The Fair Trade Coffee Company opened in Glebe in late August, the first cafe in Sydney to sell and serve coffee and tea that is only fair trade, meaning Third World producers are actively paid fair prices.
The cafe also has an extensive eat-in menu with breakfast served until 3pm and a range of light meals and daily specials.

Saffron and I had only popped in to have a quick lunch, but time seems to slow down to a crawl as soon as you take a step in here: the homey wooden tables, the rattan blinds and the cheerful disposition of staff make you feel like you're on a remote relaxed holiday far far away from the city hustle and bustle.
Hot chocolate $3.50
Scrambled eggs on sourdough $5.50
The prices are all fairly reasonable and the service, although not militarily efficient, was enthusiastically warm and accompanied by genuine honest smiles.
Tamari scrambled tofu $7.20
served with seasonal vegetables, tahini and soy linseed sourdough
Garlic and parsley grilled mushrooms $2.50
Savoury spelt crepes with spinach and fetta $7.80
