My takeaway was freshly flavoured, on the weaker side though very pleasant. Very clean and crisp fitout. Will happily return another time when in town. NB - Address is misleading.....Opus is located on the Princes Hway.

Awesome atmosphere. Pretty good coffee. Cool place to hang out.


Glass Alley


Best cafe Glass Alley in wollongong for 2016

Good coffee...not OMG, but a full bodied flavour, well made with a little upfront harshness that may appeal to some. Atmosphere let down by the fact that it’s in a shopping mall.

Best cafe Beast & Bread in wollongong for 2016

Amazing coffee and the service was warm and friendly and everything you would want from a little hide away. The food was top notch without a doubt a return cafe.

Great space. Love the chair/stool option. I had the chicken sandwich it was superb. Music + smile = tip Best score I’ve ever given outside of Sydney.

Best cafe The Hungry Monkey in wollongong for 2016

Fantastic service. Never wait too long even when very busy. Great coffee. Appreciate the organic coconut milk alternative. Great dinner options from the whole day’s menu.

A real surprise. Lovely veranda and good coffee


lee and me


Best cafe lee and me in wollongong for 2016

Great cafe centrally located in Crown Street, serving Campos coffee which is always a favourite, highly recommended.

I don't know what happened to this place, but if customer get cheated on first visit, you can't expect he will come back. Picked this cafe out of all around as they had a good review and serving Campos. As i like stronger coffee and Campos beens are a bit stronger than some others like single or., i decided to get coffee here. Big mistake! Ordered double shot soy late to get even more kick. PAID $4.95 AND GOT JUST VERY WEAK POORLY EXTRACTED COFFEE. If i can call it that. I turned around to go back to fix this and got even more surprised how they think to get it right. Instead of making me new coffee with double shot i paid for, he just dumped extra shot in already ruined coffee!! Now i know what instructor at barista course i did was talking about when he said, 90% cafes simply don't know how to make coffee. But maybe it was just poor customer service. I dont think I'm going back here anytime soon. Just remember guys, there is many other cafes around and if you cheat customers, you will loose eventually.

Best cafe Milk & Co Coffee in wollongong for 2016

Great place in Albion park for a coffee and breakfast in Albion Park. 👍


Bean Roasted


Best cafe Bean Roasted in wollongong for 2016

Down from the North Shore for the weekend. After 2 very disappointing coffees from 2 local cafes my coffee from Bean Roasted was 👌. Can’t go wrong with Campos Beans + Baristas who know what they’re doing. Thank You!
