Coffee Alchemy coffee (coffee and a yarn blend). 413 King St, Newtown. A relatively new arrival on the Newtown scene, the point of difference for this cafe is their wool theme.

If you want to know how one of the most prolific Christian book reader/reviewers online works through each book on his list, have a read of How Tim Challies Reads a Book. For no extra charge, here’s an unrelated list of 100 books to read for an education.
