Supernumerary Coffee

Salisbury has long been overlooked as a go-to suburb for specialty coffee, but Supernumerary Coffee’s arrival in late 2019 marked a turning point for the area. Owned and operated by coffee lovers Simon Flanagan and Chin Wu, Supernumerary Coffee grew from minimalist nook to a cavernous cafe in 2024, upping the ante across the board. The front half of the venue houses Supernumerary’s cafe space, with a stainless-steel-topped coffee bar (equipped with a Slayer V3, a Slayer LP and several Mahlkönig E80 grinders) pouring a range of espresso blends and single origins. With a fully equipped kitchen, the cafe is now serving buttery scrambled eggs (with fried sourdough and crispy chilli oil), seasoned avocado on sourdough, and tomato toast with heirloom tomato, stracciatella, basil oil and smoked salt. The the rear of the space sits the production area for Super Roast, the team’s in-house roaster (owned and operated by Simon and Eric Huang) which produces a number of blends that can be purchased for home consumption at the retail shelf.
