Roastworks coffee. 212 Devonshire St, Surry Hills. In what was once a “sly grog shop” in prohibition-era Sydney is a relaxed, elegantly appointed cafe with a menu that it at once simple and fancy.
My decaf long black has great crema (it’s ground to order), and the jaffle – duck and chestnut is delicious: the familiar over-hot at first, easing back to toasted sandwich perfection that makes the waffle such a childhood throw-back favourite.
If you’re peckish, and looking for a fancy take on a classic, it’s worth a visit.
