On a busy street corner so the ambiance was average. The shady trees helped somewhat. On the other hand the coffee was great. Double shot in our mugs of flat white without having to ask. Milk very well shaped and integrated into the whole drink. Service was fast, friendly and efficient.
The Search brings me to Cairns, a place I left in 2003, and every time I return for work I wonder why I left. Silk wasn't here back then and there were limited places to find good coffee. So it was a pleasure to find myself needing a coffee this morning and seeing a few mates from Brisbane queued at Silk. Knowing they are the fussy types too I stopped and grabbed my fix. I have a five more days up here. Silk will need to be open every one of those days...
This place was around the corner from my hotel and seem to be the place to go going by the amount of people there. My small take away was so weak it was more like a cup of warm milk with a hint of coffee thrown in. Guys, either use bigger baskets or double ristret the 8oz take away's. I would hate to think what the people who bought the 12 & the 16oz coffee's taste.
