  • Where:119 Claremont Cres Swanbourne
  • Tel:6162 9533
  • Good for:stopping by for a quick coffee and a read of the paper on your day off.

The blink-and-you’ll-miss-it cafĂ© is housed in that little flurry of shops on Claremont Crescent in Swanbourne, just across from the train line. Just follow the trail of people heading there for their morning caffeine hit. The Daily Espresso Bar enjoys a steady stream of patrons once they throw open their doors in the morning, with friends catching up over a coffee before heading their separate ways and locals dropping by for a quick takeaway on their way to the office.

The focus here is on the coffee, but if you are feeling a bit peckish there are options to satisfy you for breakfast and lunch: mini, chocolate pastries; fresh muffins, hearty rolls and toasted sandwiches. Due to the size of The Daily, most people opt for takeaways, but there are bar stools and decent sized tables inside if you want to sit back and read the paper whilst you get to know the charming and cheerful staff.
