Devon Cafe, Surry Hills

Surry Hills is never short of great cafes. A combination of delicious food and stellar coffee with friendly service is more than enough for me to enjoy a cafe. It also has to be a place where both my mind and body are just at ease. All the good qualities I look for in a cafe is in a new joint in the Surry Hills hood called Devon.

Simon - Devon Cafe's rockstar barista

It is a humble cafe that is located on Devonshire Street in Surry Hills (only a few minutes walk from Central Station). Having read so many good reviews about this place, I just had to plan a visit. The space is chic with a minimalist approach. Devon is the kind of place where you'll feel a sense of delight soon as you enter the premises. My senses got this one right!

Flat white

I was excited to know that they use Coffee Alchemy beans for their coffee! My skinny flat white ($3.50) had a double ristretto shot of the Galileo blend.  It had a full body with notes of chocolate and nutty flavour that punches through the milk. The milk had perfect temperature and thin velvety foam.
BELT Brioche

The B.E.L.T brioche ($9) was another hit! It had bacon, egg, lettuce and tomato (hence the name) with some sublime aioli! The brioche bun from Victoire bakery was fluffy, buttery and holds the whole sandwich together well. The sandwich can use a little bit more bacon but nevertheless, it was overall awesome!
Little lost bread (PB&J brioche French toast)

The little lost bread ($16) is both comforting and luscious. It's a peanut butter and jam brioche French toast with warm banana, jam, nutella and peanut butter ice cream. It is rich but all the components work really well together as the ultimate treat.

Both food and coffee blew me away. On top of that, the barista and wait staff wore vibrant smiles. I've already returned to Devon since my first visit because my experience was that great!
