Literally the worst place to eat and get coffee.... well that might be a bit over an over statement, I mean if you ever get your food or coffee. I thought the first visit I had was a once off bad day but unfortunately it was backed up by a worse experience the next visit. The wait for food service and coffee delivery is beyond excruciating and the value for money? Well let’s say that bad taste wasn’t washed away by the coffee because it never came. Two vists, both duds. I won’t be back for a third.
This place confuses me. The layout is awesome. The servers are lovely. But the food is super low quality, and the coffee is not great. I love the way it’s all displayed and “deconstructed” - super clever. But the flavour is soooo not on par with the other yummier coffees that the Gold Coast has to offer. With all their beautiful marketing and plating I’d expect a bit better quality in the food and drink. But that’s me! It’s still a cool place to meet with friends. Just not as satisfying as it could be.
2nd wave coffee, made well, not a lot of up front acidity and a medium body, good but not exceptional, but they have friendly staff and easy parking. Pros Nice staff, great quirky fitout and a good location, coffee 7/10. Cons Coffee and food is served in paper cups and paper plates. Fairly disappointing and not enviro friendly at all. We all prefer some nice ceramics when we choose to go out for a brew. No single origin either 😥
I've made this my local. I enjoy the coffee immensely as it's Allpress. The staff are always friendly and they make the effort to chat as i'm a local. The food, especially the smoked salmon (cold smoked steak) is amazing but the whole menu works well. A good variety of acia bowls and juices as well.
Good place and good coffee. Really nice vibe very relaxed. The service is counter service which is ok in this environment as it works. unsure about super busy times though. Broad drinks range and good range of food. The food we ordered arrived promptly and was delicious. The coffee arrived quickly - before the food which I appreciate. Local juices are great. The service was knowledgable and enthusiastic. They know their products and enthuse about them. I was persuaded to get an extra shot in my large flat white and it needed it. Very hot place in summer but very good layout. Minimalist laid back place - don't expect silver service. If you're in the area - it's a great option for a laid back breakfast or relaxing coffee.
