Popular cafe with an interesting fit out, using beans from Koppi in Sweden, grinding on Mazzer (couldn't see which) and an EK43, and running through a La Mar Linea (again couldn't see which). Wait staff were super friendly, choons were banging, but have to admit that the coffee did not blow me away. Had a dbl Espresso and a 3/4 FW. Dbl spro lacked depth of flavour, but with a little fine tuning might come in to its own. The 3/4 FW was too milky, though milk texture and temperature was on point, and bonus points for using fresh milk. My partner had a Chai latte which they absolutely nailed (spice of the clove and the sweetness were really well balanced), and we shared 2 cakes, both of which were delicious. Didn't have breakfast, but the menu was not dissimilar to one you'd find on the streets of Melbourne. This place was tough to review, as I feel on another day they may have an 8 or a 9 in them. I will be back to smash a breakfast and give the coffee another go.
