It’s ‘bean’ a year since last look here. Yup, it IS a hole in the wall, in a good location that is comfy and has brilliant coffee. The cafe makes the best of it’s locales and has become the local ‘go to’ place. Consistency is the key for me

I have to agree with Paddywagen, went there after reading all these stellar reviews and while the coffee was very drinkable it doesn't seem on par with others in the list. The atmosphere was a little bit too homey for my liking and lacked the design of some other cafes. Atticus Finch, John Mills, Told You So, Josie Nth, Lola Coffee, The Tiller all provide a much better offering in a more stylish environment. In saying that it was OK, I was just expecting more given that this app rates it as Brisbane's Best!

Hmmm, am I missing something? With such a great rating, I headed out to the Terrace and ordered a cup and it was- okay. Drinkable, definitely not earth shattering. Was it just an outlier? Certainly, the place was comfy and welcoming and the barista was extremely friendly and personable. It is obviously well loved by its clientele of regulars. I guess I just expected more- maybe it was the beans, but it just didn’t have hit of intense coffee and caramel flavours that defines a great extraction. I’ll give it a go again soon and hopefully it was s once off.

I tried this little coffee shop in Paddington today and was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the coffee and the friendly service. Will be back again soon to enjoy another.
