Our picks for the best coffee spots in Sydney’s Inner West

It’s not always easy waking up for work at the crack of dawn. In fact we don’t know if we’d be able to do it every morning without a good caffeine hit.

Thankfully for our team of lawn mowing and gardening experts in the Inner West, you can find a great cup of coffee on nearly every second street corner.

So when it comes to where to get the best coffee in the Inner West we decided to narrow the list down and pressed (no pun intended) our gardeners for their favourite place to grab a coffee in the area.

Cornersmith Café, Marrickville

First up is Cornersmith Café in Marrickville. This was a difficult decision, with the suburb being known for having some of the best cafes in Sydney. But according to our team of green thumbs, Cornersmith Café is the top dog. This popular local café is located only a short walk from Marrickville station, on the corner of Petersham and Illawarra Road. Serving up great coffee partnered with an ethical food menu, Cornersmith is our recommendation for a great coffee in Marrickville.

Address: 314 Illawarra Road, Marrickville NSW 2204


The Hub House Diner, Dulwich Hill

It’s also a difficult decision in nearby Dulwich Hill, but our vote goes to The Hub House Diner on New Canterbury Road. Perhaps known more for its lunch and dinner menu, this place makes a great flat white to kick start your day. Partnered with a delicious bacon and egg roll, we can’t think of many better ways to kick off the day!

Address: 410-412 New Canterbury Road, Dulwich Hill NSW 2203


Excelsior Jones, Ashfield

When we’re maintaining our clients lawns in Canterbury, Ashbury and Ashfield there’s only one place we stop for a coffee, Excelsior Jones. Located on the residential Queen Street in Ashfield this place has developed quite a reputation. Serving awesome coffee and a tasty food menu to match, Excelsior Jones is our clear winner in this neck of the woods.

Address: 139A Queen Street, Ashfield NSW 2131


Goblin Kitchen & Bar, Summer Hill

Goblin Kitchen & Bar is our pick for the best café in beautiful Summer Hill. Just a short walk from Summer Hill station, this Sloane Street café makes a mean flat white. If you’ve got time grab a table in the cafes back garden and order a bite to eat from their delicious menu. You won’t be disappointed!

Address: 6 Sloane Street, Summer Hill NSW 2130


Papercup, Stanmore

Last but not least is Stanmore’s Papercup. Situated on Cambridge Street, Papercup is a great local coffee shop, with friendly staff, a small but quality menu and of course most importantly a great cup of Joe. Check them out if you’re in the area.

Address: 157/161 Cambridge Street, Stanmore NSW 2048
