2 Birds Espresso Bar is a heartfelt local cafe
WHY I LOVE THIS PLACE
Geraldine Hakewill, actress from Lilyfield
2 Birds Espresso Bar, Lilyfield
“I chose it because I lived just down the road for many years and I worked there for a year and a half and it’s the heart of that little community in Lilyfield. It’s such a great spot.
“One of the girls who works there, Ruby, is an artist. It’s covered in art on the walls and on the cups.
“Tables are made out of milk crates and there are some tables outside. It’s quite small, there are toys for the kids to play with. We have a big map on the wall covered with foreign coins we get from people who have visited somewhere.
“It feels like you’re maybe in a little Swedish sauna. It feels like something out of Frankie magazine. It has a kitschy vibe. It’s tucked in between a corner shop and a hairdresser. It’s such a central part of the community for that area.”
“They do a double shot as standard, so it does strong coffee. They do a really great bacon and egg roll. There are lots of pastries that come in from local bakeries, really good GF options, cookies, lots of different toasted sandwiches and I think they have salads now – just easy stuff you can take away or eat quite quickly. Lots of professionals come for lunch and get a toasted sandwich. It’s easy and delicious.”
“I love cooking. My boyfriend and I are big foodies. We eat really healthily, we just love fresh ingredients, we love cheese and beautiful bunches of organic herbs. I love being inspired by what’s in season and what’s round. And lots of colourful fresh vegies.
“I’ve just done a play at the Darlinghurst Theatre Company called The Pride. A TV show I’m starring in called Wanted is on Channel Seven at the moment and I’m filming the second series of Soulmates for ABC.
“I have a lot of things in the pipeline. I’m about to go to the US; that’ll be an adventure, and then hopefully Wanted goes again for season two.”
