Industry Beans York St
The Melbourne coffee pioneer has brought its famed bubble tea-like cold brews to Sydney with its first outpost housed in the heart of the CBD.
July 20, 2023
Having cemented its status as one of Melbourne's most celebrated coffee roasters and cafes, Industry Beans made a splash in Sydney's caffeine scene, opening its first interstate location in the CBD in 2019.
It's made its home on York Street, complete with a heritage façade, state-of-the-art equipment and its trademark Industry Beans offering of creatively charged food and next-level specialty coffee.
The Sydney venue features the same customised La Marzocco Modbar that put Industry Beans' Little Collins Street store on the map, allowing customers to be front and centre of the coffee-making experience. You can watch the magic unfold as the baristas brew its signature Fitzroy Street blend and whip up treats like the specialty bubble coffee — featuring coffee-soaked tapioca pearls, cold brew and normal or vegan condensed milk.
As for the food, you can expect a seasonal lineup of cleverly executed dishes that are far from boring. The York Street cafe's southern counterpart has won many a fan for dishes like its coffee-rubbed wagyu burger, its chilli barramundi folded eggs paired with coffee togarashi and avocado smash starring beetroot dust and green tea salt — all of which have made their way onto the revamped menu. That's alongside a few new additions that specifically cater to the work lunch crowd, like the buckwheat and broccolini bowl that can be eaten in or taken away.
Expect a finely honed customer experience, too, with a dedicated grab-and-go area and an Industry Beans app, which allows you to skip the queues and order your office coffees ahead of time.
