Astor Espresso

Croque Monsieurs and coffee on a leafy stretch of Glebe Point Road.

If you're after a decent, neat cafe getting the job done, Astor Espresso has you covered. A slick grey-painted exterior with huge glass windows lets in just the right amount of sunlight into the venue's simple interior. Grab a table outside and watch the loyal tribe of locals who return day in, day out for their daily coffee and quinoa and haloumi fritters.

A mammoth Croque Monsieur steals the show on the takeaway food front with leg ham, gruyere, béchamel sauce and dijon ($9.90), with the option to add a fried egg if you're in the mood ($2.50). The staff are friendly, and they'll remember your name and coffee order after two or three return visits. The round tables are not particularly conducive for larger groups – save this one for a solo or duo cafe session.
