Caffe Di Gabrielle. Shop 13, 425 Bourke St, Surry Hills. Lots of natural light from the giant glass walls: outdoor seating is on stools, with plenty of space heaters if you need them. A mixed crowd of well-to-do inner city dwellers sample coffees and pastries (the chocolate brownies seem especially popular). The pastries, which look really impressive, appear to be made on site.
Decaf is ground to order. Sweet, slightly earthy decaf latte. If you’re in the neighbourhood, drop in.
