    I finally had a coffee here worthy of the average rating! My previous experiences left me a little underwhelmed and unfulfilled' this time the coffee was bold, complex, and made to perfection!

    Volume of water used made espresso feel a bit thin however it definitely opened out the flavours so worth the compromise. Flavour held a light bit of lemon acidity, body was a little more confused but still very enjoyable. FW chaser was like the weather, a bit gloomy and bitter, the milk texture... Read more

    Unfortunate for me and for the bean drinkers preparatory staff that today the coffee is not so greatS . I enjoy the flavour but hotness is simply not a hot one. I have only two drink and it is cool to touch my lip. Reduction in mouthfeel and experience declines. :'(

    Amazing constant coffee. Full of flavour and body. Staff always happy to have a chat about the art of coffee. Try their coffee tasting plater.

    Strong effort with my Short Long Blacks and Double Ris. Barista was super friendly and knew exactly what he was doing! Will certainly be back next time I'm in the area.

    Coffee is really good but the food is average. The menu needs to be reviewed and updated with better food items

    I've visited several times over the last five years and experienced consistently high quality. It's my number one in Sydney for filter coffee, and Slayer espresso. Also try the cold brew.

    Nice setup. They've got all of the best equipment. My brother and I had their single from Kenya (can't recall the name) as an espresso. It wasn't so bad. It felt a little like it had separated though. The crema was so thick (brother mentioned something about mud), that it left the rest of the... Read more

    Back after 10 months to check out if the coffee is still good. Found out that all their FWs are made with a double shot ristretto- my preference these days. Service a little slow but the wait was worth it. Excellent aroma, flavour with some lingering bitterness. This is coffee!😃

    With the office pretty quiet it felt a bit like Christmas Eve so I took the opportunity to head to my favorite local. Had a seriously good FW and a stimulating chat on all things coffee with Keith, the owner. Came away with a whole lot more knowledge...and a delicious acidic 'zing' on the sides of... Read more

    Having recently moved to soy for health reasons I ordered a soy latte, while my partner had a regular latte. Both were well prepared, looked good and my soy latte tasted just like a regular latte - and it was excellent. Right temperature, right size and smooth.

    I like the longer hours though the Slayer was closed when I went in for a ristretto. Lots of seating options. Real coffee vibe. The boss was happy to talk shop too.

    I was a long time customer of this establishment, religiously I would go there for a coffee, some times twice a day. But with a large staff turnover the coffee is BAD, often with a bitter after taste. The barista there are great and always make you feel welcome, hence the high score for Service,... Read more
