Golden Cobra Coffee. 27 Barr St, Camperdown. Hiding around the corner from Deus Ex Machina is this fun place with a straightforward menu and seating for about 30 between indoor and outdoor. It’s order and pay at the counter, and there’s eftpos.

We arrive too late in the day to see the full menu offering in the cake window, but there are still plenty of tasty choices. There’s a good all-day breakfast menu with a range of eggs-and-bacon options. For more menu coverage, see this review, which is how I heard of the cafe in the first place.

Coffee (a decaf latte) looks fantastic – great milk work and good flavour to start with. The finish is a little disappointing, but in general it’s a solid cup.

If you’re looking for a cheery place to have a meal in an underexplored part of Sydney that’s not too far from Newtown or Glebe it’s worth a look.

  1. Excellent! That coffee looks so good.. thanks for all your wonderful cafe reviews – it gives me a list of places to check out! Wondering if you can also mention in your reviews if the coffee is Fair Trade?

  2. I’ve always loved Runcible Spoon – very cool spot. love the water tap coming out of the wall to help yourself to water!
