Well in the middle of the city, in such a great location and basically a coffee cart setup....with Circular Quay just across the street we had high hopes of a good coffee. On a three day visit from Brisbane, where cbd coffee carts produce some rockin good espresso, we thought it would be the same here. So before jumping on a ferry, we steered ourselves away from the bigger touristy waterfront cafes and came here. At over $4 for a small coffee, I was a tad surprised. hmmm thought prices would be more competitive here? Coffee took a while to come out as female barista was busy chatting to someone they knew and my coffee was being extracted and poured at the same time. Hubby said, it won't be good...she's distracted. But hey I know many a great barista who can do both! My flat white came out with a pale crema, NO latte art, not even a little white blob. It was pale, weak, insipid coffee, with a slightly stale bitter flavour. Two sips and we got up and walked. As the previous reviewers said....don't, just don't be tempted.....walk and find somewhere else. :(
