Wonderful soy coffee with a fresh roast :) Definity on par with the aussies.

However I had more than a quibble over the service.. The cashier microwaved my muffin for a minute, which most people with basic understanding of kitchen equipment would know that this hardens and essentially ruins the pastry. Would break the hearts of the hardworking chefs.

Otherwise - brilliant cafe with a relaxing ambience.

For: those in the neighbourhood, looking for a chill spot to get your caffeine fix!

Concurring with fellow reviewers - there seems to be a focus on aesthetic over taste. Also, definitely not wallet friendly!

Liquids: Lovely colossal espresso machine with well balanced espresso shot. Milk was not well frothed and (for the sake of the gram) the latte art was...absent. The cold brew was advertised at the counter and I couldn’t resist! It had a nice sweet aftertaste if you could get over the initial bitter bite - maybe the grounds were too old/ finely grounded? I would recommend perfecting your cold brew before advertisement, especially if you’re looking to compete with Yahava Kaffee next door (BAE). Wonder how old is their roast?

Food: I can’t say for the pasta & stew mains, but the brunch was underwhelming. The sweet brioche, sweet avocado, sweet spinach and sweet Greek yoghurt dressing produced a salmon -yoghurt cake dish. The French toast was lovely to look but dry and hard to bite, far from the crunchy gooey custard most of us expect.

Aesthetic: gorgeous.

Overall: Lovely brunch spot for a chill out which should tweak it’s recipes/ roasts! Would give it a miss if I didn’t live next door.

Would recommend it’s pastas from a previous trip but no photos, alas!

Is ‘foodie’ code for ‘fu...ssy’? Five chefs tell us.
