I was so excited about this place when I read about this hole-in-the-wall cafe/takeaway coffee joynt - it looked very promising when I learnt they use Blackstar. Blackstar normally has a good body with lots of subtle flavours. I enjoyed most coffee at cafes that use Blackstar. Unfortunately, Vulture's Treat is an exception. Coffee was extremely bitter with not much flavour. I could get a better cup from a cafe a few hundred metres down. The setting looked good with nice cute red cup and saucer, and converted old-door tables. But when I took a seat in the courtyard of Swampdog, I had to put up with the stench of garbage from rubbish bins near the kitchen until a storm hit the area. The owner and chef were really friendly and pleasant, which was really good, but not good enough to compensate bad coffee. I would not mind visiting Swampdog for fish and chips, but not for coffee. There are a number of places that offer much better coffee in the area.
