Exploring Surrey Hills – Kawa Cafe

Australia Surry Hills Sydney
Posted: April 25, 2013

Earlier this month, I wanted to start checking out my local neighborhood, Surry Hills. I have been living in Surry Hills/Darlinghurst for nearly 2 months but had not yet properly explored my neighborhood.  It was raining on this particular Saturday and therefore the beach was not an option.

I walked down Crown street from Oxford street and found a number of different cafes.  This one is the first of many to be reviewed on  I went to Kawa on 348a Crown Street.  I read a lot of reviews about Kawa, one saying it is Sydney’s best cafe, so I thought I would check it out.  It was a nice cafe, friendly staff, neutral decor, good selection of food, but the service was a bit slow even though when I was there, it was not busy.  Usually on weekends, expect to wait a while for a table on the weekends, people are not moving in a hurry.

Don’t expect free WiFi, not all cafes in Sydney have this, but it Kawa was a nice place to go, do a bit of work, blogging, come with friends.  The cafe is open 8:00 – 5:00pm Monday to Friday and 8:00 – 4:00pm Saturday to Sunday. Why not check it out for yourselves this weekend?
