Allpress espresso. 1100 Middle Head Rd, Mosman. From the outside, this looks like an old school canteen building, but it’s much more than that. outdoor and indoor seating, and a space (labelled “bark park”) for dogs to grab a drink of water.
It’s a beautiful place to spend some time (especially outdoors, with a great view of the water). The Sunday afternoon crowd seems to be choosing tea more often than coffee, which seems ominous, but perhaps just reflects the preferences of a crowd who are – in part – from later in life than your average cafe clientele.
Coffee (there’s no decaf grinder in sight) is really nice – the milkwork is good, and the coffee is slightly sweet. There are a few problems with the rest of the takeaway service – seems that the communication amongst the staff could be better. Overall, though, this is a place that’s worth searching out and experiencing.
