We stopped here for coffee on a BeanHunter recommendation, after having lunch next door. I ordered a long black, though the others had an almond latte and a cappuccino. My long black was extremely disappointing: it was insipid and watery, with a burnt taste. The latte and cappuccino, on the other hand, were very well made. I had to return the long black as it was undrinkable, after which they made a slightly better (but still below average) one. I can only think, given the great reviews on BeanHunter, that other reviewers all had milky coffee and there is no demand for black coffee in Hawthorn, so the barista did not know how to make them properly. I won’t be back!
Really enjoyable great tasting brew! A favourite with the locals. Nice and close to Glenferrie station. If could change anything it would be to dim the lighting a touch in the back seating area to add a soft touch to the sweet smelling coffee grind aromas
