Although Subi’s perhaps better known for its nightlife than its coffee, the suburb has a cluster of fine cafes, some of which are among the very best in the city.

From cafes that double as wholefood stores to all-day diners that become heaving bars in the evenings, all of these spots are unified by their ability to deliver a great brew.
