There are several options if you are looking for a good cafe in the Fairfield area. My two main recommendations for the best breakfast and lunch menus are Slinky's Espresso and Anesis. Slinky's has been open for 3 years now and we have always had great meals every time. My colleagues and I will always drop in for their Caramel Frappes (with coffee). Its located at 3/190 Fairfield Rd, Fairfield (beside Fairfield Gardens). Anesis is well renowned in the local area as a great cafe. Its got a large outdoor seating area, and always produces massive portions of good food. It can be found at 82 Hyde Rd, Yeronga.
So far I have not found a better coffee shop than these two in the local area around Fairfield.
