About Us

We’ve Loved Every Coffee We’ve Poured

20 Years of First Drop in Redfern and Beyond

When First Drop started in 2003, it was a cosy corner café on Baptist and Telopea Streets in Redfern. What began as Michael’s dream for a local cafe soon turned into a community haven; by keeping things simple and executing the basics at the highest level, First Drop became a staple to locals.
In 2007 Christopher Hing, Michael’s brother-in-law, officially joined and made it a family business. Christopher’s multicultural background of Greek and Chinese has influenced the menu with an appealing blend of flavours.


At First Drop, getting to know our customers on a first-name basis and building close friendships has been the heart of our success.

We’re not just a team, we’re a family. From the front of house to the back, our entire First Drop team embodies a sense of unity.

Our Marrickville menu proudly presents all the classic First Drop breakfast favorites, capturing the essence of our signature style. But that’s not all – we’re thrilled to introduce an exciting new range of bowls and deli-style sandwiches, staying true to our roots while adding a fresh twist. With a diverse array of dishes, there’s something for every palate, from delightful small plates to satisfying big plates.
