Consistently great food and good coffee. It's been the busiest spot in Ballarat for years with locals for good reason.

I like the feel of this cafe as I enter. Pleasant music - not intruding and enough sound deadening to make it possible to talk and be heard. But coffee is the goal of being here. The coffee - double shot cafe latte - is mellow and strong enough. No hint of bitterness and great textured milk. Very enjoyable. Served in a standard glass - wonderful. So many places seem to be going with the 'more is better' these days with an attempt to get differentiation by size of vessel. No thanks. Excellent service, although the plate my escargot was on was truly whipped away when I finished. By the way, the escargot was yummy. Served at room temperature - which I prefer and went well with the coffee.

Good consistent coffee. Tasty with good character and not too overpowering. Great to find not scalding hot coffee in country Victoria.

Coffee wasn't too bad, however I don't think there is any excuse for using Vitoria beans when you are an hour from Melbourne and some of the best roasters in the world!!

I've been here a few times in the past week and have found the coffee to be very nice. I would have no qualms about recommending this place to fellow coffee aficionados. The cafe has a nice vibe and the staff are friendly and attentive.

Visited this place recently for breakfast on Saturday morning - was a regular many years ago and was happy to look it up again. And so glad I did - as always, fantastic coffee, great menu and efficient service. AND an impressive collection of CDs and vinyl for sale. Don't bother with anywhere else in Ballarat, seriously....

Coffee ok ... Although been many times and it's different every time. Today was no exception. What is consistent is the blank faced staff who look/act too cool to serve you anything but a story on how they work in the scene. Breakfast is usually ok but not outstanding. Are people just fooled by its popularity and coolness?
