It has been a long time since Liquid was using Blacksheep. These days it's under new ownership with some improvements and some fails. A much better selection of cakes, cookies and quick lunch options, but a cafe should be all about the coffee. The beans have changed over time from 'blacksheep', to 'social espresso', now it's 'cafe Aurora', which, for me is a massive fail! The barista is nice enough but always seems to burn the milk, and some times the coffee. I see Liquid now as a lunch option as the Byron Bay pies are beautiful! Especially when coupled with some hot chips from over the road at Anatolia kebabs...yum! If Liquid went back to blacksheep and a dedicated barista was employed, this place would reach the highs of 2014!
I've been wanting to try Liquid Espresso since moving into the Robina area. My only complaint is they're only open between 7:30am and 3pm on weekdays. Lucky me. I decided to work from home today, so what better decision than taking a nice walk along the canal (Riverwalk is a great stroll for singles, couples, and families) and head to the nondescript office building on Laver that houses the best little espresso bar on the Gold Coast. I have no clue what type of business goes on in the building, all I know is they do coffee business. Good enough for me. Now that I've tasted the smooth flat white made with love and attention by owner, and expert barista, Skye. I am seriously considering working from home full time. So if you are into delicious coffee, prepared by a super friendly barista, then take a detour from your shopping, and subpar cafes, at Robina Town Centre. Walk along the water where you'll see black swans, ducks, and a plethora of colorful birds, to delights in the Gold Coast's best hidden espresso bar (Or drive down Laver to the East Side Building where parking is free for two hours). Location: Main entrance (foyer). There's even a balcony to look out over the water. Pros: Coffee. - Friendly service. - Skye's honest approach to business and life. - Pretty much everything Cons: - Only open weekdays. - It might close soon. There has been a reduction of staff in the building which means the Espresso bar isn't doing so well. Skye tells me she's purchased a coffee van as a back up plan. I hope she services my workplace.
Loved the brew made by Sky, she was amazing and provided the best customer experience I have ever received. The latte was very strong, vibrant and full flavored. Would highly recommend people to stop in and grab a coffee during the week. I'll be making an appearance again and again.
