Superbly photographed, this book showcases unique and tasteful cafes in and around Sydney
In five decades, Australia has gone from a nation of tea drinkers to one of feisty, true-to-Italian-migrant espresso drinking. Café culture is engrained in a unique way into Sydney's phenomenal harbor topography and colorful neighborhood character. From bayside to beachside, bohemian inner-city areas to the upbeat downtown, university zones and upper-class residential areas, each Sydney suburb has its own distinct flavor and café to match.
Café Life Sydney explores how espresso culture has percolated up from its Italian roots to be an essential part of Australian lifestyle.
