Alpha Espresso Bar – coffee shop in Epping, NSW


Good community feel to this coffee shop in Epping. With main road and railway cutting through Epping, I felt lucky I found this place for my post-swim coffee.

The review of this coffee shop in Epping NSW is designed to fit in with our tour of New South Wales outdoor swimming pools and this coffee shop was great for a post swim coffee after a dip in Epping outdoor pool. 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..






The Pablo & Rusty’s coffee drew me into Alpha, and didn’t disappoint. Apparently P&R themselves used to run this coffee shop in Epping but when the new owners took on the place, they wisely chose to keep the same roasters on.

My visit was quick and I only had time to sample a coffee and pastry, which was decent enough. After trawling past a lot of pretty ordinary looking places for a cuppa on the other side of the tracks, I was pleased to find good coffee in Epping and would certainly come back here on a future visit..

Getting there

It’s a stone’s throw from Epping train station on Sydney’s northern suburbs line, but make sure you leave the station on the right side of the tacks, heading east. I drove and could only find parking on the other side of the railway near the big supermarket, but none of the coffee shops over that side appealed to me.
