Terrible experience here. The owner is a prize knob jockey who thinks his Parisian attitude adds to the character of the place, not. He was annoyed because we sat down and only ordered coffees and no food as we had to be back at work. How do I know? Because the try hard Parisian bluntly told us so! The coffee served was horrendous which I can only assume was a ploy to move us on quickly. It worked but I'll never spend a cent there again.
Coffee was ok strong and not the best flavour. Having been to other cafes using those beans this one would be on the lower end... But the food was amazing really enjoyed it and the all around atmosphere was great. But yes very French including the service! Not bad for a once off!
Hey Jupiter, how about a smile? Gorgeous tile frontage in stunning lime. But the welcome left something to be desired. I hadn't been there before and instead of explaining they would like to do table service, after I ordered my coffee they told me to sit down. But I wanted something to eat. I spied a croissant in the cabinet. Can I have a croissant? Sitdown! Then I took a place stone of the charming tables outside looking out at the street. Very Parisienne! The waitress took my coffee order, again and my order for a croissant. She did not bring me a menu. And despite my bestest efforts to smile and get one in return I was bang out of luck. My espresso was fine. Not exciting but not bitter or weird. The latte was a double shot but again there was not discernable flavour. Just a decent coffee. My bill was brought to my table without asking. Anything. Then the guys at the table next to me started smoking. Adding to the French vibe!
