Double Roasters is one of the latest cafes to grace the burgeoning Marrickville cafe scene, already home to SMH’s cafe of the year Coffee Alchemy, a Bourke Street Bakery outlet, kid friendly Post Cafe and a gazillion others.
Double Roasters has it’s own brand of coffee roasted on-site, and features exposed beams and industrial chic decor. The crowd is a typical inner-west mix of 20 to 40 something hipsters, students and families. On the plus side, the brunch and lunch offerings are simple and delicious and generally under $10, with most hitting the very purse friendly $7.50 mark. The coffee is delicious and smooth, albeit mild in flavour.
On the downside there are no highchairs for the hipster babies (though there are colouring books – tick) and the service can be a little erratic when they’re busy. All is forgiven though for luscious poached eggs and sauted mushrooms totally hitting the Sunday brunch-lusting spot. Bonus points for big bunches of hydrangeas and cool industrial light pendants – think Doug up on Bourke, with coffee and food.
