Move over Gloria Jeans, there's a new kid in town.
A delicious array of treats at Hudson's Coffee
Hudson's Coffee has taken over the booth at Sydney Domestic Airport Terminal 3 arrivals level that was previously owned by Gloria Jeans. For travellers, this is good news, as it means better coffee, and quite frankly, nicer staff too.
Warming Cappuccino wakes up travellers
Hudson's Coffee offer two different coffee blends for the coffee connoisseurs. Their standard, Premium Blend, and their darker roast, the Barista Choice. Both are enjoyable, and are a step up from Gloria Jeans' stock-standard roasts.
Hudson's Coffee at Sydney Domestic Terminal 3
They provide your basic options for snacks and food such as doughnuts, lamingtons, and muffins; but they also have healthier choices such as sandwiches and muesli, which services a wider audience.
Hudson's Rewards program let's you earn credits - sign up for free
When I ordered my first coffee, they offered their rewards club to me, which is a free program where you can earn 10c for every $1 spent, as well as giving you the chance to receive special offers and promotions. You get a substantial plastic card given to you on the spot, and there's no requirement to activate it online which is convenient.
Small menus take time to read, but the staff are happy to help answer your questions.
The only complaint I have is that their menus have such tiny font, that even as a twenty-something year old, I had issues reading them. But I'm going to put this down to the cafe being only a few weeks old, and I'm hoping they're set to get a better menu display.
The service is fast and efficient, and the staff friendly. Hudson's Coffee makes early airport travel just that more manageable.
