Best cafe Anonymous in blue-mountains for 2016

I had a double shot FW, which was delicious. It was strong but not the least bitter. Food also great also but both were overshadowed by rude, unfriendly waitresses.

I’ve had a shot at a few long blacks and espresso’s. Coffee is quite over extracted. have minimum of $10 for card, and staff aren’t the greatest. Not a bad cafe just wouldn’t be my local.

Cassiopeia

Katoomba

Best cafe Cassiopeia in blue-mountains for 2016

Used to love the coffee here. Been back the last 2 days and both days the coffee was watery and weak. Pretty disappointing.

Was excited to try the coffee here as I saw they use their own blend. The staff were unenthusiastic although the guy pulling shots did offer a sincere thank you as we picked up our takeaways. I had a double shot latte which was weak and milky. My partner had a single shot latte which was just like warm milk. Sad to see that a cafe that was rated highly not that long ago has slipped so dramatically.

What the F@#k has happened here. Until recently this was the place for coffee in K Town. The locals in the know and Coffee aficionados from far and wide would seek out this little gem, but....In recent times the coffee and atmosphere has declined immensely. Coffee is very hit and miss, staff appear apathetic at times and the vibe is quite flat. I love this place and hope that it returns to the Cassiopeia of old.

Best cafe The Elephant Bean in blue-mountains for 2016

Friendly staff, quick service. Tasty coffee. Tight if you want to eat in but space to sit outside is a bonus.

Glenbrook

Best cafe 2773  in blue-mountains for 2016

Excellent cafe. Great menu for all sorts of meals and snacks. Great fresh roasted coffee. Heaps of seating but the cafe is incredibly popular and can get very busy. They have a great system of taking names when busy and you then walk around the village and they’ll call when they have a table. Open almost all public holidays as well

Best cafe DBL Ristretto in blue-mountains for 2016

Started going more often when I’m In Springwood. Lovely coffee, great range of food and healthy options. Also increasingly sustainable with community compost and grinds buckets. Lovely place to stop.
