Bench Espresso

West End

Bench Espresso is one of West End’s best kept secrets – a funky little outpost of a coffee bar/art gallery reached via a laneway between Otello Trattoria Pizzeria and Ouzori Greek restaurant.

And it’s well worth the detour off the main stretch for what is arguably the best coffee in an inner city neighbourhood where there’s no such thing as a bad coffee.

For Bench are in the business of great coffee, made with their own signature blend of beans and promoting emerging artists, whose works are rotated monthly. Pull up a chair on the little patch of astroturf garden outside or in the cosy interior where works of art for sale adorn the walls and a bookshelf contains books, card games, a sketch book and coloured pencils.
