The coffee and food here is unmatched for Gordon but the poor service really lets the place down. The baristas are nice enough but are often found to be standing behind the bar talking and not engaging with customers whatsoever and the floor staff seem disinterested and unprofessional. Worth trying but don’t expect good service.
Coffee can be lovely, but I have experience burnt coffee from there many times. As a coffee enthusiasts myself with high experience in the coffee industry, this is just not acceptable. There is so much competition in the area that they need to pick up their game in order to keep their business running. Staff can be a bit slack and always seem like they want to be somewhere else. Credit card fees are ridiculous... we are in the 21st century. I have also had their credit card machine break on me and staff order me to go grab cash - my business was taken across the street. To keep me coming back they will need to improve. Ps. $7 for an ice coffee is $7 I can spend elsewhere.
The coffee here ranges from okay to quite good (usually more towards the bottom of that range), but you should come here for the pastries which are world-beating. The chocolate croissant here (but, weirdly, not at the Eastern Rd location in Turramurra) is one of the best two or three I've had in Sydney (up there with more famous places like La Banette or Flour and Stone). Some great breakfast options as well.
Solid coffee, really interesting maple bacon mac n cheese croissant breakfast thing. Industrial decor a little bit over the top. Some kind of vintage coffee grinder thing was taking up quite a bit of table space but that is the kind of madness you expect these days
