Long black was not too acidic, not too bitter, good balanced with stone fruit flavors. Always a surprise to taste what can do talented baristas with good beans well roasted.
I've had such a good experience here. GREAT service, loads of chats with the staff and great brownies.. the staff loved to chat about coffee. Keep up the great work! 10/10 experience
Disappointed the first time but went back in hope that it was just a bad day. I was wrong. Average coffee, shame for ONA. No vibe. Littler- no service. #toocool
LB2 Cafe is a boutique coffee shop in Melbourne CBD, serving up Axil and Cartel Coffee.
Silky washed Columbian espresso from Axil on a large volume, had a lovely citrus feel - seriously good. Flatty traveller had spot on texture, taste and temp
The best on a Saturday morning.. they have a huge selection of single origins on pour over. Helen is lovely!
My third visit to LB2. They all seem very friendly and welcoming. willing to have a bit of a coffee chat. The options of blends and single origins are great. They seemed a bit busy which may have accounted for the over textured froth on top of my flat white. This was replaced for free when highlighted. But was still not great. Worth a visit, but a little disappointed.
First impression was that there people take their coffee very seriously. A blend and a Guatemalan single origin from Axil and another single from Uncle Joe's. I had a strong flat white on the Axil blend (4 South American beans). The cup was initially just a touch too hot to be comfortable and obscured the flavour but as the cup cooled the beautiful chocolate and caramel tones came through with an impressive strength. The aftertaste of cacao on the tongue was brilliant. I would love to take the time to try the single origins but I've got my caffeine quota for the day! Maybe next time!
Its been a while, but the coffee is still excellent. As is the service. The new Purple Haze blend is a delight.
Cappuccino was great! Smooth, frothy with right consistency. My only negative is limited cake variety and display.
An organic wholefoods store turned cafe. The storehouse puts meticulous time into training all staff to make coffee perfect. If you're after a milk coffee you'll be spoilt with latte art every time. The atmosphere is contemporary & inspiring and the staff could make a pauper feel like a king.
Exceptional! Literally no complaints
As a barista, and as a customer, I cannot go past this place without stopping for a latte. Always top notch and the staff are the friendliest in the business.
Best bloody cafe in Mount Evelyn. Hellerrrr.
Every single coffee, cupping, and conversation there has been amazing :) they remember you, chat with you about coffee, and you walk away feeling great!
Do yourself a favour and visit Aunty Peg's! Great coffee, great staff, great music. 10/10
You can't describe it ,just experience it. Really nice shop . Friendly stuff !!!!
Good drinks and fast service and they get you out of the door in no time. Not the right place if you want to sit down to drink a coffee. Good for a fast take awat
Great spot for some of the best espressos in town. The filter isn't quite up to my taste, but that's because it's usually just a tiny too light and floral. I would prefer the ratio be a tinge different. Still good though! Service is great and the area feels very "Melbourne" when you sit outside the alley on a milk crate :)
Pretty good vibe. 7/10 coffee.
Still my favourite spot in the CBD for a quick espresso. Legitimately take the long way home to pass by!
Excellent coffee but cremer could have been thicker / but still fabulous tasting. Chatter from the guys lovely. Degraves st tunnel is so funky why doesn't Melb City council make it a happening place? Good job Cup if Truth
Cool setup that gets very busy during peak periods. Coffee was bang on. Left me a happy camper.
The size of this cafe is a bit like a large cupboard, but when the weather permits there is additional seating outside. However the coffee quality more than compensates for any downsides. Recommended.
Easily best serious coffee in Moonee Ponds. Great range of specialty coffee and alternative methods. Had a Ethiopean V60 pour over and wife had a “soy latte”. Owner seems like a genuine coffee lover and happy to talk about his beans. Will be back :)
By far the best coffee in Moonee Ponds! I had the espresso and my partner had strong flat white and we were very content with the drinks and food we had. The owner seems to be a coffee lover and he surely made this couple super happy! We will surely go back again!
Really nice piccolo though I keep forgetting that when in Oz, always ask for a double shot.
Nice little venue tucked away in the back streets. My piccolo was perfect but my follow up latte was just a little weak for my preference. Limited food menu
Tasteful renovation/expansion on what was here. Not a big fan of the new coffee they use now though. Undercover roast came through as smoky in my long black.
I’ve tried my usuals. A long black first, bitterness and acidity very well balanced, aftertaste long and sweet. To go I ordered a soy latte, was too hot, so the milk curdled, shame! Attentive and friendly staff.
I had a tasty Ethiopian single origin with surprising flavours and yummy roll with beetroot and goats cheese.
A surprise little packet. For a small venue it’s food menu is large and they don’t skimp on the size of the servings. Love that the long black came with a side of soda water
Its been a while since my last visit, but the coffee is still up there with the best of them. From the Ethiopian natural from Chelelektu, to the Ninety Plus game changing Panama Gesha- not a drop was left in my cup. 10/10
Such consistently good coffee. A choice of 4 single origins available roasted in house. I had a flat white on the Brazilian. It was beautiful.
My high expectations were met and exceeded. Great coffee and good energy.
In the heart of Glen Waverley, Black Flat is your local hole in the wall coffee house. Brewing house blend from Axil Coffee Roasters on our La Marzocco GB5 and Filter Coffee from various roasters including Wood & Co, ACoffee, Proud Mary's and Maker Fine Coffee.
The little "hole in the wall" cafe near the station is still producing delicious coffee with Axil beans. My flat white was spot on.
Latte with Axil beans was a bit bland. Filter out of moccamaster was great
Coffee was more fruity than I prefer, but a well made piccolo with good crema. The Granola bar is a good accompaniment. Service was polite and quick.
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.
