Local café, North Sydney

Giancarlo coffee. Cnr walker and mount st, north sydney. Recently refurbished, this place is going after the suits: wineglasses on the table, and a lot of specials on the menu.

Coffee – the decaf is ground to order – is hot, and there’s a lot of air in the milk – it feels unusually light. Once it’s cooled down, it’s the standard grinders cup: a solid, but unremarkable coffee.
