We were just off the boat early in the morning and looking for a pick-me-up. A quick search on Beanhunter pointed us to Fundamental Expresso, which is deservedly a top cafe in Devonport! When we arrived, there was a queue out the door - mostly for takeaways luckily, so we’re able to find a spot to sit. The ambiance is light and pleasant with a bit of a warehouse feel. We had long blacks which were just right - strong, dark and chocolatey. The pastries were good too. I would definitely recommend this cafe for anyone coming off the ferry early in the morning - it is only a 5 minute drive from the terminal.
Coffee was excellent but we needn’t have ordered double shot 3/4 full lattes as a single shot would have been strong enough. Coffee was very strong but the texture and temperature were spot on. Nice modern espresso bar with lots of seating to drink in. Staff were very friendly and service quick.
Interesting ambiance with an industrial feel (polished concrete floors and stark white walls). Music was loud and the result was a lovely buzz. Coffees were great with great mouthfeel and well shaped milk. The lingering bitterness was most pleasant. Worth a visit.
