Amongst the bustling metropolis of Sydney there are countless cafes and coffee shops to choose from. When you are presented with so many options it can be hard to know what to choose. We've taken some of the guesswork out of the process for you. Enjoy a coffee and slice of cake at one of these great stylish cafes.
Will & Co
If you're in Bondi during the weekends, you simply must stop by this sort-of-secret coffee establishment. Only open on Saturdays and Sundays, it's located at 3 Hall Street but is notoriously difficult to locate. Luckily, after you manage to track down the hidden doorway, the coffee and ambiance is well worth it. Enjoy a tasty breakfast or midday snack and enjoy the outdoor environment. You never know just what will be happening when you stop by, as the baristas test out new brews. You might just discover a new favourite drink. Don't stop by this cafe if the weather is bad, however. As it's only an outdoor space, they don't open if the weather's poor.
This is another somewhat hard-to-find cafe that's more than worth the search. With a New York city street feel, you'll find it on the corner of Tank Stream Way and Bridge Lane in central Sydney. Its interior is full of eye-catching murals and dim atmospheric lighting, and the staff are always friendly and helpful. There's a great range of delicious coffee here and it's open for breakfast, lunch and dinner with a tasty menu. If you're eager to sit down and enjoy the cafe's ambiance, try to arrive at an off-peak time as seating and space is limited.
Hole in the Wall
The little Hole in the Wall is a must-visit thanks to its tasty Allopress espresso and its famously delectable sandwiches. Fresh ingredients packed between artisan bread makes for a wonderful lunch, and there's a great variety of salads and sweets too. Open from Monday to Friday, make your way to 229 Macquarie Street to find this hidden wonder. Whether you're after a morning pick-me-up for a sweet afternoon treat, the expert baristas and staff will exceed your expectations. One of the biggest drawcards of the weekend is the Green Market, which features over 100 exhibitors. Here, you can try organic beer and wine, as well as plenty of fresh food and produce. Gardening and building products and ethically-produced clothing will also be on offer, while environmental campaign groups will be there to engage in discussion.
