Now til now, there hasn’t really been a cafe in Chatswood I particularly like or regularly go to. The Asian food here is great and extensive but a bit lacking in the cafe and coffee section. What made me impulsively come here with my friend was the word in capital letters: CRONUT. I’m somehow amazed that I noticed it from the other side of the road, but I guess my food senses were strong that day. SO IF YOU’RE LOOKING FOR A CUTE CAFE IN CHATSWOOD that has cronuts without needing to trek all the way to the city (unless that’s more convenient for you, of course), READ ON!
Badmanner Cafe is a relatively new, small, cosy cafe opposite Chatswood Chase. It’s interior definitely stands out amongst the other places around, giving the ‘hipster’ vibe (honestly, I don’t know how else to describe it), which I absolutely love.
I think this place has a lot of potential! It was pretty quiet when my friend and I came but it was in the afternoon; but I do like a quiet cafe, though. Not to mention, they were playing Beyonce songs the whole time which is like, amazing. MY JAM!
Yeah, I don’t actually know the individual price for coffee here but I imagine it to be average priced… like $3.50 for a regular maybe? ANYWAY, THIS COFFEE HERE IS GOOOOOD! I found myself finishing this coffee so quickly, the texture of the milk was perfection and the coffee beans used was aromatic and just right! This is the place I will go for my coffee if I never need one in Chatswood. Yes, I am willing to walk all the way down to Chatswood Chase from the station just for this coffee. Well, maybe. My laziness is pretty overpowering at times.
This is surprisingly… my first cronut. What can I say? It just tastes like a croissant with donut-type toppings. That being said though, I would definitely order this over a croissant or a donut. VERDICT: Possibly my favourite cafe in Chatswood – friendly staff, beautiful coffee and overall, a lovely atmosphere. The breakfast menu also seems good so I would definitely come here next time for some brunch with a few friends when given the chance.
