    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.

    delicious milk coffee, but my long black was smouldering hot unfortunately and pretty big, which may suit some people, just not the size I expected. Delicious milk coffee though!

    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 are great, consistent coffee, love the small snacks - very much a quick stop cafe with plenty of regulars. Keep it up!

    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

    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...

    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!

    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.

    Oscar Mike sports an upbeat, sleek yet casual vibe while serving a daily rotation of 5 Senses guest roasts, often a Single Origin (the Colombian Origin & the Tightrope blend remain the best coffees I've ever had). The baristi are easygoing, friendly and treat their craft as an art-form.

    Had a really great single origin (some Guatemalan) in my latte today. Really fruity and tasty - who knew coffee could be so delicious!

    Great care taken when making coffee. Filter basket used and produces smooth and creamy coffee.

    great to see a cafe getting their friends, family or staff giving props to their buisness...coffee is good though but I've had an average one or two when under the pump in the mornings ..so don't believe the hype
