I like that I can get a coffee almost area in Sydney that I think is better than coffee abroad. You get coffee art, which is essential, really, and it’s super tasty.
I had to kill some time waiting for a package at the Australia Post Office at Whitlam Square (I’ve never understood which part if the square part), where Oxford Street meets Hyde Park. Considering there aren’t any libraries around, or really, any spacious cafes, it’s pretty good that there’s a cafe in the lobby of this building at which you can sit inside or outside of it; and it’s bright and airy, and there are tables and you can hang out, as I did, for an hour and not be bothered.
And the coffee was delicious. It surprised me that it was robust and savoury, an earthy tone but not burnt; not like, say, my favourite creamy and milky lattes at Single O, but nice for a change. And while the building is pretty corporate, this cafe has a nice neighbourhood, casual feel to it.
