    Just a really great flw, perfect temperature, robustly strong without being overly bitter

    Nice rich coffee, but not too bitter and friendly service. They certainly seem to know their stuff.

    I usually prefer my mochas made with melted chocolate - the mocha here is made with a raw cacao blend.... I have to admit it was absolutely beautiful!! I enjoyed the even balance of coffee and chocolate flavours with a luxurious creamy texture. Will definitely be back!

    Have been a regular here for about 6 months and the coffee is always superb. Friendly staff & know their coffee well.. Food is a little in the expensive side but about the same as surrounding cafes. Food quality is excellent. French barista is very pedantic about coffee making & it shows. Excellent... Read more

    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!😃

    Had a spare 30 minutes to pop out of the city on my trip down South to Sydney and a local mate of mine broughte to this gold mine of a cafe.... The quality of coffee produced is nek level! Was depressed however that they had turned the Slayer off early in the day, but that was a minute thing... Read more

    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

    Have had a couple of coffees here and I've 'bean thinking' this place is for the coffee drinker who likes a pungent, acidic, punchy after taste type of espresso. I wouldn't go here by choice as it's not a coffee I enjoy and prefer some of the other quality cafes in the area. However credit for... Read more
