Recently my great aunt came to Sydney from Malaysia stay with us for three months. She's a coffee lover, or rather a caffeine addict should I say. Breakfast, lunch, dinner.. wherever she went she would try a coffee. Anyone who's been to Malaysia will know that good western style coffee is HARD to find. So it was fitting that we take her for one more Sydney-coffee before she flew back to Malaysia. Where better than her favourite coffee spot in Sydney. High - a cafe on High Street in Randwick that apparently serves excellent Toby's Estate coffee. I'm no expert as I don't drink coffee but from all accounts it's a very good coffee indeed and it looks it too:

Large latte - coffee really is the star of High cafe.
 But it's not just the coffee that tastes good, all day breakfast does too. Avocado, tomato and basil on sourdough toast looked light and fresh. Poached eggs with sourdough toast and a side of avocado was polished off with not a scrap to spare, but for me and my great aunt, we just couldn't go past the scrambled eggs with sourdough toast and 2 sides of bacon to share. The bacon is crispy, the scrambled eggs not too runny with the right amount of creaminess and the sourdough toast soft and fresh. It's a comfortable space too - small but cosy with some artwork on the walls and coffee display at the entrance. There was a continuous trickle of customers and not too many staff but service was still friendly. My family will definitely be back for the coffee, it'll be bacon for me again too!
