The caffeine trail: Darling Harbour’s 9 best coffees
To make sure you only drink the creme de la caff, we’ve put together a guide to the Sydney cafes and restaurants pouring the best coffee in Darling Harbour.
Sydney is home to the best coffee in Australia hands down (in our humble opinion).
If you’re looking for a coffee fix in Darling Harbour, you’ll be spoilt for choice with dozens of cafes and restaurants serving punchy espressos and silky flat whites just right.
Edition Coffee Roasters
Edition Coffee Roasters take their coffee seriously. They roast high-quality beans fresh out back in their Japanese/Scandi inspired cafe in Darling Square and use multiple brewing methods to highlight the unique flavours of each bean. We’ve heard it said that they make the best coffee in Sydney but we’ll leave that to you to decide.
Local artworks cover the walls and the clicks and hisses of the espresso machine fill the air at Auvers Cafe. This French inspired cafe only serves coffee made from the highest quality blends and single origin beans sourced from the best coffee producing regions of the world.
Haven Specialty Coffee
Haven Specialty Coffee’s espresso bar and cafe in Darling Square roast all their own beans in small batches. They also tailor each cup to your unique taste by adjusting coffee grind size, brewing time and temperature, coffee-to-water ratio, brewing method and more.
Toby’s Estate ethically sources coffee beans from all corners of the world, ships them to Sydney and roasts them inhouse at their flagship cafe in Chippendale. Trained baristas at their Darling Square cafe do these beautiful beans justice, pouring a near perfect coffee every time.
Shortstop Coffee & Donuts
Shortstop Coffee & Donuts have perfected the ultimate pairing. They serve barista-made coffee made from beans sourced from specialty roasters alongside delicious donuts fried fresh every day - crispy on the outside and pillowy on the inside, just like they should be.
Cockle Bay Wharf
Taste Baguette & Grill
Coffee is best when it’s served alongside delicious pastries and breads. Taste Baguette bakes their cabinet food fresh every day including bread rolls, pies, layer cakes and delectable almond croissants.
Pyrmont & Harbourside
You’ll find Antidote Cafe & Bar on the ground floor of The Star complex, serving the remedy for your early morning woes. That includes perfectly brewed Tobys Estate Coffee and delightful brunch meals including a cracking bacon & egg roll for $9 and a brilliant acai bowl with blueberries, peanut butter & coconut water.
