Single O Botany, 28 B Cranbrook St. Botany, Open Tues – Sat
We’re excited to launch our new coffee bar at our roastworks this week!
Some ten years after opening in Reservoir Street, it’s our first retail foray out of Surry Hills. And out of Surry Hills it is indeed; hipsters, you should check some of the old beards in these parts! And there’s more high viz than the eighties. There’s also a great community of friendly folk that we’ve been chuffed to meet these last few days and look forward to meeting more.
Located in our coffee headquarters or ‘mothership’ as we call it, from which all things coffee come and go, this coffee bar is bringing it to Botany with a delicious all-day menu designed for the bar environment, a view to the goings on in our roastworks and of course all the coffee you could ever want – blends, origins, filter and espresso roasts – direct from the roaster door.
Like the roastworks itself, the coffee bar is solar powered by our panels on the roof, so there’s extra love in the blends and single origins off the La Marzocco Linear PB. The pre-production unit of the new Juggler café milk tap system is in place and kicking it. We’re serving specialty filter methods including clever coffee dripper, cold brew and pourover, with four origins to choose from each month. Our packer and glass-blower Eliot Brand has hand-blown some beautiful filter glasses for us, and potter Malcolm Greenwood has made the beautiful coffee cups, bowls and plates.
On the subject of food, the all day menu comprises the same high quality, seasonal ingredients ethos as in it’s Surry Hills café, but more abbreviated to suit the bar style environment. The hungry can find satisfaction in this bar’s signature breakfast; Poached Eggs, Avocado,Almond, Lamb Merguez, Zatar & Chickpea Salad. For lunch, there’s a roastworks Burger; Grain Fed Beef, Iceberg, Smoked Chilli Mayo & Spiced Pineapple Chutney.
The space is small, like skinny small, with the action taking place along an 8 metre bar. We’ve poured as much thought into that bar as we have concrete. There’s also a small deck out front and a back communal table from which to take in the roastworks action.
Familiar faces from Surry Hills like Sean and Lirie are mixing in with some stellar new team members, Cam, Gaspar and Tom, to bring you Single O goodness with a brand new back drop.
So come on out, can’t wait to show you our digs! Tuesdays to Fridays 6.30am to 3pm, Saturdays 7.30am to 3pm. Phone: 02 9316 9699.
