It seems that there is a coffee shop in every corner of Sydney. People love their coffee. In fact, Australia even invented the flat white. It is not surprising though that there will be talk about coffee shops, and this one is no exception. Last weekend, I went to the other end of Sydney in Blacktown and after my legs got too tired, I found a spot at Oliver Brown.
The green and lighter colours of the Oliver Brown brand is a refreshing change from the usual brown and dark shades common to coffee and chocolate shops.
Oliver Brown has the potential to rival Max Brenner as chocolatier. My daughter had a iced white chocolate, and while it was too sweet for my liking, Belgian chocolate has great reputation (and as everyone, well, almost, in MKR says, "everybody loves chocolate!"). Oliver Brown at Westpoint Shopping Centre in Blacktown does not have a spectacular shopfront, but it has a great central location.
Flat White is an Australian coffee invention, there's one in every coffee shop across the continent.
The coffee was good, but if I have to be picky, I think the presentation was not too well. Little smudges of chocolate powder were on the saucer, but who cares? That did not prevent me from enjoying my coffee.
When in town around Blacktown and craving for your daily fix of caffeine, come to Oliver Brown.
