Lately I've been spending a lot of my Saturdays in cafes, it started out as a nice way to catch up with friends, but somewhere along the line it turned into a cafe exploration around Sydney. So when I heard the young roasting house The Little Marionette churns out pretty good coffee I called upon a friend, who, has been on the hunt for the best coffee Sydney has to offer ever since his trip to Melbourne a few months ago. For convenience, we decided to leave Balmain (the original cafe) for another time and headed over to their Annandale cafe.

I'm no coffee connoisseur by any means, but I have an idea of what good coffee is since I do drink my share of it these days. And true to word of mouth, the house blend was fantastic! Rich, smooth and oh the delightful bittersweet chocolatiness (is that even a word?).
Also known as Little Marionette on the Dale, this little corner cafe run by proudly self named "coffee nerds" definitely got my thumbs up for its delectable coffee and well chosen pastries, it also scored in the cool factor with its "secret" room behind a revolving bookcase. Oh and the huge smile I got from my friend after he took a few sips of his coffee told me that we'd return one day soon for an espresso, well, maybe a macchiato for me. It seems my dear friend might have at last found the best coffee Sydney has to offer.
