A nice vibe with great tasting food and really good service. Being a group of girlfriends we stayed a bit longer than most of the other patrons but the staff weren't trying to move us on. Lovely people and we were all very pleased with...More

In the mornings, a good well made flat white, and something savoury is what I need to start my day, and this place has that in spades. Seriously good coffee, great breakfast options and super service, and a budget price!

Favourite for years now. Vargabar is a smaller little joint with some real soul! Coffee is great and the food are always fantastic, topped off by the awesome staff you have running the place. Packs out pretty early on weekends so get in early to...More

great coffee, very helpful and friendly wait staff. Excellent food. Away from the main street, but close by, which means you don't have the constant noise of a busy street. Bit of a tight squeeze inside though.

What a great little find! Lovely little cafe with a varied menu. I can recommend the delicious halloumi burger and polenta fries. The smoothies are heavenly and for once in Sydney I found a decent coffee! Service was hilarious - Simon is great!

This is a tiny and lovely cafe with a few tables indoor and some chairs outdoor. The coffee is one of my favourite in Sydney and staff always welcoming. Every day they have a special dish for 10$. I only tried the quesadias (that's for...More

VargaBar Espresso is tucked away in a tidy little corner just off the hustle and bustle of King Street and is the gem of Newtown. Known for its style, and very well known to the locals, you will feel like one too after only just a couple of visits. VargaBar Espresso is all about you, and that’s the reason we have been here 15+ years and still going strong.

The hardest thing to find anywhere and lets be honest it’s rare to find all four.
A combination of all four critical cafe elements:
1. Killer coffee
2. Delicious food
3. Super friendly service
4. A chilled place to people watch

Well look no further and come chill with us.
A great place to sip away the day…
