Lost and unhappy staff is the polite way to put the service at this place. I hate giving negative feedback, but no smile, no care for customers, doesn't even listen to what the customer is saying, and worst of all, standing calling drinks because they are not sure who ordered it. Not even going to go to how the drinks tasted.
I have been visiting Little Bean Blue at Eastland shopping centre about twice a week for the past month. The coffee is just to my liking. Great mellow flavour, never bitter. Cups are great too. I have also had the mocha which is smooth and creamy. The proprietor is friendly and welcoming.
This café was one of my favourite finds of 2016. I went there on Monday for a coffee and had to get them to re-make it, and when they did it was still very average. The butter biscuit that I ordered with it was stale and tasted like it had come from a packet. Overall my impressions of the café (from the coffee, to the biscuit, to the tub of meadow lea margarine in the display cabinet) made me suspect that it must have changed hands. Will not be back. The search for decent ☕ within Eastland begins again. 🤷♂️
last and final visit here. i dont like to give bad reviews based on one visit, so this is based on three visits, with this final visit being my worst experience here. firstly, the coffee is average. On par with Jamaica Blue. Never at the right temp and the milk doesnt taste too fresh. There seems to be no passion from the barista, like they dont want to work there. coffee aside, the service on all three visits has been appalling. I feel like i am putting the staff out by ordering a coffee. Not once have i seem any staff member smile. I wish I'd recieved the same service that other reviewers have experienced, but 3 strikes and they're out. Sorry guys.
Rated coffee a 9. Consistently excellent. Number one mistake cafes make is overheating the milk. I've had 5 cappuccinos here and each one has been quality. Rated service 10 out of 10. Always with a smile and wait time is minimal. Unfortunately I couldn't rate atmosphere high as the cafe is in the middle of a shopping centre. Rated atmosphere a 6. If you want a cafe that clearly has experience and expertise in making coffees then this is the place to go.
