Chrysler café, Pitt St mall, Sydney

Chrysler coffee. The logo here caught my attention: very 1950’s american, and the interior, apart from the overwhelming scents of modern australian cooking, holds onto this.

Two baristas, two coffee machines, lots of seating outside in the lane-way. Staff are a bit indifferent to newcomers, but friendly to regulars, knowing orders and names of the other people in the queue behind me.

Coffee is quite hot, but not too hot, and thin, but not ridiculously so. Its flavour is, sadly, not to my tastes: reminds me of a mass-market blend like primo, rather than having a unique character to it.

  1. I used to work just opposite there, it’s a reasonable place to get coffee. The Bar Venezian is better, as long as you don’t mind a bit of attitude from the staff (owners).
