One Six Nine Cafe: Sydney's Best Cafe Opening Soon, Randwick (18 June 2010)

169 Alison Road, Randwick NSW 2031

New cafe on the way

It's a bold statement to claim "Sydney's Best Cafe" but time will tell for this new cafe in the making still to be opened, located right next door to Tum's Thai — perhaps in Randwick to start with. The owner is aspiring to have a quality cafe with great food and staff serving the local community with an emphasis on sustainability ie 'paddock to plate' promoting quality, traceability and freshness. There'll also be fair-trade organic coffee and free range eggs. The proposed opening is around late July to early August if all goes well. I look forward to seeing what prevails and I hope they make a good big breakfast with some decent hash browns like Baffi & Mo Espresso, coffee like Pigeon and hot chocolate like Caffé Due Mondi so I don't have to travel so far.

Hmmmm ... Sydney's best? We should all turn up with a notebook and a red marker.

Adrian @ Food Rehab said...

Yes, hopefully they live up to the signage :) Let us know it goes.

Anna said...

That's a big call. A big call with big expectations!

By the time they open, the sign will be removed from the window, so who will remember their bold claim? We will! Hehe.

hi mademoiselle délicieuse, time will tell but i think it's more like the best cafe in randwick. it's all in the marketing hehe

Hi All,

I am the owner of the soon to be open Cafe above, Yes it is a bold statement I agree, but I also agree with the above comment "reach for the stars reach the moon" no use saying I'm gonna be another mediocre Randwick Cafe...Randwick needs something different, something with quality food, GREAT Coffee, and a place to feel welcome. Will I be the best in Randwick? Absolutely! Will I be the best in Sydney we will see!

Hope to see you all there! Opening day somewhere around August 5.
