Lavazza coffee. Devonshire St tunnel exit of Sydney Central station. This is the kind of place that I normal move straight past on my way to wherever else I have to be. Likewise, I’ve had so few positive experiences with Lavazza coffee that I haven’t reviewed a place that sells it for quite a while.
Nonetheless, the sign above the door – “Best bacon and eggs in Sydney” and “Famous for our variety of jaffles” – made me curious, so I thought I would give it a try.
As you can tell from the photo, this is something of a takeaway food store: in addition to some gum and other snacks, there’s a full sandwich bar, a choice of jaffles, and deep fried foods. The bacon and egg roll is perfectly fine, better than you might fear from a place with a deep fryer as a major cooking implement, but I don’t think “Best bacon and eggs” should be handed over quite so easily.
It’s a nutty, flat decaf with no grinder in sight but you can’t beat it for proximity to the station!
