Top10 Image
Reuben Hills is a coffee roastry and café, located on Albion Street in Surry Hills, just five minutes from the CBD. Spread over two levels with the roaster upstairs and the café on ground level, Reuben Hills is a coffee-lovers haven. Owners Nathan Borg and Russell Beard travelled to over 15 countries in Central and South America to source their distinctive coffee beans and their research certainly pays off. Beyond coffee, Reuben Hills has established a reputation for serving the best salted caramel milkshake in town.

PROFILE BY BEST RESTAURANTS

Leading Sydney's specialist coffee scene is Reuben Hills. Located in Surry Hills, this twin-levelled caffeine mecca pushes all the right buttons with an in-house roaster, speciality brew lab, free cupping sessions and salted caramel milkshakes. Owners Russell Beard and Nathan Borg (of The Source fame) travelled to over 15 countries in Central and South America in order to create the perfect coffee blend and, going by Reuben's weekend queues, they've clearly struck a chord with Sydneysiders, who have been touted as the world's biggest coffee snobs.

Beyond liquid specialities, Reuben also delivers a refreshingly inventive menu. Forget eggs Benedict, Reuben is all about dishes like baleada (a Hondura speciality), which is basically an oversized flour tortilla filled with pulled pimento pork or black beans, eggs and cheese. Lunch is equally exciting with its "really fucking great fried chicken" and "dirty bird", a brioche sambo stuffed with spiced chicken, pickles and salsa. You get the picture: the coffee is good, more than good. However, the food is equally impressive and, as for the salted caramel milkshake, it's worth a visit alone.

CHEF RECOMMENDATIONS
David Hagger on 31/08/2014
Reuben Hills is a uber cafe in trendy Surry Hills that sings with a cacaphony of first class cuisine exuding a playful touch, a chic ambience and top notch coffee. Reuben Hills is famous for the Fried Chicken with chilli in a basket (comes with expletive on the menu, fair enough). This fried chicken is cooked several different ways to keep the crispy outside and juicy inside, and the aoli and the chilli sauce are magnificent to accompany.
