Great coffee, good lunch and then great coffee again. Their piccolos looked good, tasted superb and would have been proudly served by any good Aussie coffee shop. Only downer was that specialty coffee.in Singapore costs a fortune - anywhere from S$5 to $6.50 a coffee and Ronin was no exception.

SteveR reviewed le petit atelier
The flat whites didn’t quite match up to expectations based on previous reviews. Initial impression as delivered was the coffees looked right but the taste was quite bitter. Lots of stirring and drinking water between sips and they tasted ok. Still was a lot beefed than most of the alternatives in Tours.
SteveR reviewed MOKUSKA Caffe
Visited twice on the same day. We opted for flat whites both times as they do double shots and the coffee is not overpowered by the frothy milk. Tried the house blend in the morning and coffee was only luke warm but tasted good. In the afternoon we had the Guatemala blend which i really liked and this time it was also the right temperature, about 65 degrees.

Recommended by our daughter we visited twice on our only day in Split. Coffee was superb and certainly left all other coffee we have had on the Croatian islands over the last week. The owner had listed all the usual types of espresso coffee other than piccolo or cortado, but when asked knew what a piccolo was and proceeded to produce excellent versions for both of us. On our second visit we came with friends who ordered a latte (looked like a flat white) and a herbal tea. All were happy with the quality but agreed the coffee was closer to 55 degrees and could have been a little hotter. All up though a very welcome experience in a coffee shop that could fit in anywhere in Australia’s capital cities.
This place lived up to its reviews which were a year old when we visited. We both had cortados (another name for piccolos) and they were prepared quickly and with good barista skills. Good temperature and nice aftertaste, we will be back.

Saturday lunchtime and the place was doing ok without buzzing like its competitor next door. Service started a bit slow but picked up once lunch was ordered. Coffees were strong and quite nice on the pallet but the head was too airy. Food was superb.
SteveR reviewed Folks Gallery
A new cafe and gallery hidden away on the ground floor of the new apartment building opposite the Buddha statue. Vincent the owner/barista is using Campos coffee plus a range of origin coffees. When we ordered piccolos he assumed we knew our coffee and he offered a choice from the origin coffees. We tried the Tanzanian for its chocolatey influences and he prepared two excellent piccolos, although perhaps with a hint of what we refer to as the peculiar Melbourne roast taste. Besides coffee Vincent only has some locally sourced pastries including delicious Portuguese tarts that we really enjoyed. He says he looking for a supplier to move into offering lunch as well.
Still serving coffees in ceramic cups and no mugs available. Flat white and latte looked the same and my piccolo was very milky due to the barista filling the cup to about 80% full. No thought this time about returning for a second cup.

Served take away coffees while we waited 20 minutes for s table. 3 piccolos and a flat white were quickly prepared and served and tasted delicious. We removed our plastic lids before drinking and the coffees also looked well prepared. Lunch was excellent once we were seated. The crispy pork belly which two of us had were especially well received and fully devoured. My quaesadilla was also delicious.

Came off our flight and saw positive reviews so we popped in for take away piccolos. Service was good and prompt, coffees looked very good and had been nicely prepared. A little strong to taste but overall pretty good for take away..
Good coffee without being exceptional. Took a while to prepare our piccolos and when they arrived they looked good, the temperature was good and the taste was strongish but could have been smoother on the back of the throat. Aftertaste lingered and was ok.
Dropped in for piccolos mid afternoon and was delighted with the quality from essentially a food cafe servicing Woolies customers. Coffee was served in ceramic cups, was a good temperature and tasted pretty good. Four of us dropped in the next morning for breakfast along with many others. Three piccolos were served in cardboard cups while the mug of long black was served in a ceramic mug. The piccolos were just a little better than ordinary and mine was spilled and left to me to clean up.

It’s a take away Campos coffee station with some outside seating and located near the Woolworths front door. My piccolo was prepared quickly and up to the usual Campos standard although could have been a couple of degrees hotter.
SteveR reviewed Two Birds One Stone
Called in for piccolos and lunch. Piccolos were ok but based on reviews we expected more. As non Melbournians we have noticed that many Melbourne coffees have a particular taste which seems acidic and Two Birds fits into this category. We both tried the specials for lunch and my duck pasta was excellent.
SteveR reviewed The Final Step
Visited three times over three days and got the same barista twice. Both baristas prepared superb piccolos in good sized ceramic cups. Presentation and taste were all consistently excellent. Particularly liked that as we entered on our second time with first barista he remembered us and knew our coffee choice.
SteveR reviewed The Coffee Pedlar
Saw the sign on the highway and looked up the reviews and then headed in to Gundagai to try the coffee. It’s apparently the second offering after Tumut and it’s certainly better than anything along the highway at Gundagai. Coffees were nicely prepared using Fish Rosters Coffee and had a strong taste. Not quite to my taste but my partner thought the taste was excellent. Good range of pastries too and we enjoyed the lemon slice.
SteveR reviewed 7 beans coffee
Surprisingly empty cafe at 8:30 on a Tuesday morning and we wondered about coffee quality. We needn’t have bothered, the barista was very pleasant, he made two excellent piccolos and went out of his way to bring us iced water without us having to ask. Can see why its number 1 in Echuca.
SteveR reviewed Doc Yarrum Cafe
Actually located on the corner of Sanger and River and the awning simply says Docs. Doc Yarrum is Murray Cod backwards, hence the large drawing of a Murray Cod over the door. Our piccolos were excellent - served in ceramic cups and nicely prepared. We also shared some cake which was delicious.
SteveR reviewed Cibo Glenelg
Popped in for coffees around 10 pm on the TDU Glenelg Street party night. Huge crowd all along Jetty Road and CIBO was full and buzzing. Notwithstanding this we quickly found seating and put our orders in. Equally quickly our buzzer went off and we collected our four coffees. My piccolo was excellent - look, taste and temperature were spot on. A nice way to conclude our time at the street party.
SteveR reviewed Mr Nicks Kitchen and Coffee Bar
Decided to try the specialty coffee shop inside the Pasadena Foodland and very pleased with the result. It’s set amid the supermarkets restaurants and bakery with plenty of seating. We ordered coffees and pastries from the baker and all were delivered to our table quickly. My piccolo was nicely prepared and tasted good - a good medium roast.
