Golden Cobra coffee. 43 Erskineville Rd, Erskineville. Don’t let this photo fool you – Erskineville Rd, when you’re not visiting on a quiet public holiday Monday, is a busy street. This cafe has a fairly intimate space at the front, with a much larger back room (you’ll find out if you head to the bathroom during a visit) where the longer-form cooking takes place.
Coffee is expertly prepared. In addition to the house espresso (and well-made decaf long-black), there are a range of other options – pour over, cold drip, and cold filter. It’s rare to find a place that takes as much care over both food and coffee, but this is one. Worth revisiting.
