A deliciously fresh and friendly espresso bar in Mayfield West
To find Zaaki Espresso you'll need to drive along Mayfield's Maitland Road, all the way through the main drag, past the pubs, servos and shopping centres, and there, on your left, in the last block of shops, just before the speed camera, sits this delicious little espresso bar.
Penny and Anis are the duo behind this cutesy little café, with Penny taking care of the Campos Coffee beans and Anis is more than happy to look after all the kitchen duties.
Beautifully laid out, Zaaki Espresso has made the most of the tiny space. Crisp white tiles and pendulum lights border the retro La Marzocco coffee machine. The Zaaki Espresso menu cleverly combines a collection of middle eastern inspired meals, like falafel wraps, shakshuka eggs, mezze plates, plus an mouth watering range of sweets. My personal favourite is the baklava cheesecake!
Thanks to Penny's Greek heritage and Anis's Jordanian roots these two tasty cultures combine deliciously. The traditional and authentic flavours inject into the kitchen are sure to make your mouth water and lure you to Mayfield West.
So next time you're in Mayfield West, and cruising along Maitland Road, make sure you stop by Zaaki Espresso.
