One of my new favourite local coffee shops is Kingswood Coffee, conveniently around the corner from home.
Kingswood uses Sensory Lab for it's milk-based coffees, and more importantly has a range of guest baked pastries, including the famous Brewtown Newtown's cronuts.
The coffee here is smooth and consistent. Open at 6am on weekdays, it was a lifesaver on the day of the Oxfam Trailwalker event, as it meant I could get a decent caffeine fix before hopping on the train to the starting line.
I've spotted the Brewtown Newtown cronuts on almost every single visit, and Kingswood seem to stock a decent variety of them - jam, original glazed, chocolate, and cinnamon.
A fantastic little spot to grab your morning caffeine fix, and maybe sneak in a naughty treat (or two!)
