I enjoy places like this. Old Italian coffee houses that roast in house. The coffee reminds me of my youth. The blend is not as sophisticated as a lot of the more modern roasters and the decor is not as "grunge" (it probably won't appeal to the hipster crowd), but it has a real authenticity that I like.
Full of character, starting with the wood-carved motorbike at the front. My single o Peruvian ristretto was so light in flavour I was left doubting myself. Was it too sophisticated and subtle for me? The man at the front was happy to address my coffee needs but the baristas behind the machine were much less approachable or talkative.
This is my favorite coffee in the area. Strong yet creamy. Try one of the single origin blends for a treat. Food is good too, dinners and breakfast. I don't buy the cakes as they're very overpriced. Service is good or pretty average depending on who you get. I think it's the wife of the owner= rude.
Happened to be passing at 9pm last night and as all coffee lovers know; there's never a bad time for a coffee!!! The place was buzzing, both inside and out. My coffee was very good; just like it used to be, full bodied and made very well. It is not the most sophisticated of House blends, but it does have a nice taste, a little fruity in aftertaste, perhaps just lacking the nuances the best roasters impart.
