Tucked away in a side street just off Glebe Point Road, Wedge Espresso is a place where lazy weekend brunch is a serious business. Space is a little limited in this popular local and there are just a handful of small tables, so fitting large groups might be tricky, but perfect for an intimate catch up with a friend or two. And with ample space at the bench, this is the ideal spot to enjoy a sunny morning solo with the newspaper.
If you take coffee seriously, then you’re in luck – coffee is the real deal here. Sourced from some of Australia’s best roasters, and with a multitude of options both hot and cold, you can be sure that your caffeine needs will be met. Strong Italian style espresso brings all the intensity you hope for, and the Wedge’s own cold brew is a refreshing hit on a hot day. The addition of the iced mocha and the Italian Affogato rounds out the assortment for those craving a little bit of a sweet treat. If coffee is not your thing, then never fear, there is also an impressive assortment of herbal teas complete as well as cold-pressed juice options and fresh juice blends that will delight your tastebuds. The ice cold milo is also a crowd favourite that will take you back to your childhood.
When it comes to the food, the Wedge is no slouch either. The tiny kitchen manages to serve an impressive array of breakfast and brunch options. Classics such as the brekky roll are improved with the best ingredients and sit alongside delicious and innovative options such as the spanner crab and chilli scramble and the sesame crusted eggplant sandwich. Meat lovers, vegetarians and vegans alike will find their happy place here in this bustling little cafe.
