The Verdict

Morena Espresso is so much more than just a coffee shop–although they do brew an excellent cuppa. The space, which is bright and airy with white washed walls, concrete floors, exposed beams and loads of natural light, is a booming creative hub. 

Here you can take salsa classes, have band practice, attend a song writing workshop or learn Spanish. You can also check out—and purchase—everything from hats and bags to custom skateboards and vegan skin care, thanks to their ever-changing local marketplace in store, where they champion the work of talented locals. 

There’s also cosy nooks and chillout areas as well as a long communal table, perfect for sipping your morning cuppa at. In the far corner is a cinder block bar serving up shakes, cold pressed juices, toasties, acai bowls and brewing Marvell Street Coffee from Byron Bay. 

And with plans in the future for more events and expansions we highly recommend you check out this sweet spot today.
