products

lavazza coffee, focaccia, panini, drinks...this cheesy panini paradise has the strongest coffee in darlinghurst and great fresh focaccias. italian gelati to layer on top of all that salami and pastrami. chow down all the italian cookies you can before exploding... and all for under 10 bucks.

clientele

hungover locals, film directors, and assorted underemployed darlinghurst trendoids.

service

no nonsense. order at the counter but don't stuff up your order. patience threshold of 1 second.

best no brainer lunch in town. no frills canteen style but good fresh food. a tropicana chicken salad and a latte thanks. all for about US$10. full of out of work or retired actors, tv directors, and local flora and fauna. it even has its own handy atm machine.
