Been a while since I last visited. Still good, still fast, still friendly. Coffee was better than I remembered, but I think it was just better textured milk. I'm glad Canberra has a place that is so reliable.
Nice friendly service, good coffee (a double shot is recommended) and great freepouring art. Good find, thanks Beanhunter!
Grabbed a shorty here the other day when I was passing. This place gets raved about, so consequentially, I had to check it.
The coffee wasn't awesome. That's a given. They weren't busy, it was after 3pm on a saturday so the rush had passed, so I was expecting that they were all over... Read more
Coffee was average at best, and the service was mixed. One waitress was fantastic, the other two were appalling. Atmosphere is good though so I guess that's something, right? Right guys?
1 Espresso, 1 Cappuccino
Always a great vibe and the place to be on sun/sat morning so get in early or be prepared to wait. Coffee is great and food is too.. But a bit exy.
Good coffee but horrible service. Takeaway only for me
Ordered my large, strong café latte first and received it last - after people who arrived and ordered 5min later. Coffee that was delivered was wrong and had to be made again, incurring an extra 5min wait. Latte that was finally delivered was good, but couldn't erase the bitter taste from the poor... Read more
Update - dropped down a notch.
Over the past few months I have been consistently underwhelmed by my once favourite haunt. I'm not saying the coffee is bad - its not! It's just not as good as it used to be. The coffee is not as rich as I remember.
I still go here for... Read more
It may not be the best coffee I've ever had, but there's a consistency and drinkability that makes it work. Inoffensive and done right it would benefit from better beans and a little less rush.
KG does deliver, and seems to keep up the effort day to day.
At last a Cafe in... Read more
Couldn't fault anything. Good coffee and lovely eggs Benedict. Nice location in morning sun.
Seriously good. Lots of food and other stuff going on. But the coffee is 1st class.
This is a nice cafe to stop by if you are in the area. Good sunlight which is pretty rare for Canberra cafe's. The coffee is quite nice without being amazing. The service is ok but again not stellar. Good atmosphere with always plenty going on and plenty of people about.
Had a takeaway Flat White. Good temp, good milk and a lovely rich coffee shot. Not hugely complex, but still very good. Can't wait to try one in-house, out of a real cup.
One of my favourites in Canberra. Worth the drive out to Kingston. A great vibe inside, service was excellent, coffee was great. Milk wasn't burnt, but not cool, coffee was extracted well and tasted smooth and full. A great experience, would definitely recommend it. Very well priced too!
Went there because of it's good reputation. When the coffee finally arrive it was good. My FW was quite nice. The consistency of the milk was good and there was a very pleasant nutty bitterness. However it did leave quite a gritty feeling in the mouth.
The food is very simple but arrived... Read more
Stopped past for a coffee and some breakfast the other day. The setting in the bustling and hip green square in Kingston is nice, and if you can manage to snag a table inside on a cool Canberra morning you are doing well.
Service was lack luster after a very lengthy wait this... Read more
Great coffee and reliable food. The service is ok but it can take a while till you are served.
Always consistent coffee, service ok only due to it being busy.
THE best coffee, without a doubt, north of Melbourne!!!! And better than much of it there too. I love Kingston Grind!
This was my morning coffee stop before work for quite some time in 2008/09 and even though it's out of my way now, I still return quite often. The product and service is consistently top notch, run by people who obviously take a lot of pride in their business.
Kingston Grind was the... Read more
Excellent coffee - very consistent. Good food. Great atmosphere. Friendly staff.
2 Flat Whites, 1 Piccolo
Friend recommended it to me and had high expectations. While wasn't totally disappointed it was not as great as i thought it would be (my cap tasted thin). Serve was friendly and efficient. If I am in the area will go back again but won't go out of my way to revisit.
One of the best and most consistent cups in ACT in my opinion... Big improvement on years gone by...
Bit of a wait for my takeaway, however it was merited because thy were flat stick busy and as a Barista I know the extra care they were taking every cup to ensure consistency and... Read more
Still serving exceptionally great piccolo even during peak hour. Good place to chill out with mates. The sexy waitress put the order wrong but change it quickly, friendly service.
Nah... you probably come at the wrong time and the wrong person served you haha. I made a complaint, the other barista came to me and explaining the milk should be 60 degree. Fair enough, he made another cup of coffee, it was definitely nicer... he told me that the big guy behind the espresso... Read more
