While many cafes are content to serve up crowd-pleasing blends, Common Man Coffee Roasters prefers to share its wide array of blends and a rotation of single origin offerings to its customers, allowing each and everyone to open up their palates to different exciting possibilities. For Common Man, there isn’t “one great coffee profile” — instead, you are free to discover your preferences through their beans and brews, rest assured that everything is prepared expertly according to their standards.

While coffee purists will enjoy their classic coffee menu, those looking for sweeter profiles can discover their fan favourite Nitro Oat Honey Latte. And if you’re still not sure, the Common Man Crew is always willing to lend a hand in helping you choose.

Brunch Classics Made Uncommon

While the usual pairings for coffee are pastries and light bites, Common Man prefers uncommon pairings — with coffee at its core and an all-day brunch menu to satiate the palate.

Their brunch menu elevates international classics through their own award-winning Common Man recipes. Sourcing only high-quality ingredients locally and internationally, they put together abundant servings for a nourishing and delightful all-day experience in their cafes.

The brunch approach is thoughtfully crafted comfort fare – elevated and redefined, whilst keeping it common and familiar. Common Man carefully develops each dish with its own twist; an unlikely ingredient or a special sauce, to complete and complement every meal. The Common Man Full Breakfast is plentiful and savoury; with carefully cooked egg on top of artisanal sourdough, paired with generous servings of meats and greens.

For veggie fans, its counterpart is the Common Man Veggie Wonderland, which trades the bacon & sausages for some fresh avocado. Even their version of the eggs benedict is sumptuous, the brunch classic is reimagined with tender braised beef brisket for a heftier experience.

For dessert, indulge in the guiltless goodness of the flourless chocolate cake called Not Your Common Chocolate Cake. With its knack for some wholesome fun, the food is definitely there to delight and nourish. Whether guests are in search of a timeless brunch spot to satisfy their cravings during the day, or perhaps a quick mid-day break with friends to share sourdough pizzas over laughs and conversations, or even a night cap with a drinks menu of specially crafted booze and natural wines for the well-deserved happy hour (and the hours after), they are always in for a treat at Common Man.
