Critical Hit reviewed Jacu Espresso
Spotted this place driving by and remembered the name from BeanBrewding. Dropping in for a quick sweets break I found myself unable to resist ordering a serve of avocado on toast. I was pleasantly surprised to find a fresh take on a somewhat cliche dish. The mixed seeds and mint made it a winner for me. Banana bread was up next and likewise I was impressed, not just with the unique touches but also the serving size. I'm often left wanting more from banana bread at other cafes but at Jacu I was given more than I could hope for. Coffee was also great. I had a chemex (which I incorrectly listed as pour over in my Drinks) and my wife had a skinny cappuccino. Nice, strong flavour in the chemex and a good serving size. I read on BeanBrewding these guys use more coffee in the filter than most other places - thumbs up. The cappuccino was very smooth and didn't have the disgusting taste most skinny milks do. Service was lovely. A friendly greeting as you walk in is a great way to make customers feel welcome and that's what I got when I came in to order. I was treated to sufficient information about food and coffee. Table service was also very friendly. Nice work, Jacu.
