The best food & coffee in Mayfield & Tighes Hill

By Amanda Kirkman

It’s been a bit over 12 months since moving North-West, and as promised we’ve done the leg work for you — here are our favourite selections of coffee & food in Mayfield & Tighes Hill.

First up our Tighes Hill favourites, whilst our office isn’t located here, it’s where we live and walk past these favourites before and after work on the regular.


Praise Joe

8/20 Elizabeth St, Tighes Hill
I don’t play favourites with my coffee — but if I had to this would be it. I was so happy when these guys reopened last week, serving coffee, toasties and treats out of their side window again. The regular line up of locals every morning says it all.
