Coffee was drinkable 5/10 at most. Espresso was smooth but very weak. Our orders were barely warm. Girl who took my order was rude. Very little atmosphere. Place was cramped and felt claustrophobic. Very little seating. Not somewhere you'd have in, I suggest takeaway.

There is a small menu - food is prepared fresh. Some limited seating is available at a bench in a narrow corridor. The line can snake out to the footpath in the mornings. This may well be the best coffee in town.

I'm not sure what's happening lately, Laced - you guys used to be the best this side of the CBD! The last few weeks there have been new baristas (no Hayley seen in months! :( ) making the coffee and I have been drastically disappointed - the beverage has been milky (let me be clear, boiled-tasting milk) and the espresso indistinct. I've had to add a coffee bag later to get some flavour out of the drink. The baristas may still be finding their feet but perhaps need a bit more guidance before producing drinks on their own. They do not seem to care about the overall quality of the product. Somebody help! I don't want to stop going there!

There is a reason the line extends onto the street in the mornings. (There can be a delay in the rush hour). The product is consistently very good. It's a long narrow pokey space, but surprisingly welcoming.
