Taking on the challenge of finding great coffee at the Top of Ryde, it seems like this cafe is the obvious choice. Half cafe, half restaurant and half bar (yes… I am great at math), this place seems to offer a relaxed and funky atmosphere. I can image on the weekends it gets packed.
As for coffee, you could look at this cafe as the flagship for Batch – Speciality Coffee Blenders, who I have only seen at a few cafes around Sydney, but where I did find it I was pleasantly surprised. It was a little unfortunate today as it seems that today their single origin was sold out and their cold drip was being saved for the weekend, so it was the house blend for me.
Today the house blend was their Six Ladies, a blend of brazilian, ethiopian and indian coffee, that as a macciato offered a smooth and a little nutty way to start the day. I ended up trying it twice and both times it was creamy and rich in flavour. Not a bad way to start the day.
It also helped that sitting inside the glorious smell of bacon kept wafting through… though I may have to run out of here before I cheat on my diet again…
I was unable to find any #powerwhoring here
There is WiFi here, but I am unsure if it is available/public
