Back in Newcastle and as great a ever.
I agree with the last two reviewers. If you make a claim to be the best, you'd better be pretty damn sure you can back it up.
My long black did not measure up, despite this presumably being their regular barista (weekday morning). The beans they used seemed to be okay, but the grind and/or... Read more
Am confused, has a sign out the front saying "Voted Best Coffee in Newcastle" but when I went in the girl couldn't burn my short black fast enough. Good location right at the gym and the outdoor setting is nice. Will try again when a barista is on, steer clear otherwise.
Situated in a fitness gym but separate entrance or through gum entry. Beautifully restored building. Good coffee worth a try.
Large modern building with the expresso bar hiding at the end. Mostly filled with people from the gym. Great coffee but definitely not the vibe I usually go for.
Dull service, coffee lacking depth, although it had good presentation.
I have been trying to make it to this place for a while now, I showed up once a little to late but had a good chat to the owner and he sounded like he knew his stuff.
Unfortunately this Saturday morning he wasn't on and the girl behind the counter seemed like she didn't want to be there.
Great full flavoured espresso with quite a lot of food options for a small'ish cafe, barista's know what they are doing with every coffee with latte art.
nice seletion of smoothies too and awesome yoghurt (so creamy).
very comfy seating area with a great outdoors deck area which will... Read more
1 Latte, 1 Piccolo
Have had bad experiences with gym cafe's before but this one's ok. First time I went for s coffee it was after an early morning workout and the person working was overwhelmed by early morning gym going caffeine additcts. Second time actually got to taste the coffee and was pleasantly surprised.... Read more
Delicious coffee! Perfect spot for a "quickie" before hitting the gym. Love the sun-drenched deck area!
I had heard this was a good spot for a coffee, it even has a banner saying "Voted the best in Newcastle" The girl who served me was very welcoming and friendly, she seems to have a very nice personality. The coffee's was good, but I found them to be a little on the bitter side.

Not really keen on the coffee - piccolo was bitter and flat white was too milky. Probably won't go back, nice cafe though.
Well this mornings 'blend' was Brazillian which I love. Stunning crema with an aroma to boot. The food looked lovely and fresh but I was so tempted by the heart shaped shortbread I forgot the salad and went for the sugar. Hey I did a huge workout...I deserve a break!

came across this cafe when i went in and enquired about signing up to balance gym, its part of the same building but in its of area, had my usual flat white which had excellent patterns on top, tasted fantastic, had to have another. definitely high up in my top 5.

Come here if you are a serious coffee drinker. If you like your coffee like a milkshake this is not the place for you. consistent quality, friendly service.
I come here quite abit and meet with girlfriends after a workout.
The coffee is lovely and always looks appealing, although it usually takes a fair while before its served.
Food is nice but is a bit overpriced as are the babycinos, and if you want to get a take away... Read more

Nice coffee! Would go back :)
Disappointed that my fav Belgium Hot Choc is out of stock. Ordered a mocha and it was suprisingly good. Enjoyed my veg turkish as well.
If you like the coffee at Rolador you'll love Stella. It's located inside a gym called Balance City on Hunter St Newcastle. I had double hit flat white, it was delivered promptly with coffee art on top. The flavour was roasty strong but smooth, milk was textured beautifully. One was not enough so I... Read more

This cafe sits inside a inner city gym. It was a great coffee experience, tasted great with coffee art. I only had time for one strong flat white but I will be back for more coffee and to try the food it looked fresh and appealing.

Very impressed! Very nice staff, home made scones, and absolutely gorgeous coffee! I love when you can tell how much passion a person has about their coffee, and the managers there today defiantly had it! They defiantly take pride in their work! Defiantly worth a try! I love the atmosphere too,... Read more
This place has great atmosphere. The grey headed blokes seem to knows what's going on friendly banter and a good joke friendly smiles. The girl serving me was welcoming and friendly. Go back again
Stella coffee is fantastic. Team with a chicken turkish for a great lunch. Took home a tub of fruit and nut mix yesterday. Very nice after a big workout.
