One of the best in Glebe. The regular barista is fantastic (slightly less good when someone else is on). Wonderful friendly service and staff will quickly remember your regular order and happily answer questions. The food is also a highlight and the weekly specials are hard to walk past.
Was looking for a new fix so fired up the app and found Astor Espresso. Coffee is solid. They use Campos and do it well. A little weak for my liking. The service was quick and cheerful. Coffee came out quickly. It is very nice and quiet inside despite being on a busy thoroughfare. Place was half filled with a mix or suits and school kids having coffee and/or brekky. The food looked delicious.
While not a favorite of mine, I often find myself recommending Astor to friends visiting Glebe. On reflection, this is likely due to consistent and good quality coffee or moreover the friendly and helpful staff. Every customer is met with a "hello" and coffee orders are often remembered by the staff. Staff have been happy to sit down and talk through the menu with first time customers. The meal options are well portioned and creatively prepared; attention to small details are appreciated (the pesto base on the halloumi stack is delicious). With early opening hours and prompt service, Astor is a great option for those on the go.
