Picked up a take away cappuccino yesterday. The coffee was a lovely smooth blend with the first sip bitter but it continued to get better with every sip. Really happy that door 34 lived up to its great reputation. The only downfall was a bit of a wait but that is expected when it is busy.
Grounds for espresso was pretty ordinary - too bitter with not much else. FW to-go was pretty solid if not outstanding.
First time at Sherwood. Had a triple shot latte and it was spot on. Good flavour, strength and smoothness. Will be back.
Didn't enjoy overly bitter espresso. Maybe I needed to ask for a single origin or something as this seemed to be made with care but just had a punchy blend flavour. The FW was good
Funky little espresso bar, awesome food. Coffee, two house blends and seasonal single origin each week.
Rwandan espresso was great with a balance of acidity, stone fruit and surprisingly a saltiness - excellent. Beautiful ceramic open cup for the shot. Tasty FW chaser. I like this place.
Indian espresso was a syrupy cocoa heavy number that went down so well I had a second straight away. FW traveller had a beautiful mouthfeel and malty taste. Just great.
Was pretty excited to see this place come up as number one in Newcastle so I definitely went out of my way to try it is a very nice smooth coffee but I'm not sure if its number one in Newcastle as there is some fantastic espresso bars with in the city.👍🏻
Thoroughly enjoyable. Staff are lovely, up for a chat and very kind. I ordered a large skim cappuccino and I thought it was very reasonably priced. Nice, smooth blend and very easy to drink- excellent temperature.
Very impressed with the filter coffee at this place. It has a nice little vibe and easy to get to.
Nice cosy cafe in unexpected location but great to drop in for coffee! Nice friendly workers that know coffee
Def NOT the best coffee in Newcastle... disappointed as so many rave reviews. just could not gel with my pic...imbalance somewhere. Cafe scene in Newcastle is growing up...this is a step backwards back to "Grunge"
Great spot with spectacular views of Lake Macquarie. Kombucca on tap. Coffee is quite strong but has a nice kick to it.
Very friendly service. Clean, high level food. Definitely worth a look if you're in the area.
Great coffee. Full of flavour. Usually well made. Been several times and only once was it served too hot/burnt. I've also stated buying beans here and they're pretty good.
very nice coffee always consistent and hot hotchocolate is one of the best
Great specialty coffee bar offering all the options and bits and pieces in an unlikely location such as a shopping centre. Coffee was on point and service was too.
The only place to get coffee at Kotara. Hard to get atmosphere in a place like this. But the coffee is good.
Lovely edgy vibe with nice coffee. Very strong blend with a smooth texture. Service was average and waitstaff appearance was very sloppy.
Cons: Dirty, over extracted, and inconsistent coffee. Slow-to-mediocre service. Don't serve black coffee with sparkling. Pros: casual vibe, community focused.
Consistently great & reliable coffee Can order ahead on 'HeyYou' Excellent menu
What no SUGAR! Coffee was so good it didn't need any!
That was The Best Coffee I ever had on Sunday 12 February! My husband was horrified you had no sugar but I really enjoyed it. Today I had a Campos coffee somewhere else ( Campos has always been my favourite) and it didn't come close. You are to be commended!!!!!
great coffee spot, great knowledge and passion.
Great coffee and the food was to die for! Probably the tastiest toastie I've ever had! Really friendly too! I live in the Gold Coast and I would definitely make a detour to eat here again!
friendly staff, very tasty food, great service and the coffee is perefect ☕
You can't get much better than these guys in newcastle Excellent coffee, excellent food and amazing service
Great coffee in a quiet location in Cooks Hill. Can get quite busy.
Always enjoyable, even bought some locally roasted beans they were selling, great in a cold drip and aeropress
Seriously good coffee, Welsh Blacks has a great atmosphere and the staff never dissapoint. They offer a constantly great cup of coffee, no hit and miss with the barristers. Highly recommended.
Great coffee, very friendly and such a relaxing place to sit and unwind
great coffee and atmosphere
Newcastle's answer to Black Books, this Hunter Street cafe has a simple Uni/hipster vibe in a dark bookstore. If that's not your thing, look elsewhere, but it's your loss. Excellent coffee, cakes & scrolls. + a good read & a game of chess.
Slight lack in consistency for the hot chocolate but it's usually good. Usually good coffee. Friendly staff, slightly overpriced food (especially when compared to Xtraction).
For a long time this was Newys best coffee, has dropped a bit, mostly because EVERYONE goes there now. Still great coffee can get very busy and the wait can stretch out a bit on the weekend.
Good coffee Good atmosphere Very busy on weekends
Best coffee in New Lambton!!
The coffee is inconsistent- some good, some not so good. Coffee temperature tends to be variable. Service is friendly but the place is generally busy and you may have to wait a long time for your order.
Good, strong coffee, extracted perfectly to my taste. Had a Large Strong skinny latte. Milk was well textured too. Food was great as well, ordered The Spicy Mexican corn fritters and although the flavour mix was absolutely spot on, the size was lacking for my preference.
