Single O coffee. 38 Moore St, Austinmer. I wasn’t sure what to expect from a new place in Austinmer, but I’m glad I made the journey. On Tuesdays, this place is closed, and it’s worth going the extra distance to Thirroul and visiting Buck Hamblin (and in fact I did – about a 20 min walk), but when they’re open, you can get excellent coffee in this place. You need to get up pretty early to see the place this empty:
Inside, it reminds me of At All and Sundry – the furniture is from a different era to the staff, but is homey and comfortable.
Lots of reclaimed timber, a big kitchen and coffee area, and fresh muffins if you’re early enough!
The espresso comes out in one of these single-O handmade cups (on sale at the counter).
When I decide to split the avocado toast with my son, they offer me an extra piece (three instead of 2), and we end up sharing 50-50.
But it’s when I order a pour-over that their work really shines. They take their coffee seriously, and it comes across in the product.
And their logo. It’s a beautiful (if hard to photograph) gilded likeness of their store.
Looking forward to my next visit!
