Boxa bar, hurstville

Schibello coffee. Concrete floor inside, pavers outside with a few extra seats: a pleasant spot for a coffee, if you can get past the widescreen TV on the wall that is always broadcasting sport.

Coffee takes a while, the large coffee is very large. Not too bad, though the first sip is a high-point. A little thin, but amply drinkable.

Update: June 16, 2009. Revisited this cafe at the suggestion of a reader: the place has been reworked considerably: there’s still a strong boxing theme, including framed photos of Anthony Mundine, and other boxers. The TV now seems less intrusive – it seems to be mounted higher on the wall, and the volume down from previous visits.

I couldn’t actually see a menu on the tables or behind the counter, but I’m told that the menu has been simplified: there were a few tasty-sounding specials written up on a blackboard in one corner.

The biggest improvement was the coffee: I wasn’t expecting a great deal from the decaf, given that there’s no dedicated grinder, but it was really good: just a hint of sweetness on top of an otherwise pleasant cup.

Worth a re-visit.
