About The Steam Engine

The Steam Engine is a specialty espresso bar and cafe. The atmosphere in the shop is fun and boisterous; you can expect to be offered one of our many favourite single-origin coffees, or at least a joke or pun.

Our food offerings are simple but tasty. Toasties, pastries, or an assortment of seasonal treats.

We also encourage our regulars to be conscious of the environment. Bring a reusable cup and we'll reward you for it, or grab a box of our coffee grounds for use in your garden as compost.
