Workshop Espresso: Coffee, CBD Sydney (24 Feb 2014)

500 George Street, Sydney NSW 2000

Espresso to go

They manage to pack a lot into this hole in the wall style coffee shop on the outskirts of The Galeries. Three baristas, two service and two in the kitchen pretty much matches how many customers can sit around the central service counter. Every little space is valuable and your small table ledge is just wide enough for your coffee, mobile, sweet treat and glass of table water served by young, friendly and energetic staff. My Cappuccino ($4) using Toby's Estate coffee is made well and has an interesting flavour depth. My water is kindly topped up without asking and I'm appreciative of the bag holders available underneath the wall bench to hang my camera bag. This place is popular for a decent caffeine hit and well located for your shopping adventures in the CBD.

PROS: Good coffee, Friendly and efficient service, Reasonably priced menu, Centrally located in CBD, Handbag hooks under wall bench
CONS: Very limited seating and cramped space
MUST TRY: Coffee
VERDICT: For a quick caffeine fix their coffee should serve you well and takeaway seems to be your best option due to limited seating
Passionate barista team

Not much space but apparently worth the lack of comfort.

Always wanted to visit this place too but it's definitely way too busy for me!
