White Henry Espresso Bar

Regulars flock for the chocolatey, fruity, spicy house blend.

In 2014, White Henry was one of the first cafes to open in Parramatta's hidden laneways. Today, its black metal stools and timber-topped tables are busy with a stream of regulars.

The major drawcard is White Henry's house blend: Blue Stag. Carefully refined over years of research and cupping, this brew involves three kinds of arabica beans, creating a chocolatey body with fruity, spicy notes. If you're more of an experimental drinker, try the single origin, which changes from week to week.

Given such a heavy focus on coffee, the food menu is short, sweet and affordable. At brekkie, think banana bread, wraps and smashed avo; at lunch, go for a salad box, sourdough sandwich or Turkish roll.

Despite being so tucked away, White Henry catches quite a bit of sun light. Even on cool, wintry days, it's an uplifting, peaceful spot to take five from Parramatta's rapidly growing CBD.
