Golden Cobra coffee. 281 Clarence St, Sydney. Takes its name from the history of the building – an old police station.
What used to be the offices of IMG at the turn of the century has been transformed into a little design arcade, gaffa gallery and cafe. It’s a little gem of a space for finding the work of emerging creatives.
It has a bathroom in the back of the building, very elegantly appointed, though missing the all-important hand-drying facilities.
The crowd are office workers, more women than men on this particular visit.
Because of the type of fit-out, there are a couple of little rooms with tables, and a 4-storey high glass-ceilinged atrium with great natural light.
Coffee – decaf is ground to order – is really good as I’m increasingly coming to expect from golden cobra. The staff know about coffee and are happy to chat.
Well worth a visit. Come for the coffee, stay for the gallery.
