Shaw St Espresso – coffee shop in Bexley North, NSW


A quality coffee shop in Bexley North, which is maybe not a part of Sydney you’d expect a find like this. Great for a post swim coffee after going to the new Bexley Aquatic Centre.

The review of this coffee shop in Bexley North, NSW is designed to fit in with our current tour of New South Wales outdoor swimming pools and this coffee shop was great for a post swim coffee after a dip in Bexley Aquatic Centre in NSW. There’s no book planned for now but a new website So for now take a look at our earlier books…

Crossing Paths, Crossing Borders

This 2016 publication recounts our journey from Yorkshire to Australia via 25 countries. It includes an annex with our 100 top tips for coffee or tea on the road, including this venue.

Read the full description of this book on the books page and if you like what you see you can buy it from there too..



As I turned into Shaw Street in Bexley North, I wasn’t too sure of what I was going to find in terms of quality coffee. But what a gem this is and surely the best coffee in Bexley North and for a bit of distance beyond.

They serve up the excellent Reformatory Caffeine Lab on their espresso machine. Roasted in Surry Hills in the centre of Sydney, this coffee makes for a delightfully smooth brew. There’s a real buzz to this coffee shop and clearly the locals all come here for their caffeine intake, but I was happy to perch on a couple of stools out the front and watch the world go by. Nice spot.

Getting there

The coffee shop is just a stone’s throw from Bexley North train station and a slightly larger stone (or longer throw to the M5 motorway heading south west out of Sydney). More importantly for me, it is also less than a mile on foot from Bexley Aquatic Centre.
