When it comes to coffee, Sydney doesn’t play around.
But did you know some of the best cafes in Sydney with locally roasted coffee are hiding in Potts Point?
Some of the best cafes in Sydney can be found in Potts Point – often next to some of the best bars.
That’s the beauty of living here – everything is at your doorstep. Whether you’re craving a great, locally roasted coffee or a cleverly concocted cocktail.
With a bohemian feel not unlike the streets of Soho, Potts Point hosts an inspiring mix of individuals who don’t want to sacrifice a great cup of coffee for their vibrant lifestyle. Now we’ve uncovered a few of their favorites.
The best coffee for: the coffee purists
New kids on the block Primary Coffee Roasters made their debut on Ward Avenue in October, setting up a shrine to satisfy the most dedicated coffee-lovers. Denoted by a simple monochrome sign and brick facade, this caffeine haven offers a look into a premium coffee roaster that boasts certified organic blends.
Just a few steps away from the heart of Potts Point, the stark white and blonde oak interiors of Primary are complemented by shiny chrome appliances and the roasted exteriors of Penny Fours pastries. Owner and coffee guru Dan Kim opened to rave reviews for Primary’s modern aesthetic and authentic brews, cementing its standing as an emerging local favourite.
The best coffee for: the cold brew connoisseurs
Located a few steps away from Macleay Street, Room 10 in Llankelly Place embraces it Melbourne-esque laneway vibes in the exposed brick interiors and its dedication to a well-loved cold drip.
Having recently undergone a face-lift, there’s one thing that hasn’t changed – the quality of the Mecca coffee. This hole in the wall espresso bar stands by its minimalist design features and lets its seriously good cold drip sing. And they’re not shy about their smashed avo either.
The best coffee for: the stylish, puppy-toting shoppers
On the border of Potts Point sits Uliveto, an ode to long breakfasts and lunches spent with both furry and non-furry friends.
This dog-friendly Pott Point cafe offers a sun-drenched retreat sure to soothe your senses after a long day hitting the boutiques or the puppy park. Plus, your stomach won’t be left wanting, with a menu of Mediterranean-inspired meals accompanying their Mecca coffee.
The baristas at Uliveto even add artistry to the excellent aroma in the form of curious latte art, creating everything from flowers and ferns to faces.
The best coffee for: the local brunch lovers
Located just off MacLeay Street, Joseph Hyde proudly serves up Double Roasters coffee along with a seasonal, all day menu. Much to a brunchers delight, owner Lou Hunt sources fresh local produce to dictate the tempting selections available.
The long tables invite you to settle in with good friends and a great cup of coffee. Plus, the friendly staff will be inviting you to come back again and see what’s on offer next week.
The best coffee for: “I take my coffee with a side of fun”
Staying true to the vibrancy eccentricities of Potts Point, Mug Life on Bayswater Road serves up it’s awesome coffee with a side of giant basketball murals and pink-hued hamburgers. But, if you’d rather something sweet to go with your brew, you can also dig into a selection of Dr Dough doughnuts.
With rustic interiors, cozy booths and a sun-catcher courtyard, this hip spot mixes laid back hospitality with fast-paced food trends. We’d recommend recharging with a smooth roast before returning for a burger and beats later in the night, before hopping over to some Potts Point bars.
The best coffee for: escaping the workday grind
Located in the heart of Potts Point along Macleay Street, Zinc Cafe is the perfect Potts Point cafe to offer you caffeinated refuge before starting your day or stepping out for a mid-afternoon pick-me-up.
When you step off the bustling street you’re greeted with that captivating aroma that promises only good things. Serving the finest seasonal beans from Grand Cru Coffee, Zinc is the perfect spot to host your mid-week lunches and long-awaited catch ups. And, this is one of my everyday favourites as it’s right across the road from our office! Our team also like Gypsy Espresso and Coffee, Tea & Me.
