Top must-try 5 Australian cafes in the U.S.

Here are five of the best:

Bluestone Lane (Boston, DC, Los Angeles, New Jersey, NYC, Philly, San Francisco)

Established as a lone cafe in New York in 2013, Bluestone Lane since then has expanded to a chain of Australian-inspired coffee places all over major U.S. cities. Beyond their signature flat whites, many Bluestone locations also offer an all-day menu featuring everything from pancakes to avocado toast to a classic Aussie-inspired vegetarian brekkie featuring eggs, halloumi, kale, tomatoes and more.  Their downloadable app allows customers to schedule their orders ahead of time and redeem loyalty offers and credits per order.

Two Hands (New York) 

With three New York City branches in Nolita, Tribeca and Noho, Two Hands has become a popular go-to for diners looking for a taste from down under. The cafe boasts a make-your-own breakfast option with tasty options of eggs, toast, mozzarella, smoked salmon, bacon, avocado, sweet potato, and more. Make sure also to grab a bite of the self-named Two Hands Beef Burger, made with cheese, fried egg, pickled cucumber, beet relish, and arugula on a brioche roll with a salad on the side. Browse their menu directly here.

Pollen (Los Angeles) 

Pollen is the latest U.S. project from Bonnie Shearston and Tom Sanceau, founders of HappyFat Group which owns many award-winning restaurants, bars and pubs in cities like Brisbane. Executive chef Alison Trent is an Australian native who serves up Aussie-inspired  all-house-made menu. The restaurant’s name “Pollen” comes from their homemade sweet honey, which you’ll find on the French toast and lemon and poppyseed pancakes.

Try out classic coffees including an Aussie trademark flat whites, bulletproof coffee, long blacks, and piccolos. See more of their offerings straight from their website.

Threefold Cafe (Florida) 

Hailing from Australia’s coffee capital, Melbourne, restauranteurs Teresa and Nick Sharp founded Threefold Cafe in 2012 to give Floridians a taste of Australian-style espresso drinks. On the menu, you’ll find exceptional brewed coffee, cold brew on tap, single-origin cold drip, and vanilla affogato. See more of their coffee options here.

The cafe also serves Australian-inspired dishes, such as the "phenomenal Funghi: sourdough bread topped with pick-of-the-day mushrooms, black or white truffle oil, goat cheese, parsley, and a squeeze of lemon. Their "Not So French Toast" is egg-soaked bread filled with prosciutto, basil, and ricotta, while their "East in the West" is a Turkish baked egg in a spiced tomato base with dukkah and sautéed spinach.

Threefold Cafe has three branches in Florida, one in Giralda Avenue in Coral Gables, one in South Miami, and one in Brickell Avenue, Miami.

The Coffee Movement (San Francisco) 

This minimalist yet elegant cafe in San Francisco’s Nob Hill neighborhood is hailed as one of the area’s hidden gems. The idea for The Coffee Movement came to founder Bryan Overstreet in 2014. As a Sydney native, he aimed to bring the "immersive culture" of coffee in Australia to the "transactional nature" of American cafes. And so far, his customers seem to agree. 

The cafe offers classic coffees like espressos, cappuccinos and lattes, but if you're looking for a little adventure, you can try their Tasting Flight coffee, which three pours of the day's featured coffees, or one coffee prepared in three different ways. They also serve seasonal drinks: Ginger Spice Latte, Masala Chai Latte, and Espresso Mule.

The Coffee Movement also extends beyond its Washington Street location: corporate and organizations can enjoy their event services: a mobile espresso bar and an office coffee program. Imagine quality coffee in the comfort of your office!
