We visited Brew Ha Ha coffee roasters in Lilyfield, only about 5 minutes from the Sydney CBD. A cool little spot with plenty of indoor seating. Their decor is mostly coffee based equipment, a huge roasting machine and bags of coffee dominating the space. They also showcase their medals, rightfully so.
We made this a destination visit, hearing via word of mouth about their award winning speciality coffee.
Brew Ha Ha Coffee Roasters won a Bronze award in the filter category at the Australian International Coffee Awards. They also won bronze last year for espresso and milk based coffees.
We tried a mocha, latte and also some of their filter – a Rwandan origin that was made especially for us. The milk based coffees were nice and smooth and came served with quality latte art. The staff made us the filter coffee that saw the fruity flavours pop.
Food wise, there’s a lot of tempting options, from granola to avo on toast or salads, but we opted for the weekend specials since we do plan to return. The loaded scrambled egg croissant with chorizo, onion, tomato, feta and herbs was excellent. A beautifully crispy croissant with a creamy scrambled egg mix.
In addition, their beetroot dish was so tasty, whilst also being light and healthy. The four beetroot salad with red, golden and target beetroot that was roasted and served with a beetroot purée, greens, candied walnuts and labneh was an intricate dish full of flavour. We were both vying to polish the plate off!
Service was super polite and food came out in excellent time, despite it being quite busy. Owner Dennis was so kind and made us feel welcome and it is a combination of factors that will see us certainly return.
