We found this coffee shop after thankfully being tagged in an Instagram post for the shop. We noticed it was close to our home of Botany, in Mascot so headed in shortly after.
Fifteen is located on the Ground Floor of an office building opposite the Adina apartment hotel Sydney Airport. In a triangulated spot between O’Riordan St, Bourke Road and Coward St, it is far easier to find than it sounds. It is less than a 5 minute stroll from the Mascot station. It is hands down the best coffee in Mascot so we recommend you pop in here, rather than getting a coffee at any old place at the station.
The cafe is small with a bench on each wall inside to sit, and a few tables outside too. We like the fit out and styling here, with their minimalist clean lines; concrete, pine and art that is in fitting with the decor and area. A huge La Marzocco coffee machine dominates the counter.
They use Deluca beans (Botany production) and single origin coffee for their espresso. It is quality coffee, made by quality baristas. We come in more than once, weekly. The other super handy thing is this coffee shop opens until 3:30 which is good to get the afternoon coffee hit. It’s hard to find places these days that open late.
Food wise, the menu is short, but good variety given the small space and kitchen. It is high quality food, using Brooklyn Boy for their bread. The menu options include açai bowls, banana bread, a toast bar with everyone’s favourite avo on toast or if you prefer, whipped feta, tomato and basil. For a sweet choice, perhaps their ricotta, tahini, orange and walnut topped toast. In addition they have a few toasties and an amazing Reuben. This sandwich is on rye bread, with torched pastrami, pickles, cheese and a special sauce.
A beef brisket burger is another popular choice, with meat from Black Forest smoke house, served on a fresh milk bun. If you’d prefer a snack, the front counter has brownies, donuts, cookies (and I love the Vegan cookie) and even some Boreks!
The staff here are super friendly and make all customers so welcome. Owner Michael is always so happy and is doing a great job with this business. We are grateful to have a great little spot close to home!
