Bank Corner Cafe

Published November 15th 2012


Tucked away in a corner off the main road in Newcastle is this sweet little cafe. It is a decadent slice of culture and class nestled between sluggish Hunter Street and the railway line.

Although smaller than some of the other cafes around, it presents itself well creating an intimate and relaxed atmosphere. I really loved the Egyptian themed decor which gives it a genuine flair of originality, and authenticity. The lovely big window opening onto the street lets in plenty of natural sunlight - absolutely gorgeous on a sunny morning, such as today.

I only wish I was hungry at the time; I would have loved to spend a little more time there and have lunch. The Bank Corner is a delightful little oasis, I recommend checking it out.

Coffee

For $2.50 I ordered a single espresso (I just wasn't up to a double, as I had 2 shots prior) and was made by a delightful young man, who was super friendly and obviously knew his coffee. The espresso came in a black cup on a bright orange saucer - it's these quirky touches that in my mind, makes or breaks a coffee house.

The coffee was smooth and delicious, despite me letting it go cold trying to get my camera settings perfect. Obviously, the coffee wasn't as strong as what I have ordered else where, because I only ordered a single, but it was pretty damn good!
