I first stumbled upon the Coffee Warehouse Cafe & Deli sometime last year after having dinner in North Strathfield. The CWCD is on Parramatta Road, very close to the turn into George Street and it is a welcome change from the car dealerships surrounding it!
It is an impressive set up with a deli, mini supermarket browsing (where they sell coffee, tea, sauces, nuts, biscuits etc), pizzeria (where you can also get takeaway), indoor seating and outdoor seating. It's open for breakfast, lunch and dinner and seems popular on Saturday nights for a late night dessert. Family friendly too judging by the large groups and babies that seem to be always present!
This time, we decided to visit for lunch because it was raining and I was in the mood for pizza.
After placing our orders, I went for a browse in the small aisles and chose a packet of wasabi peas - $4.85 for 500g, not bad. I also eyed the tempting large tubs of gelato in the freezer - if only they would last the drive home without melting!
They have an extensive coffee menu and also do barista training! My flat white was smooth and I gobbled up the little butter cookie placed on the side.
