I was visiting Narrabeen (north of Sydney and about 1:15 drive from Sutherland) and stopped for a coffee. Went to the L90 (I'm pretty sure that's what it was called) on the main road, mainly because, other than Gloria Jeans, it was the only cafe I could find. Anyway, it advertised itself as selling the best coffee on the beaches. Not having drunk coffee anywhere else in the area, I can't exactly argue this point. I will say though that I had much better coffee (the best i've tasted yet) at Cafe Jacks in Kensington a couple of weeks ago.
It was comparable to the coffee I had in Redfern on Wednesday though, a small trendy and comfortable cafe near Redfern Park (just up from the corner of Chalmers and Redfern).
The service was good and the people friendly. My daughter ordered a banana thickshake and it was lovely!
I'll be up that way after Easter and will hunt out another cafe. In fact, probably more than one as I'll be visiting Narrabeen three days in a row!
Meantime, in Sutherland, plans are afoot for a coffee festival! I kind of hope the Mayan Coffee stall will be there, but there's no way of knowing just yet. I love their coffee! Anyway, as soon as I can find out who is booked for the festival I'll be sure to pass on the news.
Coffee @ Peace
