5 Coffee Shops Not to Miss in Sydney, Australia
1. Grounds of Alexandria
Undoubtedly one of the blest places to visit in all of Sydney (you could spend hours here), they also have incredible coffee. It’s at the top of my list as it’s not only a coffee stop but also an experience.
Address: 7a/2 Huntley St, Alexandria NSW 2015, Australia
2. Mecca Coffee
With two locations in the city, this minimalist style coffee shop is perfect for an afternoon coffee.
Address: 67 King St, Sydney NSW 2000, Australia
3. Single O Surry Hills
One of the first coffee shops to start in Sydney, they are at the forefront of coffee. It’s a classic and I highly recommend going with espresso here.
Address: 60-64 Reservoir St, Surry Hills NSW 2010, Australia
4. Porch and Parlour
It’s technically a cafe in Bondi but you can also get coffee here. One of the best spots in Bondi to get coffee as it’s right off the beach!
Address: 17-18/110 Ramsgate Ave, North Bondi NSW 2026, Australia
5. Reuben Hills
One more option in Surry Hills since all good coffee seems to be here. I loved how this place was hidden off a side alley and behind a garage door. The lines may be long in the morning rush, but come a bit later to beat the crowds.
Address: 61 Albion St, Surry Hills NSW 2010, Australia
