St Dreux Espresso Bar

A pastel pink coffee shop in the heart of the CBD.

Barrack Place is Sydney CBD's new food and caffeine-filled laneway hangout. Taking inspiration from the laneways of Melbourne and New York, the space has an industrial fit-out with a touch of art — there's a brick façade, black steel details and cobblestone streets, plus installations by Adelaide artist Amy Joy Watson.

Inside, you'll find three spots serving top-notch brews: Batch Espresso, Mo'st and St Dreux. The latter is a pastel pink coffee oasis and the second outpost of St Dreux, a roastery located in Sydney's southwest.

It's serving up its own blends of beans as milky coffees, filter and nitro cold brew — a sparkling, nitrogen-charged coffee with the foamy head of a beer. Perfect for Sydney's balmy summer mornings (and afternoons).

Food is light, limited to pastries — sweet and savoury — and baked goods. If you're looking for something heartier, we suggest heading next door to the aforementioned Mo'st — it's slinging  rou jia mo: a Chinese-style burger originating from the Shaanxi Province that's said to be the world's oldest sandwich.
