Reuben Hills ticks all the cool cafe boxes - Surry Hills location, industrial-style fitout, seriously good baristas and a menu of zeitgeisty Latino/Americana style eats. Instead of boring old cafe standards the dishes here are all interesting and enticing sounding. The crab tacos are bursting with the fresh flavours of seaside Mexico, while the nachos with chorizo grits are a richer, heartier take on a Tex-Mex favourite. For dessert there's the highly understated sounding 'dog's breakfast', an icecream sandwich (think a thick wedge of vanilla icecream encased in chocolate brownie slices) served with a generous curl of delicious salted caramel. All importantly, the coffee here is strong yet smooth. Swoonworthy!
