It was a great place some time ago. C 10years ago. Now it is all automated and soulless service. No real baristas to be found

I've had a couple of excellent soy flat whites here (also at a much cheaper price than most places in London and with nice latte art) - it's my new favourite in the area

Really disappointing coffee. Was asked what size flat white I want?? Place feels deeply soulless. Service was okay, but nothing to write home about. This is what happens when location is all you need to be successful.

U.K. Esquire magazine rated this cafe in the top 10 cafe's in London. Quite an accolade. It sat amongst some tried and tested faves on this list. I live relatively locally and had never even noticed it before despite its prominent position on a world famous stretch of road. I decided to seek it out and used it as a meeting place for coffee appreciating friends visiting from Melbourne (a city renowned for its widely available amazing coffee). What a disaster. What an embarrassment. This cafe is devoid of any soul. The decor is like a school canteen. The staff are moody and look completely disinterested. I asked for a flat white and they asked me which size I'd like. Never a good sign. A flat white only comes in one size. 6oz - 2oz of espresso and 4oz of steamed milk. *sigh* I asked for 6oz and I got a blank look. Small medium or large she says coldly as she stares out the window. *double sigh*. I could get over the decor and the attitude if the coffee was good. Sadly the coffee was almost undrinkable. I couldn't finish it. Without exaggeration you can get a better cup out of a Nespresso. Despite sitting in, all coffee is served in paper cups. The grind was not even a million miles close to being dialled in. The milk was watery and luke warm at best. No attempt at any milk art. One guy with a ginormous jug was just rapidly pouring milk into lined up paper cups, smashing them out like a cheap production line. Why this cafe has any queue is absolutely beyond me. I will not in a million years be returning to this place. A week later the horrific aftertaste still lingers on my palate.

Impressed with the coffee, certainly thousand times better than a chain like Starbucks! Double shot macchiato had good strength and smooth creama. Needed a little sugar for my taste, but lovely to sip in the sun. Average inside, a little bland on decor, but coffee service was quick and croissant was deliciously crunchy and buttery. Will be back when next near Portobello Rd...

Non-descript coffee that certainly isn't worth seeking out. My regular-sized coffee was served in a cup that was way too big & scorchingly too hot. And the coffee itself tasted bland & uninteresting. It's unusual that I don't finish a cup, but here I left half the cup behind. In fairness, the coffee here is about as bad as what you get at a Starbucks or any other High Street Chain. These days there aren't many coffee options on Portobello Rd, so in that sense, this is your best bet if you're in need a fix.

Quite enjoyed my coffee, was served quickly on a busy Saturday and wanted to buy the sweets on offer. Funny vibe but good coffee the day I visited
