    The perfect local cafe, with food that straddles the line between interesting and comforting perfectly. Eggs done reliably well. Consensus pick for coffee in the area by the locals.

    Definitely the best coffee in Petersham, they use their own blend from Coffee Alchemy. The daily tart is usually a good bet for choice, but all their food is great

    This is hands down the BEST place in Petersham for coffee! Enjoy with a slice of the orange polenta cake and die happy.

    Best smashed avocado so far in Sydney. Great coffee, relaxed vibe and friendly service. Plus the space is cool too.

    Slow poached eggs with roasted mushrooms on brioche sends me to heaven. Good service and speed to boot.
