Replay Espresso

2A William Street, Turramurra NSW
(02) 9449 3494

It’s nice to see a hard working couple join forces with a vision for their future. Replay Espresso has been a long time in the making for Grant and Yvette Andronicus – yes, the famous coffee family that bought espresso culture and fresh roasted coffee to Australia. Grant and Yvette are an amazing couple, both born into hospitality, and they fully understand the dynamics of people and go out of their way to please.
Replay is quickly becoming an iconic name around the neighborhoods of Turramurra. Grant knows the area well, being his local playground and home suburb since he was a child. Replay serves Gabriel Coffee (Sam Gabrielian) including a single origin that changes every two to three weeks, and cold drip is also passionately served using the weekly single origin. Grant and Sam Gabrielian are good mates; Grant helped Sam in the initial start up of Dose Espresso, working his magic on the floor with his silver hospitality tongue.
The food is pretty cool and they have chosen some of Sydney’s best suppliers, such as St Malo, Luxe and Brasserie Bread bakeries for all sour doughs, brioche, schiacciata, and pastry and individual cakes.
Popular items on the menu are their Nutella Smoothie, Pulled Pork with Asian Slaw on Brioche, Crushed Avocado with Grilled Haloumi on Organic Sourdough with Roasted Tomato and Pesto.
Replay is already famous amongst the private school mums coming from the gym with healthy breakfast options such as Acai Berry Bowls with Fresh Banana and “Luke Avenue” Fig and Maple Granola and Organic Quinoa and Brown Rice cooked with Coconut Milk, Pepitas and Sunflower Seeds.
The only complaints I have read about Replay is that it’s too busy. That’s not a bad problem in a new business. If you want to visit, get there early and beat the brunch crowd. The café is located across from Turramurra Station in an old garage site, and it took a major reno to get the space that was needed to create the open vibe. The clever use of large bi fold windows helps let the light and air into creating a wonderful open barn feel.
This is another example of the great suburban café setups that are slowly springing up around the Sydney landscape.
Open: Weekdays 6am – 5.30pm and weekends 6am – 4pm.
