3 Of The Best Coffee Shops: Australia
Recognised equally in its refined coffee culture as it is in its efforts in interior design, Australia truly is the lucky country. In search of perfect design, and of course, the perfect Flat White, we travel from Sydney to Melbourne sharing three of our favourite haunts along the way.
Middlemiss Street, Lavender Bay
Tucked away on the northern approach to Sydney’s Harbour Bridge, Bay Ten Espresso is known as something of a must for the thousands of pedestrians and cyclists who pass through the heritage area each morning. Here, within the buildings soaring walls, a recycled shipping container serves as the hub of this trendy espresso bar defined by raw, honest materials. Dappled concrete walls are punctuated by typography and signage, while bicycle paraphernalia from the neighbouring specialist outfit, The Body Mechanic, trickles through into the interior scheme.
O’Connell Street, Newtown
Housed in a late 19th century warehouse, Brewtown Newtown is described as a hidden gem and a truly unique experience. The interior celebrates the buildings heritage with fixtures and furniture sourced from all over Australia. Here, a mezzanine makes use of the buildings enormous height. While scores of heavy metal beams not only prove a beautiful patination but create a sense of intimacy on the ground floor. A row of enamel pendants in British Racing Green cast a warming glow.
Bridge Road, Richmond
French pastoral with a gentle nod to Melbourne’s industrial past, a simple decorative scheme emphasises the impressive floor to ceiling windows of local independent Fifty Acres. Unfinished brickwork and dark timber beams add dimension while contemporary brass light are a welcome contrast to harder textures and blackened finishes.
