    Had a cappuccino here yesterday and it was great. milk at perfect temp (not burnt) always a sign of a good barista. Strong deep seeded taste with notes of the roasted bean in the after taste. magical

    I must admit that I have both bad and good coffee in this area in the SAME cafe. I had a burnt magic which leads me to avoid this place for quite a while. It would be really good if they can produce consistent quality coffee. Other than that, all good.

    Great Colombian coffee by Five Senses, worked well as a short black. Yummy orange choc muffin to compliment. It was unfortunate to see the filter coffee option no longer available, but the espresso does the job none the less.

    This is one of the best places in Hawthorn. Great to see they are about to start doing cold drips.

    These guys just opened up for the first time at 7am today for their soft launch and I went in to try out their coffee. It was encouraging to see the words "Specialty Coffee" written on the sign of this very cute little cafe, which boasts a modern fit out, with a very open, spacious feel to it. I... Read more

    Coffee had one fault... too hot. Apart from that though my magic was delicious. Fruity flavours coming through and it had really good strength to it. Service was fantastic as usual and I love the set up.

    Always receive a great cup when I pop in here. It's a treat to be able to hide from the high volumes of foot traffic passing by and sit out in the back space with the freedom to relax and really savour the kicks of the latest single origin on offer or sip away at a deliciously smooth flat white at...

    It was a blessing to find this café after the terrible experience I had around the corner earlier.
    The staff here are easy going, and happy to serve you a coffee that actually tastes and looks like coffee- and not burnt gutter water.

    after so many good reviews, decided to give it a shot. wasnt a fan :-( latte tasted like sour milk and lacked any sort of coffee flavor. i will give it another shot and ask for a strong latte.

    What a wonderful cafe, hidden away from the main street this place is a little gem. Lovely efficient service and absolutely nailing 5 Senses Crompton Road blend!

    You know what I like? When you rock up & get a smile from the barista even when he is busy. Then you get friendly service and a cracking coffee. Nice1 I'll be back!

    I absolutely love the coffee here. wish I could have one every morning but I don't work there anymore. Swinburne students don't know how lucky they are.

    Not quite sure as to why these guys are scoring so high on the ol' reviews. I dunno, maybe it's just me, but I get a little bummed out when my long black manifests itself as a pint of coffee water. The aquatic flavour conversion of free range...

    Had a nice latte, which I found buttery taste, by far the most different taste in coffee I've ever tasted before. Despite the limited space, this nice cozy cafe do serves a very nice cup of coffee.

    Was in the area few weeks ago went past this little cafe and it was very interesting. Ordered a double risttreto and noticed some delicate flavours of blueberry floral notes that run through the pallet with syrupy, lemon acidity and a creamy, toffee caramel feel. Overall very well balanced and... Read more

    Very nice coffee with a good latte art and right amount of foam. But I don't understand the bubbles on the top of foam. But in general the coffee is good. About the staff, is ten am too early for them? Feel to me they are still sleeping. Or they are just too shy to say hi?

    These guys love their coffee and take pride in it going to extreme lengths about the type of milk they use for both regular and soy coffees. The food is very good and the coffee almost always excellent. The decor kind of sucks, nicer to sit outside. My favourite place in Hawthorn for take away coffee.

    Coffee was okay. Was treated really bad by a young staff there. We speak the same accent, I just don't understand why he gave me that piss off face when I asked questions. Working in an Australia cafe doesn't make you any superior than us, my dear home kid. Pathetic!!
