This café is not just a coffee dispensary, but also an educational excursion. From the moment you walk in, your view is inundated with medical paraphernalia. Vintage cabinets display delicious cupcakes, while the counter exhibits pastries and sweet treats on an antique scale. Once you get past admiring all the old lab ware, and medicinal apparatus, you find yourself at a slick LaMarzocco, and a friendly barista ready to take your order. Ok, so they only do espresso in an Allpess blend- but its done very well. No bitterness, and a big bodies shot, with a darker roast that one knows to expect from Allpress coffee. I cant fault this place- its clean, its fresh, the staff are very welcoming, and the coffee is what I would anticipate from Allpress .
Smooth coffee and also a great malted vanilla milkshake. Cakes and biscuits are delicious. Love the music and the clean fresh fitout. Also a part of history, with an excerpt typed from an old Argus newspaper article framed in the cafe announcing the opening in 1940 of the first combined dispensary and clinic in the British empire.
