    This place has adhered all the key ingredients together to stand out amongst the specialty coffee cafes of Newcastle. My piccolo - perfect in temperature & pour, had a beautiful crema that left me wanting for more. I'd be a regular if I could!

    Nice place in Newy. Had a flat white and also a single origin pour over coffee. Enjoyed it. Well done guys!!

    Really, really excellent joint. These cats know how to do their job. From my pour-over through to the generic latte, really can't fault them. Excellent work dudes!

    Great atmosphere & food but 'aloof' (almost rude) service and to be honest the coffee was ok but not great- looked a bit slap happy and had a bitter finish.

    Love this delightful place. The labna and rose hip jam on toast always wins! Favourite place for breakfast in newcastle!

    Best coffee I've ever had. Service was a bit to be desired. But great medium roasted beans!

    Delicious yet again... hadn't had it in a while so I thought I'd have one on my break and it was a good decision.

    Great coffee. Efficient service. Serves black coffee on ice cold drip and has a single origin special. Will be back for sure.

    Five hours I drove for this coffee and I was not disappointed. Was a pleasure to see some friendly faces.

    Espresso was quick despite the apparent crowd and my cappuccino was right on the mark.

    Fantastic coffee every time. Loving the Black Star beans. My second favourite place for coffee in Newcastle.

    I'd liked the look of this place, after walking past a few times, so stopped in for an early brekky today. My long black was expertly made, but I noticed a lack of complexity in the flavour. As I was paying, the barista (to his credit) asked how the coffee was, and it turned out he had given me a... Read more

    Seriously great cafe. They do everything right. The atmosphere at the new location is great, the food is fantastic and very different from your standard big breaks and eggs benny plus the coffee is spot on. Highly recommended.

    Awesome little Espresso Bar doing Toby's Estate. Piccolo was amazing (although served in a tiny take away cup!) and the vibe is very relaxed and cool.

    Went on a sunday. The blackstar blend has a consistent smooth flavor all the way to the end. Milk was done perfect. Overall coffee, service and atmosphere it's the benchmark in newcastle.

    Tried this cafe again...with much the same result. The service from both the person taking our orders and the barista was not especially welcoming. Our toasties were quite tasty and arrived quickly, but the coffees took awhile to arrive and were almost cold when they finally made it to the table.

    A consistently great cuppa joe. Serious attention to detail and a solid grind that means every pour is sweet, well extracted and full bodied. Food is simple, fresh and delicious. Keep up the good work team! I do love stopping by here.
