Great coffee, very happy with my latte. I would love to see you go with a local roast rather than merlo, it would give you the edge. Get to Wilburs when you are in melbourne next.
Great little cafe. Basic, cool atmosphere. Nice staff.
The coffee though - not amazing. The problem is the beans. A slightly uninteresting Merlo blend? The foam was good.
The free wifi, the chilled vibe, the no-minimum eftpos. All great things, the coffee itself just... Read more
Townsville is really getting a cosmopolitan pulse and places like The Sweatshop are adding to this. With a decor that could fit in any cafe enclave around the country The Sweatshop has really added a cafe destination to Townsville.
Friendly baristas and walls of local art create a... Read more
The best coffee I have had in Townsville thus far. The place has a really cool decor and is housed in an amazing old building on Flinders St.
The service was excellent, order was taken quickly and coffee brought to me when I didn't hear my name being called.

I've been trying to find a decent coffee since I left Melbourne.. This is by far the best coffee in Townsville.. The toasties are yum too!
Had a coffee here couple of months ago and was left a bit disappointed, the flat white was okay however lacked any real body or intensity, just a plain generic merlo blend. The short black was even more disapointing, I could almost see the bottom it was that watery and lacked any crema.... Overall... Read more
What a cool little place.
It has a real Melbourne / Bohemian feel to it, staff was friendly and service good.
But what I don't get though is why put in a mainstream average coffee like Merlo.
My advice would be to upgrade the machine and change to a specialty coffee, get some... Read more

Good Merlo coffee. Basic but cool vibe. Townsville needed a place like this.
Awesome consistent coffee and yummy jaffles combined with funky artwork.
As far as Qld coffee goes, this place is right up there. Love the jaffles and very funky fitout. I'll always come back here when I'm in Townsville.
this place is such a breath of fresh air from the standard cookie-cutter cafe's in Townsville. it has a soul and the staff really make you feel welcome. i was in town from brisbane and used their free wifi and enjoyed what i consider the best coffee in town. the place is a real find. do yourself a...

Nice little shop, great for Townsville and good to see something a little different but the coffee isn't the best... I'll go here for a beer anytime... Merlo coffee and nothing spesh at all... :(
The Sweatshop never fails to deliver with friendly service, brilliant coffee and fresh, delicious food! As one of the only places in town to get Merlo, it had me at hello! The jaffles, free Wi-Fi and board games make it one of my favourite places and I love just spending time there..
By far the best coffee shop Townsville (and north Queensland for that matter) has to offer. A great selection of mouth watering jaffles and enough pieces of art and merchandise to keen you enticed and entertained for hours. Their selection of penny boards was my personal favourite. A Friendly Staff... Read more
