What is Best Cafe Designs?

Best Cafe Designs is a directory of cafes and cafe professionals (designers, photographers and builders).  It is a fully functional review site connecting cafes with their followers.


It seeks to be your global guide to extraordinary cafes, curated for the design community: architects, designers, and avid travellers.


The founder, Andrew started the idea of Best Cafe Designs by photographing cafes during coffee breaks, working as an architect in Sydney CBD.  The initiative then expanded to a 30+ international collaboration of architects, designers, photographers and writers featuring cafe designs from all over the world.  In the process, Andrew created a free photography guide ebook to take better smartphone photography.
