Walk a few blocks down an inner city street and you're bound to pass a place to get a cuppa joe. Sydneysiders are certainly not lacking choices for their morning coffee — and that makes it all the more impressive when you stumble upon a small kiosk cafe that has built quite the fanbase. You'll find Hatch Espresso under the Mercure Hotel. There may be a line — we're not kidding about it being popular — but it moves quickly.

From as early as 6am, it's serving The Grounds coffee, brekkie burgers, toast and pastries. Plus, some mighty tasty (and affordable) Lebanese-style savoury pastries, too, including spinach, cheese and meat pideler. It's also, according to CP reader @tashaba, "one of the only spots close to the city for authentic Lebanese manoush".
