Short Black espresso bar, Penshurst

Schibello coffee. In a suburb that has a dearth of cafes, short black has managed to pick up a few business awards. Simple, muted colours, a glossy wooden floor, wooden chairs indoors for around 30, and plastic and metal outdoor seating for another 16. There’s a choice of cakes in a glass display, and a number of all-day breakfast options if you miss the 11:30am breakfast cutoff.

Coffee is ground in large batches, not to order, and presents well, though there’s no latte art. It’s a good, drinkable temperature, and though no particular flavours demand to be noticed, it’s a perfectly drinkable cup.
