    If not coffee, you must try the special italian hot chocolate and home made amaretto almond biscotti! Divine...!!!

    Don't forget to read the quote of day chalk board.

    Boys, don't let it slip... Coffee has been really inconsistent of late. Just had your worst so far.

    Visited a couple of times, once when I saw a bunch of people outside and thought wow it must be good, and the other when everything else was closed and I thought perhaps the first experience was a dud. Both times I was really disappointed, just not good enough, tasted much the same as any average... Read more

    Popped in 'cause I was in da hood and had reaad good thngs about the place. Strong roasting/brewing smell on a Sat morning. I like it when a coffee shop actually smells of coffee. Ordered a takeaway Flat White. Strong, very Italian, dark roast. Good milk. Will try it again, sit in next time.

    1 Flat White

    I discovered Bean Tampered about 6-7 months ago whilst walking to Envy for coffee. The aroma of the roasting coffee beans dragged me through the door and I've never left. I have tried every blend of coffee that they have to offer and they have all been fantastic. The hardest to get is Mafioso,... Read more

    I'd heard a lot about this place and was surprised when I casually strolled past. Cafe looks very tired and dated but this manages to add to the vibe. The coffee was good, not great as I'd hoped. The muffin was delicious!!!!!

    Dirty place with no atmosphere at all, needs a coat of paint and a good clean! Latte was perfectly textured but tasted like it was a mocha?

    Doing the rounds of all cafe's in the area. After reading reviews and ratings my wife and I were keen to try this coffee. I must say very disappointed. Steady stream of patrons but it was rather a dirty cafe. Please use a cloth and broom. My wife ordered a latte And i ordered a soy cap. Maybe... Read more

    Honestly without a doubt this would have to be the best coffee I have tasted. Great Italian roast .. Roasted on the premises what more could I ask for? Great coffee guys keep it up :-)

    We are locals - best coffee in Summer Hill. Don't go for the decor - go for the coffee! Service is fine, atmosphere is fine (except when they're roasting on a hot day). If your coffee is not up to scratch, ask for another on the day - help them perfect it. Cheers Lino!

    After been told about this cafe by friends and beanhunter, i was eager to try it out. On my break today i made a quick dash to Summerhill from Ashfield for the long awaited cafe taste. I was not disappointed, the coffee was very nice, smooth and not bitter. (Campos, the game has changed). I... Read more

    The staff at Bean Tampered make you feel welcome as soon as you walk in the door. Their coffee is smooth and very drinkable, served at just the right temperature. The flavour profile lacked a little kick and the milk could have been textured better. It is obvious however, that there is a great... Read more

    I can validate the previous reviewer's comment saying that this is the best coffee in the inner-west, if not, in the whole of Sydney. I have tried every location in the inner-west as well as other further out; Concord, North Strathfield, Haberfield, Burwood, Newtown, Balmain, North Sydney,... Read more

    Excellent espresso and sweets (love the almond horseshoes and the freshly made muffins). Beans are roasted on-site. Quintessentially inner-west; nothing glam in sight. I often buy beans here - the mafioso blend in particular is just the way I like it - big and bold!

    Best in the inner west. Boutique coffee roaster and pasticceria. Fast friendly service. Light snacks and sweets. Easily best in Summer Hill. Opening hours great right thru the week. Bohemian in everyday with roaster up the back of shop. Purrrfetto!
