Went again with a friend. Not as impressive this time but still very good. A tad weaker taste than I would've liked in my piccolo. Consistent? maybe not as good as it could be. Still, remains on my favorites.
The worst coffee I have had in a while. Poured half of it down the drain it was that bad. Couldn't pinpoint exactly what it was that made it taste horrible. Given all the excellent reviews below, I am given to think it may have just been a one off and will give the Marionette another go.
Back again and still great
Very good. Very very good. Very impressed with my piccolo. Almost as good as Coffee Alchemy. Almost...
Very nice establishment. Such an old style cafe but it has so much personality. The coffee was really nice. Had a somewhat woody texture! If I had more time I would sit on their leather couches and read books all afternoon. Really pleasant experience. Ill be back!
It's all about the coffee! Fantastic to the point of one coffee too many for this caffeine lover.
Stopped by for a quick t/a flat white. Good coffee not exceptional; good crema, temperature and nice flavour, although would have liked just a little more of a punch. Great vibe here and friendly staff.
Ethiopian Djhimma piccolo at the hipster baristas recommendation. Absolutely one of the best coffees this year.
Cup of excellence! That is all!
Try the cold drip ! Then wash it down with a short black. You might find you need another cold drip, just cause its so good !
It's very difficult to find fault with this one.
The coffee is absolutely superb. Beautiful glossy ristretto had me dipping my finger into the finished cup and Ill-mannerdly licking the complex flavours off my finger.
The roasting was in full swing pumping heady,... Read more
First time visit to The Little Marionette, sadly my espresso was thin and very bitter, my mate ordered a double ristretto and he was pretty impressed.
Second coffee was better, although flat white had lots of foam on top.
Service was pretty good, and the atmosphere is... Read more
1 Espresso, 1 Flat White
Second visit, great Colombian espresso served in a neat marble cup. Really syrupy and balanced with a long finish. Pic was also very tasty. Friendly staff and one of my favorite fit outs in Sydney, love the false wall bookcase, very hip.
Have been coming to this "home away from home" to hang out for many years! Won my affections at first sight and sip. They roast their own beans on premises and you will often find their distinct blend served in other cafes. Seasonal variation to taste at times with a certain level of acidity. But... Read more
Best in the area... by far.
Very small and unassuming cafe. Had a double macc; it was deep rich and incredible.
Second time here. Super consistent coffee, super friendly staff! A new favorite!
I've never had a bad coffee from this place. I live the ambiance, especially the "secret room". Sometimes tough on the weekend to get a seat, so maybe I should be writing a bad review ;) Seriously though, it's on our top 3 list of weekend coffee destinations. Friendly staff behind the counter helps too.
Lovely little café and roaster. Very cute space, lovely staff and wonderful coffee. Good food as well. Absolutely one of the best cafés in Sydney.
Been coming here for quite a while. Always, always a good piccolo no matter who is behind the machine. One of the best in Sydney.
Delicious cold drip! Superb service and cool guys. Love this place.
I'm a regular visitor here after originally trying coffee at the Balmain cafe. The place is usually buzzing with an eclectic mix of local folks.
Always receive a consistently strong and flavoursome brew here no matter the barista, I'm a flat white fan but also enjoy the piccolo... Read more
Another best Mocha ever !! great aroma great test perfect combination choco & espresso short funky decor cafe delicious brownie. Love it will go back again.
Coffee was beautiful! Barista's friendly. pretty quick service (it was a Saturday morning). funky decor, a little cramped. Going back for sure. Highly recommended.
Wow!!! 3rd visit and just as impressed. surfer 'dude' behind the machine made the most impressive espresso. followed by a flurry of perfect different origins. wish i didnt live so far away!
