Barzura Café, Coogee

Primo coffee. 62 Carr St, Coogee. Overlooking the beach, and with Aeroguard on the tables, there’s something particularly Aussie about this place. Seating for probably 60 inside, and another 20-30 outside with a mix of sun and shade. Staff are friendly and helpful, and the water is brought out un-summoned, always a good sign.

Coffee – a latte 3/4 is the unusual coffee choice – takes a little while to arrive. It’s thick, and the right temperature, and pleasant enough: not amazing, and yet hard to fault.
