Laneway Specialty Coffee

As the coffee scene gains momentum in the Top End, Laneway Specialty Coffee is noted as a local favourite for both its food and coffee. Located on a corner in the inner suburb of Parap, also home to the vibrant local Parap Saturday markets, on our visit the place was bustling inside and out with a chilled and rustic atmosphere.

The café is decorated with hanging plants, beautiful wooden tables and moody ambient lighting inside while outside the alfresco diners enjoy cute settings in the sunshine in manageable temperatures.

Local born owners Adam, Danny and Lisa made it their priority when launching the café back in 2014 to focus on serving exceptional coffee with restaurant quality food. Inspired by Melbourne and Sydney cafes, Laneway is definitely a trend setter for the Darwin café experience.  Having such success, joint owners have also recently launched their sister café Besser Kitchen & Brew Bar in a nearby suburb Winnellie.

Not only providing impeccable options in food and beverages their point of difference in providing table service with their friendly staff attending to both sit down diners and take away requests, which adds value to the Darwin café experience.

The all day breakfast menu and lunch options pump from the open style kitchen that then wraps around into the barista area where the sleek black La Marzocco sits.  Currently serving Campos Superior Blend and a Kenyan single origin, I opted for the Kenyan as a piccolo whilst by counterpart went for the decadent iced coffee made from the Campos blend.

We then had the hard decision of selecting from an array of favourites and must try options on the menu. Our lunch consisted of Lemon Pepper Calamari and an Alantic Salmon Panini, and it was tempting to continue on with one of their sweet treat showcased so beautifully in the deli cabinet.

I visited twice in my week’s stay enjoying the Smashed Avocado which was a vegetarian delight, a simple option but fresh and tasty.

It was my first time visiting Darwin and of course Laneway, but it definitely will not be the last.
