You may remember Dan Brown from such places as the hole-in-the-wall café on Hunter Street or the time his famous mullet starred in Sydney Fashion Week. Well, now you can find him, along with his brother Joshua and sister Sophie, at their latest venture, Lords Coffee & Associates. With Toby’s Estate Coffee ready to caffeinate your system, an outdoor lounge waiting to provide you with ultimate comfort, and a Bowie mural that looks like he’s melting under the recent heat wave, this is one coffee stop you can’t miss. Served with a side of a constantly changing pastry and toasties menu, you can either people watch on the street or be entertained by the always-hilarious Brown family humour. So if you’re after a coffee shop that will not only give you the perfect fuel for the day ahead, but also a laid back, friendly social scene, Lords Coffee & Associates may just be your new haunt this summer. Oh and if you’re wondering about the name, Lords pays homage to Dan’s well-known alter ego Mullet Lord, and the fact Dan promises to serve you the most legendary, or Lordish, coffee around.
