​Joe Black Cafe @Surry Hills, Sydney

2016-08-18-09-25-51Since we only had a Matcha Latte take away (check out the cup on the table) from the small Cafe Cre Asion, we decided to turn at the corner into Commonwealth Street and landed on Joe Black Cafe which had a good rating on Google.

The cafe was very cozy and warm with a very community feel to it. On one of the walls (where we were seated), there was a drawing of a train map that became a very interesting talking point for its customers.

We especially loved the warm hospitality of the servers as they get around to take our orders, fetched and topped up our tap waters. The whole lively vibe of the place just boosted our level of likeness for Sydney on a whole!

Apparently, this place is good for coffee (and the various types of brewing techniques) and breakfast although they also do sandwiches, pasta, salads, pastries. They are also quite a favourite for take aways, using Deliveroo as their service provider.


We were here for breakfast so we ordered:

  • Eggs Benedict with Smoked Salmon (A$18): Two toasted English muffins with poached eggs and smoked salmon and of course topped with yummy Hollandaise sauce. This was yummiliciously good with the oozing poached eggs and soft muffins.
  • Baby Spinach, Mushroom and Feta Cheese Omelette (A$15): Served with 3 pieces of toast and butter on the side, this omelette was delicious but not spectacular. 🙂
  • Skinny Latte (A$3.50): I had my usual and the coffee tasted normal.
  • Dandelion Latte (A$4): Made with organic certified roasted Dandelion Root, infused with maple and milk and topped with cinnamon, this is a great alternative to chai latte. Wifey has this and she liked it.

We are in love with Sydney 🙂
