Pony Express O – 4/5
You’ll need to hunt for this cafe because I can assure you, it won’t be one you just stumble past. Located on quiet Mayfair Street (and then through the carpark and around the corner into the old stable) Pony Express O is a hidden gem.
When I visited, there were two friendly baristas and two coffee machines. If you want a macchiato you head straight to the second coffee machine which is only used to make my favourite coffee style. The coffee blend changes regularly but is always a single origin. The machine by the door uses their standard blend and makes all the other coffees. My coffee was really strong and flavourful. There is an honesty system (you can just drop your exact change into the money funnel) and as they don’t serve much food (just cookies!), you can BYO your own food.
Open only Monday to Friday – head there for a pre-work coffee or take your lunch. Look out for the fantastic mural in the carpark when you’re searching for it. (Did you notice the emu?).
