Excellent coffee, does a lot of takeaway but, thankfully, you can dine in and sip from a real cup. Both indoor (long corridor) and outdoor (footpath) seating. If you like the music, fine - sit in the middle but otherwise it can be obtrusive. However the coffee is what counts and it is smooth, nicely balanced and rich with no bitterness signifying perfect extraction. Value too as our short black and two long blacks was a shade over $10.

The one and only keeping it real in the CBD. If you want to feel alive go here. If you want to know what's going on in music that counts, go here. If you want to die a slow, painful, boring and anonymous death, go somewhere else. Oh yeah, and the coffee is unparalleled. Strong, smooth and as sure as a freight train in the night.

I go here every day and so lucky it’s my local and right under where I work!! All the guys know the regulars... your name, your coffee and where to find your tick card amongst the 100s :) always so busy but very quick!! Great vibe and it’s the highlight of my work day! Oh yes best coffee too!! Funky hipster coffee all the way!!

Had two double ristrettos. One the house blend and one a single origin El Salvador bean. The house blend was dark and rich but lacked finesse. Better for milk coffees. The single origin was sweet and had excellent fruit notes. A real winner.

This is the best, most consistent coffee I've ever had. I will miss these guys and their fabulous work terribly when I move back to Sydney.

My favourite. My local. If you're in the vicinity and looking for coffee, look no further. The team here are great, really friendly and awesome service. The coffee hits the spot and they efficiently pump out the coffee at a great rate of knots.
