UPDATE, July 19: This article originally stated that free coffees were available on Wednesdays until the end of July; however, the promotion ended at the end of June. This piece has been updated to reflect that.


Lode Pies and Pastries is known for its truly next-level baked goods. Whether it's creamy chocolate and hazelnut custard croissants or the store's viral LuMi Pithivier pie, people flock for their sweet and savoury creations. For the next few weeks though, people will be making a beeline through its doors for a different reason: free coffee. That's right, the new addition to the Lode family in Circular Quay will be offering free coffee to anyone who drops by once a week in June — and there's no catch.

Lode has just arrived in George Street's new dining precinct Sydney Place, opening alongside 20 new hospitality and retail openings including Kosta's Takeaway, Malay Chinese Noodle Bar, Toastiesmith, Dopa by Devon, Thirteen Feet Tattoo and Toby's Estate — plus the soon-to-reopen Jacksons on George.

To celebrate the new outpost, the Lode baristas will be whipping up coffees, teas and hot chocolates on the house every Wednesday between June 7–28. You don't have to buy a pie or a pastry — just head in and start your day with a complimentary cup of joe or drink of your choice.

Of course, if you feel like reinvesting the money that you've saved on your daily caffeine fix back into a treat from Lode, you're more than welcome to. Some of the other delectable menu items Lode serves up include cinnamon scrolls, yuzu custard-filled pastries, blueberry tarts, pork sausage rolls, spinach pies, and ham, cheese, mustard and jalapeño croissants.

Lode first opened in Surry Hills in 2021, so if you can't make it to Circular Quay, you can always head into the OG location for a decadent morning treat — sans free coffee.

Lode Pies and Pastries Circular Quay is open 8am–3pm Monday–Saturday at 5 Sai Ying Lane, Sydney. You can nab free coffee, tea and hot chocolate at the bakery every Wednesday between Wednesday, June 7–Wednesday, June 28.
