Umami Coffee. 93 Cronulla St, Cronulla. I’ve been here a couple of times now, in search of somewhere to eat while in Cronulla. And this place fits the bill – they even have high chairs, and bathrooms down the back of the cafe (an unusual feature for the suburb).
It’s an unusual space inside – lots of exposed brick and wire, and the chairs have amazing detail work in the upholstery – all around the cafe’s “Ink” theme.
Their breakfasts are solid: good egg work, and a small, but solid range of choices. Staff are friendly and helpful.
Coffee is surprisingly good: in the town where Grind and other contenders are duking it out for best coffee in Sydney, I didn’t hold out much hope, but the decaf is fresh ground, and a pleasant drop indeed.
