Fantastic little space with coffee roasted by Axil. Good service with very thoughtful staff. Had an espresso and flat white on the house blend. Flat white was chocolatey and full bodied with just a hint of carbon, above average milk texturing. Espresso was harder to drink, it had sweetness with a nice body, but slightly unbalanced. Most difficult because roast defects were more evident, roasty and astringent.
Even though I miss the original brothers who opened this place, I still enjoy visiting Workshop. The new owner, Dong, is such a lovely man. He has gone far and beyond to learn all the ins and outs about coffee, and has a great team behind him. I have to say, some of the best coffee roasted by Axil, has been enjoyed here. Dong does their beans the justice it deserves. Its so nice to see a café owner who knows what's important when running a café.
I came in around 7 am. The place was slightly empty. The guy in front of me got the wrong order, wasn't a good start. I ordered peanut butter waffles. The food was good. Slightly too sweet for my taste. But I can't fault otherwise. I also ordered filter coffee. I wanted something different from espresso. Sadly I was disappointed with my coffee. It was flavourless. The choice for the coffee cup was interesting to say the least. The atmosphere was nice. The food arrived promptly. Coffee also. But I can't say I'll be back for a second cup. It's sad I drove 20 minutes for this. Alas, lesson learned.
