Room 10, Potts Point

Voted as Sydney’s best new café by the SMH Good Café Guide in 2011. This little hole in the wall serves up one of the nicest (and potentially best) coffee in Potts Point and delicious breakfast consisting of open sandwiches, cakes and other brunch-type selections.

The café is tiny, seriously tiny! The kitchen is actually a dedicated area of bench space on the right, and no big tables in sight, stools double as tables. The coffee here is amazingly good, Room 10 uses Mecca coffee and the man behind the menu is Daniel Jackson who previously worked at Clover and Clipper café.

I came here with my lady of leisure friend B, we haven’t seen each other for such a long time that we had A LOT to catch up on! She started with skim flat white – loved it!

I wanted to try their chai latte, served in a tea-pot, it was absolutely delicious.

I couldn’t go past the burnt fig, cinnamon and almond granola served with stewed rhubarb, fresh banana, yogurt and honey ($9) with a bit of milk. It had me at fig and rhubarb that I didn’t even look at anything else on the menu! Served with milk, the granola was crunchy and wonderful. I have taken a liking to cinnamon, the smell especially and it was distinctively fragrant!

The stewed rhubarb and yogurt was a wonderful complement. One bowl was not enough, I wanted more!

B had the bircher, which was served with banana, stewed rhubarb, topped with pistachio and honey ($9). This was just as good! I loved the crunchiness of the pistachio, the moistness of the bircher, it’s no secret that we are both bircher fans!

We saw other diners have the sandwich and it looked wonderful – slow cooked salt beef sarnie with fresh cabbage slaw rocket and mustard ($10) and poached lemon chicken sarnie with toasted almonds, celery, dill, avocado and rocket ($11) – YUM! Will definitely be back for the sarnie and of course the coffee!

Simple name, simple signage – tiny ceramic number 10. I can imagine this place being super busy on the weekends, but you can always takeaway. Coffee is excellent – well worth the trek, even went back for a second cup of coffee! I can see why this was voted as the best new café and as they say – simple things are done exceptionally well!

Thanks again B, and I look forward to our brunch catchup again!
