I used to frequent this place quite often on the way to work however I changed jobs and is no longer on my way to work. I decided to pop in yesterday for a latte and see if the coffee was as great as I had remembered it. Unfortunately, it wasn't. I must admit, they were pretty busy when I went in and the staff seemed pretty stressed and didn't seem to be listening when I was giving my order. My latte tasted like it had sugar put into it, although I asked for none. The latte was slightly cold, as if the milk had been sitting in the jug for a while. The place still had the funky suburban vibe which I do like about Retro, and the place is obviously doing something right if it's packed on a Saturday morning.
This place was previously part of my daily ritual until I got my own machine. The coffee isn't badly made, just not the best beans (segafredo) and need to add sugar!! This place would kick ass if they could get some locally roasted beans! Super friendly atmosphere, the staff are what makes it and it has good local vibe. Take away is really fast. Nice courtyard to sit out in on a sunny day.
