Dark Horse Espresso

Hidden behind a roller door in what is best described as a typical Wickham warehouse, Dark Horse Espresso is a real diamond in the rough. Whilst some of you may not have yet to discovered it, the tradies around Wickham have known about this place for years.
For what this teeny-tiny, almost, hole in the wall size cafe lacks in size, it makes up for with some big food and coffee flavours.
Dark Horse Espresso
Dark Horse Espresso are renowned for their brilliant coffee with 24 Greenway St often having an eclectic crowd milling around the front waiting for their morning fix.

If you're in a hurry duck in for a bite to eat on the run, or if you can snag a seat take your time and enjoy Dark Horse's surprisingly luxe menu. Choose between a fresh list of toasties, banana bread and slightly more substantial dishes like the smoked salmon, silverbeet, corriander and caraway salad with soft boiled egg on top.
Dark Horse Espresso
Dark Horse Espresso brings the Novocastrian café culture to an area of Newcastle that's historically been known for its warehouses and industrial pursuits and now doubles as the front door to another exciting addition, The Hair and Beauty Project, should you need a bit of a sprucing up.

There were a few unexpected additions when we last dropped in, such as the art wall which provides local artists with a space to display their pieces, such as the spectacular 'Deer Friends' by Vanessa Lewis.

We also loved loved loved the charming Hasami Porcelin plates and bowls that took our toastie to a whole other level. Exquisite in design and touch, and supplied by fellow teeny-tiny arts and objects shop High Swan Dive, these delicate plates and bowls do require just a tad bit more concentration when handling your tasty dish, they also provide a little more quirk to this already clever and cuisiney cafe.

Drop in one morning and experience Dark Horse Espresso for yourself.
