Not particularly impressed. Fashionable yet slightly uncomfortable seating. Call me old-fashioned but I enjoy a cushioned chair. Propped up against the hard wall I struggled to read the book I bought and enjoy my espresso as other customers spilled over the edges of the premise (perhaps my error in judgement in bringing a book). Despite this the service was warm and friendly! The coffee was on the thin side; it lacked the rich, woody and earthy taste I enjoy and left me a little depressed and craving a decent espresso. However, this is a personal preference. Location wise the cafe is surrounded by beautiful leafy trees and escapes the hustle and bustle of neighbouring Crown St.
Same Kenyan I tried at Salvage but on a slightly reduced volume. It had a citrus, tending to marmalade vibe, aftertaste brought an increase in bitterness - nice shot. Very distinct hazelnut flavour to the batch, coupled with the finishing clean sweetness made it very enjoyable.
