Why aren’t there more places like The Falconer in Sydney. Now, we know it’s pretty new, but somehow it still has a sense of authenticity. The austere booths, the beautiful timber counter. It’s the perfect setting for a Godfather-like assassination. Most importantly, the Falconer has great coffee, honest food and all the drinks you can imagine drinking, and none that you can’t. In other words, don’t ask for a fruit tingle.
