Bird Cow Fish, Surry Hills

bird cow fish, surry hills

Single Origin Roasters coffee. 500 Crown St, Surry Hills. I’ve long wanted to have a look at this place, but had the sense that it was mostly for lunch or dinner. After seeing their stall at Eveleigh Markets, though, I realised that breakfast was an option, and so went to visit.

Looking at the menu, some of the mains are in the mid-$30 range: as a result, the decor is suitably high brow. This corner is the “espresso bar” and the rest of the place is the main restaurant, with even more upmarket place settings.

The decaf is really pleasant: it’s a little nutty at first, and the milkwork is really smooth. It’s better in the drink-in configuration: – the takeaway I had was a little less stand-out.
