A transformation has taken place on Lambton Road, Broadmeadow. What used to be a sweltering fish and chip shop, is now a light, airy sandwich and espresso bar, with a laneway courtyard. A couple of ducks decorate the white-tiled, grey bricked space and complement the pastel coffee machine that sits pretty on the counter.

This isn’t a cool inner-city venue. This is quick, casual and honest food, made for those on the go, with a guarantee of quality coffee made by someone you may recognise from his days at some of Newcastle’s best-loved cafes.

Tristan, formerly of One Penny Black and more recently, Welsh Blacks, is quick with the banter and speedy with the coffee.

Speaking of coffee, Rubber Duckies is all about simple coffee well made: quality beans from expert roasters, Toby’s Estate in Sydney. And, they're open from 6 am for you early risers.

Parking is no issue. With five-minute parking out the front and a carpark out the back, it's so easy to grab a quick brekkie snack and a coffee in your travels. Here’s a tip, between the hours of 6-8 am, bacon and egg rolls are only $5.

What else is on the menu? Rubber Duckies has a focus on fast, healthy options with a range of Italian-American sandwiches, wraps, rice paper rolls, and vegetarian salads. Make a meal with a side of fries and a can of drink. A few smoothies, shakes and a lassi round off the drinks menu.Rubber Duckies

Rubber Duckies closes at 4 pm so there’s time for an afternoon bite or a caffeine break after school pick-ups.

Why Rubber Duckies?

“There used to be a truck stop at Mt Colah called The Rubber Duckies, it won the best burger in Sydney for a few years in a row. My dad’s best mate owned it for about fifteen years and it only closed around two years ago. There were some great stories that came out of that place and now I have delivery drivers coming in asking “This isn’t THE Rubber Duckies is it?” It’s a great name that sticks in the mind, you can’t forget the Rubber Ducky.”

Watch this space for some BYO evenings in the laneway.
