WE ASKED, YOU ANSWERED: Where to find the most chill cold brew in Newcastle

Food fads and trends may come and go in this fair city, but one that refuses to wane is our love of all things coffee – a truism that extends to the cold brew variety.

Ahh, cold brew, that perfect compromise that allows those caffeine friends among us to enjoy our favourite bevvy without melting our faces off in the sweltering summer sun.

We asked you recently were in this fecund, coffee drenched town to find the best examples of cold brew. So, without further ado, here are your top five cold brew hot spots.

Mr. Sister

Westfield Kotara
Northcott Drive, Kotara


What better way to keep your sanity in the Westfield Christmas rush than with a full-bodied cold brew?

Well, thankfully the good folks over at Mr. Sister have cottoned onto that fact with their glorious house-made variety.

Having already established themselves as one of the finest hot coffee purveyors in this town, it appears, by the amount of love shown by you, that they are able to work both ends of the coffee spectrum with equal aplomb!

Bold and full of flavour, this is the perfect pick me up, especially with lashings of ice and a splash of jersey milk.

Main Coffee Co

2/686 Main Road, Edgeworth

When we ran out best coffee poll back in April, this Edgeworth coffee house, surprisingly took out the top spot.

So it is no surprise that the name would pop up again when discussing cold brew.

Another cafe that prepares its own blend, there was a LOT of love for the oily-black nectar. And if their espresso is anything to go by, the cold brew here s sure to be next level.

Little Wolf Espresso

Coffee cart – various

This roving coffee cart does its thing all around Newcastle and Maitland and while we here at Newcastle Live haven’t sampled their wares of yet, you certainly have and you couldn’t wait to tell us about it.

Yet another outlet that brews and bottles its own cold brew ( a common theme) this one is definitely on our to-try list.

Oh, and they do puppychinos, too. Cute.

Darks Coffee Roasters

294 Turton Road, New Lambton

These guys are some of the heaviest hitters on the local coffee scene, thanks in no small part to picking up a gold, silver, and bronze medal at the  2019 Australian International Coffee Awards.

Again made in-house, Darks cold brew can be found at their ‘container’ outlet at McDonald Jones Stadium (294 Turton Rd, New Lambton) and you can also take home the bottled version so you can keep your caffeine addiction behind closed doors.

Honestly, give this one a go is you haven’t already. It’s caffeine heaven.

Laneway on Darby

143 Darby Street, Cooks Hill

Perhaps better known for their sun eclipsing ‘freak shakes’ it appears that Laneway On Darby has a pretty decent side hustle in the cold brew market.

Competition for the coffee dollar is more than fierce on Darby Street – a pretty fair indication that the cold brews coming out f Laneway are something to write home about.
