Have been coming to workshop (town hall) for several years now. Coffee is always great with top variety of single origins. The shop must have changed hands, staff are daily baffled as to what a single origin (SO) is and if it can be ordered....More

A nice find whilst waiting to undertake business. Service was really good as was the coffee and green tea. Also consumed a delicious Ginger Slice.

Nothing pretentious. Just great coffee. Friendly staff. Rapid service, even when it is busy. Workshop become our regular Flat White coffee place on this visit.

Have seen reviews , yes for some this may be the best but we wanted to sit and sip a lovely coffee and that didn't happen. The truth for us was that the coffee was ridiculously hot and that's not good for a coffee aficionado....More

Just called in here as it was late afternoon and most of the other coffee shops were closed. I was pleasantly surprised. The coffee was excellent, service good and as it was a hot day (and I didn't ask) a glass of lovely, iced water...More

Flat white was OK but lacked flavour and strength. Milk unceremoniously sloshed into the cup and slid over to me- strange since there was no queue and it claims to be a speciality coffee bar. Looks like the other Barista was much better

This has to be hands down the best tasting coffee in Sydney - and yes I have tried them all!!! I ordered a triple shot long black and it is nice and strong and made to perfection. I feel like superwoman after I have drunk...More

Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with
energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise
buildings and after-work drink places, high-end
shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners
frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a
dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit
the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle,
reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens
