Cabrito Coffee Traders: Sydney

Finding a decent joint to grab a strong coffee and a quick breakfast in the CBD before our whale watching excursion on Saturday morning proved difficult. We needed to be at Circular Quay at half 9 so decided to find someplace we could pop in on our way down to the harbour.

I had done some research the night before and found only 2 places that looked worth visiting who were open on a Saturday in the CBD area.  Workshop Espresso, which was more a hole in the wall and Cabrito Coffee Traders.  We were keen for a bite to eat and a sit down so Cabrito Coffee Traders it was.  

Hurrah for a strong flat white and a piccolo latte!  The coffee was very good- custom roasted by 4 Rascals.  However, I hear the guys will shortly be roasting their own.   I loved the whimsical vintage teaspoons that arrived alongside our coffees.

The boys were only serving toasted sandwiches at that early hour (they really only have a few sweets, toast, toasties and sandwiches on the menu) so I went with the jamón mega cheese and TBS decided on the ricotta, grana taleggio and mustard.  

The jamón was the perfect partner to the cheese on cheese (ricotta and mozzarella) in my toastie and the sourdough was perfectly toasted.  TBS proclaimed his simple but totally hitting the spot. 

If you're ever in the CBD and need a pick me up, look no further than Cabrito Coffee Traders, the guys are friendly, the coffee strong and the toasties first class. Given there is a lack of good cafes open over the weekend in the CBD, thank god there is this little gem.

Good to know:

Coffee $3.50
Toasties $9
