If there’s one thing that University Students need for them to get through class, it’s Coffee. Lots of it.
Nothing smashes an 8-page reading, 2 lectures and 4 written essays, more than a double shot Vanilla Latte with Almond Milk.
However, If there’s one thing that can be agreed upon, it’s that some coffee spots are better than others, and if you’ve decided to study in Australia, then you better take up being a Coffee Snob as a full-time role.
Because if you’re going to arrive to your 9am tutorial with a heavy hangover, none of your tutorial questions completed and 3 lectures behind, you may as well do it with a tasty as hell coffee in hand.
We’ve put together a guide that will tell you where to get the best coffee around your Sydney University:
16 University Avenue, Macquarie Park
If there’s one thing you can count on, it’s coffee at Piccolo Me. Imagine you’ve skipped your 3-hour 10am lecture to catch up on your readings (keep telling yourself that), and you want to set yourself up somewhere that’s cosy and stimulating. Piccolo Me has its own café area, complete with funky tables and friendly staff. Just set up your readings (or Netflix), order a Latte, and enjoy some serenity not too far from the W building.
A30 Western Ave and Physics Rd, Camperdown
You won’t find a more central Coffee spot than Ralph’s Cafe. Located dead in the heart of USYD, this coffee spot is home to the best Iced Latte on campus. If you’re running late to class because the busses from Central were jam packed, you may as well walk-in 20 minutes late with a Ralph’s Café coffee in your hand because it’ll make being late all worth it.
Western Sydney University
James Ruse Dr, Parramatta
We can’t all be lucky to get a 1 day a week timetable, and if so, we definitely don’t have the funds to be buying coffee every single day. If that’s the case, The Bakehouse is the place for you.
The Bakehouse has crazy cheap coffees, guaranteed to not break the bank. Also, they’ve got cakes and other delicious pastries that will have you snacking all lecture long! To-go please!

If you’re class is in CB11, then you’re double lucky, because this central location will have you grabbing drinks and snacks 24/7!
