Swell Coffee – Wollongong, NSW



Best coffee in Wollongong? Quite probably. They not only roast their own in this great coffee shop in Wollongong’s CBD but they’ll even offer to fine tune your home espresso machine if you give them half a chance.

The review of this coffee shop in Wollongong is designed to fit in with our current tour of New South Wales outdoor swimming pools. There’s no book planned for now but a new website http://oceanpoolsnsw.net.au. So for now take a look at our earlier books…

I’ve drunk Swell Coffee in numerous coffee shops around the Illawarra and they are very good at keeping tabs on quality when their coffee is being used by others. But it’s always good to get back to base and taste the coffee by the people who roast it, blend it and distribute it. The house blend is excellent, but they also have a set of single origin coffees to choose from if you prefer the special quality that usually brings. This is a great place for coffee in Wollongong; friendly vibe and casual atmosphere, tucked away from the main shopping streets, with seating outside or in. Good banana breads too!
