4pm; Sat & Sun: 8:30am-4pm. Kitchen closes at 3pm every day.
