Son of a Baker, Botany (11 Jan 2019)

1545 Botany Road, Botany NSW 2019

Just here for the pastries

They're certainly keeping the cronut alive and well here. Was hoping there'd be dine in for a pastry and coffee fix but it's only takeaway. Located right next to the bus stop though which could be a cheeky seating option. Cronut ($4) was nice the Cappuccino ($3.50) using Zest Specialty Coffee Roasters had a good hit of flavour. $7.50 all up, not the $10 that was accidentally charged when I queried the pricing. I found it a little awkward to look at the pastries with the height of the display but there's plenty of street parking in the area for stopping by. It's just the pastries available here so if you're looking for the dishes you'll need to head to their Sans Souci cafe.

Humm Roasters, North Sydney (3 Feb 2019)

Shop 2B/211-223 Pacific Highway, North Sydney NSW 2060

Ground control to North Sydney

‘Our brand new MODBAR espresso system offers state of the art technology and produces perfectly timed extraction, temperature control and water pressure levels.’

Promising venue for a coffee hit in North Sydney. Cappuccino ($3.70) using the HUMM Milk Blend 34% Colombia, 33% Brazil, 33% Ethiopia has a good hit of flavour and the froth factor is notable. Piccolo ($3.50) is served a bit of the luke warm side but the Hot chocolate ($4) is good. Apple & ginger juice ($7) is nice. Shortstop donuts are on offer but understandably go quickly so get in early to secure your sugar hit. Parking is metered during the weekday shared with clearways in the area but the weekend offers free parking. Service friendly, baristas are passionate and air con will hopefully be sorted in the near future otherwise stick to the outside breeze and watch the traffic go by.
