The First Drop

About Us

Establishing itself as an icon in Redfern’s café scene since 2007, The First Drop Café prides itself on the simple things in life. 


Co- Owners and brother in laws, Michael and Christopher alongside a great team of kitchen staff and floor staff; are all about good coffee, great food and excellent service. 


Together with their passion for honest good food, First Drop has been a meeting place for family and friends as well as a second kitchen for many locals; not only to share memories over a meal but to create lasting memories.

Sit Back & Relax

Located in a renovated leafy corner shop in Redfern, with its original unique style and no fuss service, The First Drop has become a favourite with locals and visitors from in and around Sydney. 

More than Coffee

From serving classic all day breakfast to mouth watering burgers and even house baked cakes; First Drop strives for perfection and consistency in all aspects of cafe life to create a home away from home feeling.
