Searching for a good coffee fix today, my friend suggested that we try out the Coffee Warehouse in Strathfield. I wasn’t too sure whether a good coffee fix was worth the 30 minutes drive, but it was so much more! Entering into the cafe from the back entrance, I walked past large bags of coffee beans, and soon realised that it was more of a museum displaying all things coffee. There was a barista training room, a deli (olives, cheese etc), grocer (think pasta and 5kg jars of nutella!) and a wide television screen live streaming how the coffees are being made.

Interior of the cafe
Spaghetti aglio e olio ($14) – extra virgin olive oil, fresh chilli, garlic, parsley & parmesan cheese. My friend ordered this dish and said she couldn’t taste the chilli at all, but otherwise it was ok
The Boss salad! ($18) – fresh mixed salad greens, with wild rocket, baby spinach, cherry tomatoes, spanish onion, cucumber, kalamata olives, feta cheese, topped with crispy bacon, chargrilled marinated chicken breast, ranch dressing and served with toasted ciabatta. The bacon was perfectly crispy as stated, and went well with the chicken and ranch dress.
Espresso Chai ($5) and muddled limone ($6) – I had the espresso chai which was really creamy with the soy milk, and I was impressed that the sharpness of the coffee still came through. My friend said the muddled limone was excellent, and had a “freshness” too it.
Had to take a photo of this… 5kg nutella jars!
Probably wouldn’t come back for lunch next time, but instead come back to explore their extensive coffee menu and desserts (the tiramisu cake looked really good!).
