Bright and breezy with great coffee and a killer menu – Edition Coffee Roasters is a great little cafe in Darlinghurst, Sydney.
We were in town for our annual family City2Surf tradition and stuck to our tried and tested routine – waking up early, running 14km and then spending the afternoon refuelling and nursing our sore legs in a cute Sydney cafe.
This year, Edition Coffee Roasters was our cafe of choice. Located on the corner of Crown and Liverpool Streets, Edition is a cafe where I could easily spend a lot of time. Every little detail has been well thought out – from the easy breezy Scandinavian-inspired interior right down to the little clay pots for drinking chai.
The highlight, however, is definitely their off-beat menu. The menu changes regularly, but is pretty much guaranteed to include ingredients or dishes you’ve never heard of. Their current menu, for instance, features black sesame hotcakes with mango ganache, yuzu marscapone and preserved mango. And yes, the hotcakes are actually black.
But we were there back in August, when gingerbread polenta with apple, dehydrated autumn fruits and maple crumble was on the menu. A delicious, pretty looking, autumn breakfast erring on the dangerous side of ginger – the perfect combo for ginger lovers like mum and I.
The boys all went for the “porco rollo” – smoked and braised Berkshire pork, tamagoyaki (Japanese omelette), ginger slaw and white miso BBQ sauce on a brioche bun. A more fancy, less conventional take on the tried and true pork roll, and by all reports, it was a success.
To top it all off, Edition serve up a damn great coffee, are super friendly and they don’t even skimp on the chai. The verdict? Edition Coffee Roasters, a new Sydney favourite.
