Great coffee, perfect temperature, great flavour.
The best take-away latte I've ever had - the best, Jerry! It damn tastes Italian. Strong, flavorsome, energizing. Fashionable red candy-stripe cups on this occasion. I will be back regularly.
If you're powerwalking through the Hunter Connection, between Pitt Street and George Street, you can easily miss this place. And that's not a bad thing, unfortunately.
The dark, mood-lit shop is set well-back from its arcade frontage. It has a sort of post-modern industrial feel. The... Read more
This is one of the best take away coffees in the city. I pick up a coffee here everyday on my way to work and I would never miss it! The focus here is coffee not food although there are a few muffins that you can buy (but I never have).
The baristas are authentic italian boys and... Read more

Being in Sydney on business and trying to sample as much of the coffee as my system could process meant that on this one morning I had to try \"The Lab\".
I had been warned by OzDJ who as a long time friend and avid coffee geek to expect nothing and still be disappointed.
The shop was extremely small and you would walk right pass it if you were not looking for it. Excellent speed of service. Good coffee and perfect temperature. Nice setup. I just dont know where you guys store everything you need.
I pass The Lab every morning on my way to the office; but no matter how late I just have to grab a latte to go. What I like is the consistency of every cup & the speedy service. The staff remember my order & always give a smile. I have bought beans which I like to grind for the ritual plunger on... Read more
Great service, fantastic strong coffee and the muffins aren’t bad here. 3 dollars for a long black.

Decided to visit after reading conflicting views. Flat White is hot enough with some character but not a standout and lacks any kick or bold flavours. Bought a kilo of beans which, sadly, was roasted three weeks ago. Barista claimed I wouldn't notice the difference but their next delivery was on... Read more
This place is the only place I've found in the Sydney CBD that makes a consistently strong good coffee. My work colleagues love it too!
They also get their muffins from the Swiss Bakery, who make really good mufffins!
Definitely recommend this for anyone who likes a... Read more

I have been to The Lab Cafe on several occasions since it opened and have been extremely happy with my coffee. After trialling a flat white on my first few visits, I decided to put them through the espresso test... It was beautiful, not burnt and just delicious.
I have found the... Read more
For me it is the best coffee in the area, I tried a lot and this little cafè is the way to have a quick and delicious coffee.
If you have no time to waste and you don't need (or you can't...) sit and relax, you can easily choose your snack and drinks (curious soft drinks to... Read more
I agree with the above review - I was completely underwhelmed by the blase attitude of the barista...so rude and obviously does not care one bit about making a good coffee or whether his customers come back or not.
My capp itself was bland and uninspiring.
I definitely... Read more
