Double Mac is primary a takeaway joint that has a few seats out the front if you feel like staying for awhile. I suppose most people are grabbing coffee on their way to the office so the lack of seats isn't a bit deal. When I have time I always prefer to sit and enjoy my coffee...especially if I'm on holidays...so I appreciate that there are a few seats on offer.
The only breakfast/brunch/lunch offering in terms of food is toasted sandwiches that are pre-made and just waiting to be toasted. It's simple but hits the spot and a good idea for someone operating a cafe in such a small space. I opt for a toasted cheese and tomato sandwich which I think possibly came with a slice of Kraft Singles...love it. I hoping in time the selection of ingredients expands. I can see "gourmet toasties" being a big hit as this would make a perfect Saturday breakfast...coffee and a fancy toastie.
It's a STINKING hot day when I visit Double Mac and as much as I want to try the coffee all I can face is a Charlies Blood Orange Juice.
Sadly juice has no caffeine! I was pleasantly surprised to find that Double Mac serves iced-coffee. Owner Chris has installed a small ice-machine in the cafe which makes me VERY happy! The coffee is good and really welcomed on such a HOT day. I also grab a friand - I think it may be a lemon drizzle friand, so good!
Double Mac is at Shop 8, 85 Macquarie Street, Parramatta. They are also open on Saturday's until noon - yay for more weekend options. Owner Chris is super friendly and this little spot is a welcomed addition to the 'hood!
