An Afternoon of High Coffee in Cortile

Sydney’s original High Coffee experience.

Be taken on a journey to exotic places from Brazil to Uganda with a simple sniff, swirl and sip. An afternoon of High Coffee will involve our resident barista matching coffee with a selection of sweet and savoury dishes, and will turn a simple cup of coffee into an experiential dining experience. Enjoy a lazy afternoon in the beautiful surrounds of the historic sandstone arcades of the renovated Treasury Building of 1851 while sipping on a doppio espresso, cafè freddo or grappa while indulging in a selection of treats with a coffee twist.

If coffee isn’t your thing, guests can still experience a traditional Afternoon Tea with our resident tea master.
