Single O Surry Hills
This Surry Hills coffee stalwart now has self-serve filter on tap.
What's better than a freshly brewed cup of coffee? Only having to wait 15 seconds for it. Much-loved Surry Hills cafe Single O (previously Single Origin Roasters) has streamlined the filter coffee process, launching a first-of-its-kind coffee on tap.
As well as being extremely fast, Single O's new filter coffee taps are also self-serve. Just tap your credit card (if you're not heading in on the free day), choose one of the four taps and wait 15 seconds while your reusable cup, or loan-a-mug, fills with freshly brewed batch coffee. You can choose from uniquely crafted brews such as the Sweet Sixteen Birthday Blend, with notes of peaches and cream; and the mango- and guava-heavy Nicaragua Cup of Excellence. It'll set you back between $4–5 a cup, or you can order a tasting flight of three for $7.
It's also serving up a varied brunch and lunch menu, which includes everything from avo toast and bacon and egg rolls through to crocodile and corn croquettes. There are also a few gluten-free and vegan options, and a motherload of great sides to customise your eggs on toast.
You'll also be able to check out the popular coffee spot's recently renovated and expanded interior, which was designed by Sydney architect Luchetti Krelle, who's also behind Barangaroo restaurant Banskii, lower north shore bar Manly Greenhouse and Marickville cafe Matinee Coffee.
