Toby’s estate coffee. Shop 11, Bligh st, Kirribilli. A short walk from Milson’s Point station, this tasteful, hole-in-the-wall shop sells a range of breads, freshly ground-to-order coffee, and a variety of french food.
Coffee is well made: a bit hot and delicate at first, but the more you drink it, the more it impresses. Well worth a visit. Note, though, there is no decaf.
Belaroma coffee. Shop 4, 12 fitzroy st, kirribilli. On the east side of the harbour bridge, and indeed with water views from some tables, this indoor : outdoor café is fairly quiet on this friday afternoon. A solid range of menu offerings: breakfast, lunch, even some desserts.
The food takes a long time to come out.
(decaf latte) coffee is smooth, rich in flavour, with a first taste that is a little bitter, but rounds out well. A satisfying cup.
