Great service,staff were friendly and went above and beyond to make sure we were happy. The eggs benny and açai bowl were delightful, next time I’d try the single origin coffee for a stronger tasting coffee but that’s more personal preference. Good range of milk choices including Bonsoy and milk lab.

Despite the underwhelming visit earlier in the year, I decided to give the café another try as they made the effort to respond to my review (kudos to the team for excellent customer experience management!). Plus recent reviews mentioned they’ve changed their beans from Single O to Zest Roasters and I was curious. My large almond milk cappuccino ($4.50) was made with Zest’s single origin Nicaragua. If I slightly disappointing with my first visit, then this visit certainty made up for it :). Smooth and aromatic, my coffee had a nice balance of intensity and complexity. Alas, I was too focused on catching up with a friend and didn’t pay as much attention as I should to the intricacy of the flavour profile. But it was definitely delicious and oh so easy to drink. Kudos for ensuring it was extra hot, just the way I like it. Coffee: 9 Service: 8 Atmosphere: 8

A fabulous ambience! Brilliant menu, catering intuitively for vegan, vegetarian, gluten free and standard dietary needs. Service was exceptional and the coffee was excellent! Highly recommended!

They recently changed roaster from single o to Zest and upgraded grinder and machine. Coffee tastes even better now and service is always consistently good.

Favourite local cafe! Best coffee in Rockdale by far and delicious food options. Staff are very friendly and attentive, it’s only made it easy for me to become a regular. Thanks Swallow!

Rich coffee, but not overwhelmingly so, nicely presented. Also tried single origin Shembati (Burundi), strong tones, rich flavours. Fabulous service, lovely presentation, casual and friendly staff, this place is the real deal.

Love this place. Hospitality done right. The people that work here make you feel welcome right away. Baristas are passionate about their craft and always happy to chat about coffee or help if you have any questions. Their selection of single origin beans is incredible. You can also chose from 4 different milk alternatives. Highly recommend.

Visited on Easter Friday for breakfast and Coffee. I had high expectations based on the fantastic reviews, but found the whole experience disappointing (....I won't include the breakfast review here as this is all about the coffee). I ordered my usual large almond milk cappuccino, extra hot with extra chocolate sprinkles on top ($4.50). My coffee was good, definitely above average, but there was nothing unique or particularly special to grab my attention. Not sure if this is because I had an excellent coffee prior from a different cafe and it skew my palate. Ok’ish in its attempt to be extra hot, but they hit my pet peeve by only filling up my keep cup ¾ full. Might give it another try when I haven’t already had a coffee.

Hi AlmondcapGal, Thanks for the feedback, we're definitely aiming for that 10/10 experience. We have three coffees (house + 2 singles) you can try from. hopefully when you come back you can find one you like =)
