Coffee in Sydney: Cafe Felix, Newtown

I really loved the vibe of this place, open and airy and a very high ceiling. It seemed like the crowd were regulars, and that there was a nice vibe between staff and customers. And if you’ve read my reviews, … Continue reading

Coffee in Sydney: Saint George, Chippendale

I like anything that makes a city more beautiful. And for some reason, this tiny strip of Chippendale between Railway Square and the Central Park shopping complex is particularly ugly. Inexpensive restaurants and a few pubs in the next block … Continue reading

Coffee in Sydney: Ampersand Cafe, Paddington
