In its tenth year, Soma is one of the best places in Sydney to get great coffee. You’ll find the staff slinging ‘spros from Mecca roasters in Alexandria. A particular standout is the filter coffee, produced on Mecca single origins. As an example, the Kenyan Riakiberu is a bright coffee with a cola taste and smooth berry finish. Combine that kind of bean with Soma’s refined understanding of batch brews and you have a winner.
If this is too much coffee talk for you, Soma also aces a simple cappuccino. You can find some unique flavours on their food menu, including shakshuka eggs or powerkraut; a killer combo with avocado, kimchi gomashio and chilli. Step into this paired-back cafe for a simple dining experience.
