I am a bit of a coffee snob, and I just thought I would mention a couple of my favourite short black makers. There is a lot of cafes in the cbd, but most are mediochre at best.
Single Origin Reservoir st Surry Hills. Crazy bastards but nice organic food and coffee
and a new one in near town hall Qube at 137 Bathurst st (near Pitt) . Coffee and chocolates and breakfast. I had a chilli chocy and a macadamia one. Nice couple running it too. Give em a try.
