Had a really nice latte and my wife's Americano wad equally good friendly efficient staff. A few outside seats on the sidewalk didn't try anything from the bakery (too early in my day) but the baked goods looked promising

This unassuming little cafe served the best coffee I have tasted during my 4 months of travelling in Canada from Vancouver to the east coast! And a great vibe in the place. And a delicious oatie cookie to accompany it: crisp and delicious, not too...More

We got a warm welcome at Doktor Luke's - fresh, hot coffee, excellent oat cakes (yay!) and comfortable seating with good wi-fi service. It was, in other words, everything you want from a coffee shop. Were we closer, we'd drop by often.

We stopped off when our cruise ship docked here and desperately wanted a great coffee. We found it! Awesome shop with friendly, attentive service. Also loved the gluten-free peanut butter cookie.

Not only is the coffee amazing. Chai latte and desserts demand the same reverence. Just when I thought that was enough I find Doktor Luke socializing and chatting it up with her patrons like a good friend welcoming guests in their home. A breath of...More

Got a great cup of coffee and my wife got tea. We each had a pastry and enjoyed the calm and friendly atmosphere. Gluten Free choices available and the pastries were outstanding.

Description
We look forward to welcoming you to Doktor Luke's in Downtown Sydney. Our espresso bar has everything a coffee aficionado could dream of, and our baristas have been trained by our own master roaster. If you don't drink coffee, you'll find hot apple cider and hot chocolate alongside a collection of black, herbal, and green teas. We also serve a host of creative cold drinks, including our wildly popular frappes, made with Ghirardelli cocoa, and Italian sodas. We also offer an assortment of delectable baked goods, ranging from croissants to our famous pumpkin chocolate chip loaf. We are an independent coffee house, dedicated to our customers' delight and the planet's longevity. Here is where taste and ethics meet.
