This Special Salisbury Cafe Satisfies Your Thirst For Top-Notch Coffee

When a store is named Supernumerary Coffee you can expect to be completely impressed by its top-notch standards. Well, this recently-opened Salisbury cafe along Toohey Road is certainly aiming to live up to its name.

To be supernumerary is to exceed and this Salisbury cafe seems to have that part all worked out. Equipped with a top-notch, high-end espresso machine from Seattle’s Slayer Espresso, Supernumerary Coffee serves specialty brews that even the most discerning coffee-lovers will likely endorse.

This Salisbury cafe also uses only the best beans from Padre, one of Melbourne’s finest blended coffee suppliers. Non-coffee drinks are sourced from premier Chinese tea supplier Kuura

The food selection at Supernumerary Coffee, however, is simple and straightforward — avo toast, Wholly crumpets, banana bread, fruit loaf, and some vegan treats. The menu is not excessive for one good reason: they go perfectly well with its delicious coffee, its top-drawer and foremost product.

Owners Simon Flanagan and Chin Wu are passionate coffee lovers. In planning out their cafe, the partners wanted their coffee and coffee counter as the centrepiece. Thus, the restaurant’s minimalist interiors also work well with their concept.

As an added delight, Supernumerary Coffee is a dog-friendly establishment. On the menu are lactose-free puppacinos and cookies for four-legged visitors.  

From time to time, this Salisbury cafe also has select coffee-related merchandise for sale.

“Supernumerary is my happy place. They offer a unique selection of tea, smooth, rich coffee and locally sourced food (my favourite is the crumpets served with fresh honeycomb!). It’s a cute little spot, and the owners are exceptionally kind. The cafe is a brilliant addition to the local community.”
