Ashfield locals looking to expand their coffee palette can head to Ashfield Apothecary on Charlotte Street. After opening in November 2019, the cafe has ensured the leafy inner west suburb has stayed caffeinated through multiple lockdowns.

Here, you'll find a rotating roster of roasters, with the cafe spotlighting different coffee-makers from near and afar including an international coffee bean every second month. All the coffee is sourced from small-batch and ethical coffee suppliers.

While coffee is the focus, there is a reserved menu of cafe favourites to compliment your cup of joe. You'll find smashed avo topped with heirloom tomatoes, pickled onion, Persian feta and chilli ($15) or a classic brekkie roll that's been taken up a notch with overnight cured pastrami, fried egg, kale, bush tomato relish and homemade Sriracha mayo.

Vegans and vegetarians can opt for the seasonal vegan bowl, in which you'll find the likes of beetroot hummus, kale, avocado, edamame and roasted nuts. Or, if you're looking to indulge your sweet tooth, turn to the Persian love cake ($7) which is made in-house and sold every Friday and Saturday. Get in early though, as it's known to sell out.

Follow the cafe on Instagram to find the latest coffee on offer and swing past to try your daily cappuccino with a new type bean.
