The best flat white in Potts Point

Potts Point cafes: Where to swing your cat to find the best coffee

The best flat white in Potts Point

We’re all a little coffee-obsessed in Australia. But why wouldn’t we be? No-one makes coffee like we do. Smooth, creamy, divine, you’d be hard-pressed NOT to find a decent one on the streets of any city. However, there is always a chance you may swing your feline companion and end up disappointed – something we do not want to happen – so we’ve put together a list of our Potts Point favourites. And, as Potts Point locals and local business supporters, we live, breathe, and eat our way around on a regular basis.


Fratelli Paradiso
Restaurant 12-16 Challis Avenue, Potts Point NSW 2011

It’s at the top spot for a reason. Whether you’re looking for coffee and cake (you can’t go past the infamous Tiramisu) or full lunch/dinner options, this Italian favourite offers fresh, home-cooked Italian fare; just like mamma makes.

Room 10
10 Llankelly Place, Potts Point NSW 2011

There’s a good chance you might miss this cozy café, tucked away down a Darlinghurst Road side street. It’s a tiny opening, crammed with tables that overflow onto the laneway; but its coffee is big news.

Primary Coffee Roasters
1/9 Ward Avenue, Potts Point NSW 2011

When you visit, you can be forgiven for thinking you’re sitting in a showroom rather than a café. However, the taste is definitely not just for show.

 Joseph Hyde
36 Llankelly Place, Potts Point NSW 2011

A serious foodies’ café who like a little wordplay. With food to match most dietary requirements, with no compromise on taste, everyone will be catered for.


Coffee Tea & Me Potts Point
87c Macleay Street, Potts Point NSW 2011

They took a copy of the Redfern hole-in-the-wall and brought it across to Potts Point – and we will be forever grateful.


197 Victoria Street, Potts Point NSW 2011

Coffee to shout about and a Thai-influenced menu to enjoy. This is a local-business good news story. Started by a young former Muay Thai fighter and his wife, all the ingredients are fresh, all the spices blended in-house. It’s easy to see why this is a favourite amongst the Potts Point locals.

Maurice Baguette
Shop 17/82 Darlinghurst Road, Potts Point NSW 2011

There’s something quite delicious about a freshly-baked baguette. And you can get your hands on just that here, to accompany your fresh and delicious coffee.

33 Bayswater Road, Potts Point NSW 2011

Everything about your experience here will be polished. From the perfectly made coffee to the floorboards. You can relax and enjoy your breakfast, brunch, lunch, or afternoon tea. Plus, it’s pet-friendly so you can take the cat with you.

9 Springfield Avenue, Potts Point NSW 2011

Sometimes simple and uncomplicated is just what you need, all day – as long as it’s delicious. And that’s exactly what you’ll get here.


Gypsy Espresso
6/81 Macleay Street, Potts Point NSW 2011

When a café roasts their own coffee, you know it’s going to be good. And good it is. In fact, the coffee’s so good, they teach. The beans are roasted at the Gypsy headquarters and coffee school in Alexandra.
