Reviews of Lava Espresso (Phillip)
Lava continues to get it right - a lot of care invested in each coffee I've had here. The space retains its slightly industrial origins- perfect for a place dedicated to coffee (although the usual smashed avocado options can be had here too). Big communal table for soaking up the winter sun streaming thru a northerly aspect.
Delicious, punchy flat white. Well balanced flavour and served at ideal temperature. Lava is a centre of calm in a suburb of small shops and light industry. Minimalist interior with sufficient elements of warmth. Had to steel myself at the counter against the decadent aroma of freshly ground beans and baked goods. Service was no fuss and speedy.
