Residing in the 115 year old building made famous by its cousins Seamstress and Sweatshop, sits a haven for inner-city coffee lovers: Drystore Espresso.

The tiny venue takes the term "inventive use of space" to a new level. There are boxes of yet to be used products acting as wall decor, bits and pieces from the Seamstress kitchen thrown in wherever there is free space and hanging from the ceiling are the venues token Chinese cheongsams and other clothing curios.

Though the bench space is remarkably limited, should you be lucky enough to score a seat, it doesn't feel boxed in. Generous windows open out onto the street allowing natural light to flood the tiny venue and as well as providing easy access for busy city workers after a fast takeaway coffee by Naked Espresso.
