Door 34


Best cafe Door 34 in newcastle for 2016

A well balanced washed Ethiopian espresso that had a sweet fruitiness tinged with caramel. A resilient cola and lime flavour to the cold brew – strong and refreshing.


Sherwood Coffee Bar

Newcastle West

Best cafe Sherwood Coffee Bar in newcastle for 2016

First time at Sherwood, fantastic coffee, great staff and good atmosphere.

A great little set up in a sweet location. My piccolo was a little milky, nonetheless tasty and presented well..

Service was bad! Wasn’t impressed one bit. Coffee had good flavour and they know how to work with oat milk It has gone down hill since Hamish left

Best cafe Xtraction Espresso in newcastle for 2016

Funky little espresso bar, awesome food. Coffee, two house blends and seasonal single origin each week.

The espresso at Xtraction is simply he best in Newcastle. My girlfriend had a soy latte this morning, and when I commented on how quickly she finished it, she said, “It was just perfect.” Enough said. They’re the best.

As soon as I saw they had Veneziano coffee beans I knew it was a winner!

Excellent, syrupy red apples and slight toffee espresso. Food was great and service excellent


Esther C


Best cafe Esther C in newcastle for 2016

Best cafe Cargo Espresso Bar in newcastle for 2016

Quality coffee, well made and served with a smile - beach-side espresso bar inside a shipping container

Best cafe little white bull espresso in newcastle for 2016

Excellent bright piccolo ground out of an anfim, pulled off a sexy white strada. Nice little spot.

Best cafe Mr.Sister Coffee in newcastle for 2016

Consistently great coffee! You won’t find many places better than this!

If your in Kotara shopping centre and you want a great coffe this is the place!

Best cafe Core espresso in newcastle for 2016

Good long black and the flatties were fine, nice temp and size. Very nice staff and a great little cafe

Nice vibe, great coffee. The flat white was (at least) twice the amount that I’m used to, still had a great coffee taste all through without it coming over as milky.

Espresso and Double shot flat white. Time to change you coffee brand. Unfortunately the double shot was bland and milky. How ever their food is a 10. Try the Pulled Pork protein bowl... fabulous.

Best cafe Suspension Espresso in newcastle for 2016

Decent coffee, though on the small side. Great vibe and aesthetic in line with the Islington feel - not trying too hard to be cool - unlike some of the patrons.

Nice dark roast. Good location for weekend chills.

Best cafe zaaki espresso in newcastle for 2016

Coffee was lovely and the smashed avocado with the lovely middle-eastern spice touches was beautiful. Despite the rather Spartan atmosphere the service was friendly and prompt.

Best cafe Corner Lane Espresso in newcastle for 2016

The Mexican beaned long black. It’s a cracker, super smooth, delicate cocoa nib with a light spice....ole!

Very generous crema to the espresso on an Indian - bitter cherries, fairly rough robust number. The cold brew (750 mil) was excellent, smooth dark chocolate with a hint of acidity.


Welsh Blacks

Cooks Hill

Best cafe Welsh Blacks in newcastle for 2016

What has happened to this place? Used to serve great coffee now coffee is very poor. No vibe. Was once crowded now empty. Sad.


The Press


Best cafe The Press in newcastle for 2016

Nice atmosphere. Good strong macchiato to get me through the afternoon

Best cafe One Penny Black in newcastle for 2016

Very good ristretto and brownie 😊. Also oat milk coffee right up there. Limited vegan options if you are that way inclined. Great effort

Great coffee and snacks, One Penny Black is one of the best coffees in Newcastle.
