The Grounds Espresso. 10 Little Regent St, Chippendale. Next to the Mercure hotel near Central Station, in prime position to take advantage of foot traffic waiting for a bus is a hole in the wall, that’s big enough to hold a full kitchen.
When I first visited a couple of weeks ago, they were doing a $3 happy hour from 8am-10am, but this has stopped now – they’ve transitioned from Espresso Di Manfredi to The Grounds coffee, and upgraded their espresso machine.
Sadly, their prices are back to a level of being competitive with other nearby providers of coffee, but it’s certainly competing on quality. Worth a look, especially if you have a craving for the Grounds coffee. And they have a dedicated decaf grounder.
