The coffees at Kurtosh are spot on (excuse the pun). They also sell the perfect accompaniment for them, such as Hungarian cakes and pastries. They sell the cakes by the gram too, so get them to measure out a huge slab to go with your seasonal coffee blend. You can't go past their gooey chocolate fudge cookies. It'll set you back $4.90 but it is so worth it. Yum. Find it: 20B-20C St Pauls Street, Randwick NSW 2031 Website: www.kurtosh.com.au Hours: Monday-Friday: 7am-10pm, Saturday-Sunday: 8am-10pm
Bat Country is also tucked away in 'The Spot', just across from the Randwick Ritz cinema. Takeaway coffees are good here, but try to grab a seat out the front so you can watch the world go by.
