Josie at Zokoko's does the most incredible coffee art!! And that just tops off the superb coffee that Morgans roast! Team that with their delightful Lemon Polenta cakes (they sound so healthy - don't they?), or a delicately crafted chocolate, and you're in for the treat of a lifetime! Thank you!

I've worked in Sydney for a long time and have sampled every coffee cart from Central to the Quay. Zokoko still does the best cup of coffee in Sydney. The industrial area may not be "fancy" but the interior is nice and at the end of the day it's all about the brew - which is CONSISENTLY fabulous. Love your work.

This cafe has great coffee, tea and hot chocolate drinks for take away or to have in house. Tastefully decorated the cafe is a breath of fresh air for the somewhat suburban cafe scene in the area. High quality ingredients used by skilled staff make this a worthwhile place to visit. The food is designed to complement coffee so don't expect a full meal menu but do enjoy hand made chocolates and daily cake specials..

A great place to spend an hour or so with a friend or a book drinking coffee and eating chocolate and cake. Its not a restaurant its a café so don't expect 3 course meals. Its all about the coffee, chocolate and cakes, slices etc. You can actually watch the chocolate being ground when in production via this artisan machine. It is a very busy café but the service is great. They make all their cakes and truffles etc and everything is beautifully presented. The owners are very particular about their product and where the beans come from etc. They go overseas and inspect the plantation before they buy. They don't mix the beans with any other plantations so each batch is made from the one single origin. You can really tell the difference from chocolate and coffee that is blended and then these ones from Zokoko. I usually buy coffee beans to take home while I'm there and they are normally only roasted a couple of days before so it is so so fresh. Love their coffee and chocolate. Anyone who tries will go back for sure.

Great coffee, great chocolate. A bit pricey but fast service and convenient. Its always packed but people move through there quickly. There's a funky chocolate stirrer that you can watch, they take their chocolate very seriously
