    Surprised that our coffees were off this time.

    Long Black crema was almost non existent and had a thin sour flavour.

    Having moved offices to the northern end of the city I've tried many of the more popular cafe's in the past few weeks and I have enjoyed some good coffee. I have failed to find consistently excellent coffee so it was nice to take the walk to Mecca on King today where I've enjoyed mostly great... Read more

    Awesome place, staff and coffee. Seriously. That's why there's always a queue. Best in CBD.

    I'm from Brisbane so I don't know where is good except for Bean hunter. I'm so freaking happy to find good coffee in Sydney CBD. Really great!

    Really needed coffee and Beanhunter says this place is open from 6am Sunday. It is 8 am and I am without coffee. Argh!!!

    Went back after a while away and tried a cap. It was def better than your average cuppa, so would drop by again. Strong and interesting enough. Good service even when busy.

    Great little spot/
    The coffee was great, but can't say it was a stand out in comparison to some others. Would still have one if passing by.

    Piccolo of the house blend (mostly Costa Rican) "Dark Horse" was excellent. The best thing about my visit was the huge smile of front guy (Mark?). Despite being kind of busy after the lunch rush, he was really happy to discuss beans and stuff. It's those little moments that make my day when the... Read more

    This is one of the best places to get coffee in the Sydney CBD. There are a stack of people passing through this small cafe, so based on that alone, you know you are in for a good coffee!

    Coffee again was top shelf. Could only fault the visual look of the coffee, otherwise top coffee.

    This is an outstanding espresso bar and one of the best in Sydney for sure.

    I was in the city today attending a book launch at Dymocks and afterwards my colleagues said they wanted to grab a coffee. I told them they were in luck as great coffee was to be had just a short walk away. My reputation for knowing good coffee was upheld by the usual high standard at... Read more

    Always good and a really interesting blend. Only negative is that to get any flavour in a milk based drink, you really need to ask for a double - which at Mecca prices makes it an expensive coffee.

    Had a single origin espresso. Very smooth and sweet. Worth the wait. Very busy cafe. If you like a bit of quiet space this is probably not a cafe for you.

    Been here a few times now on different trips to sydney. Always great coffee, service and tasty food options.

    The location is a strength and a weakness. Central for city dwellers, but noisy as can be with traffic on King St rushing by.

    Macchiato had intriguing flavours, a truly unique blend.

    This place is amazing, made a side trip last time I was in Sydney to try this place out. They are on top of every facet of the coffee game these guys. The ristretto I ordered was nice and short, thick and the golden crema was very aromatic. The follow up Latte was also cracking with a creamy gloss... Read more

    Ohhhh Mecca -Yes I pray 5 times a day that my local coffee places could do what these guys do with coffee beans so consistently perfectly - considering how stupidly busy they are they treat each extraction like it were their last. Whether it's the house blend which puts most others to shame or... Read more

    Had a macchiato and the flavours were very colourful. Really enjoyed the shot. A small nice setup with great atmosphere but I think it's a little too small.

    Had a half double riss FW on their dark horse. I've never tasted it better anywhere else. Very very good! Baristas clearly have a great knowledge and quick and smooth service to top it all off. Bought filter coffee as well and have been loving it back at home.
