Shenkin has cafes in 3 locations -Erskineville, Enmore and Newtown. Newtown has the espresso bar with plenty of house-made pastries and snacks whilst the other two have a more extensive kitchen and cafe menu. The espresso bar has room for about four people propped up at the large people-watching window. And King street has plenty to see. The other window allows take-away access directly from the friendly baristas. The decor is cosy-deli style with a touch of quirky industrial, and the coffee is a delicious Mecca blend. A double ristretto is magnificent and makes this place a cool little destination cafe, or a speedy takeaway for time-poor connoisseurs.
