Been there 3 times during the Christmas break - 1st time coffee was "fairly decent" 6.5/10. 2nd time I went it was Bad like 3.5/10. 3rd Time it was very average like 5.0/10. Too inconsistent for my liking. Its a shame because its in a great spot and is almost always busy.
I went there with my Dad for Lunch this afternoon and I had the Steak Sanger and Fries with an Almond Vanilla Milkshake to drink. My Dad had a regular Cappuccino The staff were kind to us and the service was excellent also it was nice of them not to charge me $2.50 for the fries since I had the Steak Sanger plain with Tomato Sauce.
Breakfast Sunday morning eating in, even though the cafe was really busy the customer service was excellent. 2 x large lattes were quite good, strong but still reasonably smooth not the best i have had but perfectly acceptable. Food was excellent and came quite fast for how busy it was.
It's always a buzzing happy place !! Service is welcoming and friendly !! Using a QLD blend keeping it Australian is an impressive statement ! Pulling it apart the coffee was extracted well revealing the character of the blend milk temp was spot on and the texture again was true for a flat white as requested !!! ;)
Milk texture was very close, but just a little on the frothy side. Crema was good. Extraction was good. Temperature good. However, despite all of that, the dominating taste was burnt / scalded milk. The milk wasn't re-heated, but I did notice that the empty jug was pretty grubby and maybe all that existing milk coating was the culprit that spoilt an otherwise really good coffee. I'll try and get a second opinion before leaving town, although the Toby's Estate at the other end of town is an attraction.
