I am a hungry artist living and working in Sydney. I am completing a philosophy degree and enjoy life.

Happy Little Me
Is this the smallest café in the Eastern Suburbs? It is possible that this diminutive space is the most popular little hole-in-the-wall café that you will find in Sydney. Somehow Sydney real estate madness has hit the wall of insanity with a bang and been knocked down completely, recovered and scaled that wall - enter the mini café space. More at home in Tokyo than Sydney, this concept is practical and good for the environment.
Since most customers just want to grab a take way coffee it is perfect; however, you have to wonder if this is a chicken and egg type argument – what came first the tiny eat-in area or lack of eat-in customer demand? Who knows and who cares the coffee is great here.
This innovative new business is taking a risk and that should be rewarded, it is so brave to rethink and even shape customer's expectations. The saving of electricity, rent and staff seem to mean that the focus really is on the coffee. Finally, a café has arrived in the Eastern Suburbs that is actually focused on the coffee rather than the trendy atmosphere of the café itself. This trend could really take off all over Sydney. Since coffee is the star attraction, you really will benefit from giving it a try here. The espresso is perfect and the Nitro brew – with nitrogen infused into the coffee during the process of brewing it is not to be missed. If you have been the USA, you will recognise the authentic American-style filtered coffee. It is a taste that brings back memories and there is something about the way that it goes down smooth that delights the senses.
Just in time for this heat wave comes Little Me Coffee in Waverly with their range of fantastic sodas. They make a really refreshing treat. They come in a range of flavours; mango, mixed berry and Tahitian lime and Feijoa - just perfect for fussy kids and big kids alike.
They can make a tasty granola, have some nice pastries on offer and you can even get some moreish mushrooms on toast or avocado and fetta if you are feeling peckish. The breakfast items rival the quality of those in conventional sized cafes in terms of quality and considering the size of the place are made lightning fast. Soon to be the early morning dog walkers stop in place, Little Me is fantastic for locals.
Little Me Tiny Café Waverly goes to show that all you really need is great coffee, a fantastic barista and caffeine obsessed customers to succeed.
