We take our coffee pretty seriously. We are big foodies and for us, a good day only starts with an awesome cup of coffee. It could be at any of the impressive cafes from the north shore of Sydney to Hornsby.
There is hardly a cloudy day here to sullen your mood, and a good shot of coffee with a delicious plate of breakfast is all you need to get started to enjoy the beautiful day ahead. While the locals have their favourite breakfast destinations, the tourists might find themselves at a loss in finding the right place that serves them the best breakfast.
Well, don’t worry, we know which ones you are most likely to enjoy the most. So, here are the some of the best cafes on the North Shore as voted by our locksmiths. Enjoy!
Location: Shop 7/2 Elizabeth Plaza 83 Mount Street, North Sydney
Opening Times: 07:00 AM to 04:00 PM (Monday to Friday) and 08:00 AM to 03:00 PM (Saturday)
The Verdict: The café is a little gem in the neighbourhood that has brought the best tasting coffee to the area. The coffee offered by the café is thoughtfully sourced and there is detailed information about the how the coffee bean reached your cup.
You are also offered a lot of options to eat. There is corned-beef hash, egg preparations, duck sausage, prosciutto, toasts, muffins, smoked pork belly, and some really delicious sandwiches to start the perfect day with. Everything is made from scratch and all of it simply tastes delicious.
The ambience at the Roots café is indeed well-thought out too. There is a concrete counter top, clean white tiles, and a cosy space to sit and spend some good time at. The sandwiches are also displayed neatly behind a glass case, nothing fancy or over the top.
It is undoubtedly a great place to start your mornings. It’s an absolute must visit.

The café prides itself in presenting special coffee beans, sourced from different estates. Then the coffee beans are roasted in-house.

All the coffee preparations here are made from ethically sourced beans. These include Kochere Natural, Dumerso, Alto Del Obispo (from Columbia), Ethiopian coffee beans, and more. All these coffee beans have typical tastes, be it syrupy, citrusy, jasmine, or other exotic flavours.
