We know, it often feels like a lot of cafes around Sydney may take coffee a little too seriously – but when you come across places like Double Cross Espresso Bar on Willoughby Road, you instantly forgive them and remember why some places get it so much more right than others. There is no way to describe the coffee at Double Cross other than perfect. That means the whole thing, from how the beans were sourced and roasted, to how the shots are pulled and perfectly-steamed-milky concoctions presented. However, this is not one of Crows Nest’s best cafes because of coffee alone, as Double Cross dish up a creative, innovative breakfast and lunch menu of real quality. Think souffle omelettes, house-made matcha tiramisu, or a candied sweet potato and baby carrot salad, just for starters.
Mentaiko pasta was absolutely delicious!! Service was very good and attentive. Definitely planning on coming back to try the rest of their menu.
Great food and drinks. Has its own unique style. The Matcha Green Tea and Taro Lates were nice. Friendly service. Just suffered a bit by its popularity - tables were full so book. Not a problem if you are not in a rush.
Excellent food and coffee, but portion size of my (breakfast) meal was a bit small - portion sizes for everyone else was fine. Really interesting combinations and love that they serve 63 degree eggs (which were cooked beautifully), instead of the standard poached/scrambled/fried. Will definitely be back
Food is good, but there some some not available even their signiture dish, it's better sitting outside in summer, it's a little bit hot sitting in, although they have the aircon on.
Great staff. Warmly greeted as soon as I arrived with table waiting. Had high chair available for Toddlers. Good menu, but waited a while for food to arrive at the table. Overall a solid effort. Would come back again.
Excellent service and exciting range of breakfast options - some unusual choices! Liked the healthy options and very good coffee. Would recommend and will certainly be back
Service was great but there was no table reserved and also no shade as the umbrellas were broken. It’s great that you split the bill.
The food was ok however the matcha latte was blend and almost no taste at all. If you are going to serve matcha in your cafe you would need to step it up.
