Flood Street Carousel

Located one block east of Johns Hopkins, Flood Street is a coffe house and independent bookstore. It has a well-stocked occult book section which, in combination with the excellent coffee, has enabled it to become a regular hangout for the minor members of Sydney’s supernatural community. Another reason it’s attractive to supernaturally aware people is the sign located immediately below the “Fueled By Zeke’s Coffee” poster: “Accorded Neutral Ground.” Much like MacAnally’s Pub in Melbourne, the internal architecture is irregular, the tables spaced oddly, and the bookshelves are all askew of one another.

Flood Street does not offer WiFi, free or otherwise. Wireless Internet does not mix well with wizards, and even cell phone reception seems to take this in stride (a third sign on the far wall exhorts patrons to “UNPLUG.”). Many patrons indicate that this is a big reason that they frequent this coffee house over others.

Owned and run by Diane Basset.
