Your local boutique café for your caffeine fix.
Tucked away in the unassuming Don Arcade, the newly opened Dux Coffee Bar is a hidden gem worth visiting for your caffeine pick me up. The café’s décor is bright and modernistic, with white-washed walls, clean lines and Nordic-inspired fit-out. Daylight streams in the venue through the tall windows installed high up in the lofted ceiling.
A stretch of handsome minimalistic metal bar beckons sit-in patrons, though capacity is limited to five guests, given the current safety restrictions. More al fresco seatings are available outside, where visitors can enjoy their coffee while doing a spot of people watching.
Quality brews is the name of the game at Dux Coffee Bar. The café sources their beans from the much esteemed Dukes Coffee Roasters. A curated choice of Seasonal Espresso and Single Origin will be much welcome to coffee aficionados. Besides espresso coffee, the café also offers tea, chai and hot chocolate. For guests looking for alternatives to dairy milk (Riverina dairy), there’s Bonsoy as well as Oat-Ly’s excellent oat milk.
In addition to excellent beverages, the café offers delectable pastries delivered fresh daily by Cobb Lane Bakery. The Almond Croissant and the Carrot Cake are perfect accompaniment to a cup of flat white. For your next visit to Dux Coffee Bar, bring home the decadent Peanut Butter & Chocolate cookie as a treat for your little one.
