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.

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.
