Came back and tried a latte this time as it has more mil, still too strong (never thought I’d finding myself saying the coffee is too strong) and unpleasant flavour. Sadly despite this being a wonderful little spot down an alley I’m gonna have to look elsewhere in Mudgee for that great coffee. Also find the service a little unfriendly.
Reviews of Alby & Esther's
Lovely setting, excellent service, delicious muffin but disappointing coffee. Based on other reviews I was really looking forward to a strong long black. While my long black was otherwise well executed, it definitely left me wanting.....a little insipid for my liking.
Amazing spot down an alley. Lots of signs insisting on table service and a long wait to get someone for service were a little off putting but the food was great. Coffee was so strong though it was a little overwhelming and I like strong coffee. Later I found out they use a double ristretto for small fw which I use at home but this was much stronger. Just a warning would have been nice to know before ordering. I think if they rethink this approach it will be even better.
Coffee had an interesting taste with a sweet start but a lingering and slightly bitter finish. The texture was creamy in our flat whites. The “gallery” was warm and comfortable on a cold winter morning but there were also outdoor tables for warmer weather. Service was very good indeed. Worth a visit.
