Asked for double ristretto. The answer was a polite “we don’t do ristrettos”. Okay. Ordered small strong flat white. Milk was only so-so. Light roast, dominated by sour / sherbet. Likely better as an espresso...or a double ris...but we already covered that. La Marzocco strada, Mazzer Robur grinder. Cool vibe. Very uni hipster. Tatted man bun guy serves an okay cup. This pretentious Australian continues the search for great coffee in the United States.
I saw this place on been Hunter so walked over. Was not let down. Good coffee the guys behind the counter care about what they are doing. Would be very happy to drink this coffee everyday Im here for the next week. I drink a soy flat white. They knew what it's was. Coffee is smooth.
I was so glad to find Cartel in old town Scottsdale. I'm by no means an accomplished reviewer, all I can say is the cappuccino was pretty much as good as all my favorite places at home in Sydney. Seeing the La Marzocco machine was a good sign, and the space is lovely and light filled with minimalist decor and benches where you can spread out. Would definitely recommend to anyone!
