    Dropped in for a networking lunch today - all you need - awesome service, a great brew to savour at the right temperature and stunning food. Will always impress.

    Coffee here is notoriously off temp, and on the cold side. I've seen warm milk topped up with cold milk to make next cup - no no. Machine needs to be kept cleaner as you can see evidence of build-up on steam wand. Couldn't give a rats about the food, once was enough. Coffee seriously needs to be better.

    Saturday Breakfast - you would expect it to be busy, and it was, but my food was perfect, service was attentive and the coffee was just the right temp and texture - beautiful.

    Only espresso available here, but still a nice coffee. Long black was good. Service good too even though was quite busy.

    Heard they had changed coffee to Single Origin so I thought I'd give it a try.
    It wasn't too bad, pretty straight in flavour, not much to it.. a little bit towards the bitter side.

    One of my favourite places in Newcastle for breakfast, coffee is pretty good when they get it right. New 'ye-ha' blend from SO roasters was beautiful the other day, however today's was way to strong. Wish their coffee was consistently good

    This place is my regular. I have coffee and food here at least 5 times a week. The service is the best in Newcastle without doubt. I don't know how they do it but the staff here actually give a shit and do a great job. Food is always good and fast to come out. Coffee is very good without being... Read more

    Given how busy this place was at the time, their coffee, service and food were excellent. Efficient and friendly staff. No complaints!

    Flavour was not bad, perhaps slightly on the too weak side. Temperature was good. Food prices were excessive however did not appear to be a detergent given popularity.

    Great cafe, they have done ok with the space they are in, but coffee came ridiculously fast for how busy they were with great service and tasted very good.

    Great service, attentive staff. Always remember you even if it has been a while between visits. Peaberry's coffee is ok but they do a good job with it. Coffee quality varies a bit with business and barista.

    One of only a handful of places I would recommend for breakfast in Newcastle, Three Bean has earned a reputation as a Novocastrian Institution, if not an Icon. It is my first choice whenever I’m in town. While the staff have changed over the years, you can bank on being served by personable,... Read more

    First time here and certainly won't be the last. My coffee was great. The service was good and quick. The cardamom cake was delicious.
    The breakfast menu looked interesting not the same old same old. Can't wait to go back and try it!

    Coffee is to weak to shine through the milk in a cap. Staff must have thought I was made of glass since they served the two people that came in after me first, even though I made eye contact with them.

    The coffee was great first time around. Took my husband there for breakfast and it's was disappointing. The coffee was too hot and the milk not textured. not to mention the breakfast was so so. Very disappointing since I have heard so much of this place.

    Quality of the organic ingredients and well prepared meals with friendly staff add up to a great breakfast experience. However, it's a shame they use a Peaberry's blend which is weak and over-rated :( Sadly, I go for the breakfast and then catch a coffee down the street.
