Danes coffee, 1/271 Military rd, Cremorne. A lot fits into a small space here – there’s tea and coffee on sale, along with a range of bodum and t2 products, coffee courses coming up, and wireless internet for $4 per hour (or $10 for 3 hours).
As you’d expect from the name, there’s black furniture, but a lot of warm, wood tones as well, making for a comfortable, homey ambience. A lone staff member is barista and waitress, on the day I visit.
Coffee is good: i’m fortunate to turn up as a fresh bag of decaf is opened, and it works well with milk to create a little complexity of flavour.
This would be a good place to sit and get some writing done, as long as you’re not distracted by the sound of traffic.
Update: The coffee has changed from Danes, and the wireless access is now free.
