A limited range of milk based coffees so we opted for double shot lattes and were delighted with the taste. Presentation was first class and not a drop spilled from full cups notwithstanding the steep climb from the machine on the ground floor to the table area on the first floor. Location wise this cafe is directly across the road from the Floating Garden building bus park and is only a short walk via a walkway to the Grand Front Building.

We had Gibraltar’s which is what I would call a decent sized piccolo. I opted for the Dominican beans and this seemed to push the price up by 100 yen per glass. The taste of the coffee was too fruity for us and hence the coffee rating was lower than otherwise would have been the case as in all other respects the coffee presentation was first class and topped off by very friendly staff.

We tried small, double shot, cafe lattes in cups. Preparation time was slow but the result was coffees with heads that gave the impression the coffees would be super strong, but I’m fact they tasted superb but should have been 5-10 degrees hotter as they were only luke warm. Sporty is located in a clothing shop on a quiet side street but it has a nice seating area outside facing the street.

Finally found this coffee shop after initially finding and below reviewing its second shop. Did not try this shop but don’t follow the directions offered as it’s located in Porte near the entrance to the subway station.

We visited three times over two days and thoroughly enjoyed our double shot small lattes each time. Staff are very friendly and all seem to have spent time as baristas in Australia where they learnt to make great coffees. Well worth the visits!

We visited the Ogawa Coffee across the road from the station in the Kyoto Tower Building. We had lattes and the coffee looked good, tasted ok and was the right temperature. The coffee was served in cappuccino cups but still tasted like lattes. Will order double shots next time just to get a stronger flavour. Place had lots of seating but looked like a cafeteria. Service was quick and efficient with coffee brought to the table.

This shop has either moved or opened a second shop as it’s located behind the main shrine. Hot coffee options were limited to espresso, cappuccino and latte. We opted for the latter which arrived looking like s nicely prepared flat white. Temperature was perfect and tasted like it was made from good beans. Staff were friendly and efficient.

Not sure if they moved or opened. Second shop but we visited the one behind the Itsukushima Shrine . We both had hot cafe lattes which were served in cappuccino cups and were presented like flat whites. Tasted great and were prepared to just over 60 degrees. Service was quick and pleasant.

Ordered cortados and were very disappointed. Blue Monday is a hole in the wall coffee shop that provided either sink in or out. We received our coffees in glass piccolo cups and the options were stand st the bar or a couple of seats. Coffee looked good but the taste was of super strong coffee which left a bitter after taste that lasted for more than 30 minutes. We arrived full of expectation and left disappointed.

We visited four times over three days and the coffee was consistently good. We had macchiatos which were the equivalent of small piccolos. They use pods from Italy rather than fresh coffee beans, but taste was excellent and the milk was textured perfectly. Staff spoke a little English and we had pleasant conversations.

I tried a double shot latte in a small take away cup. The coffee was delicious but could have been a couple of degrees hotter to get over 60 degrees. The barista was friendly and chatty and made me feel welcome. A very good find even if it’s take away only.

We both had Cortados and they were nicely produced on a Marzocco machine, although the barista filled both glasses almost to the brim. Taste was quite smooth with a hint of sour notes. The place is cute with lots of seating on two levels.

The coffee was very good once we found where Blue Bottle was. The Beanhunter directions were 183m out. Once you enter the main entrance by escalator you keep walking straight ahead till you can see the big sign for Blue Bottle on the window one level up. We arrived at 7pm and coffee was still being made. We ordered macchiatos which are the equivalent of Australian piccolos. Our friends had an espresso and a hand made lemonade

Popped in for breakfast we were surprised at how spacious it was inside. Ordering was easy and range was excellent. We ordered piccolos and quickly received half full glass cups promoting Vittoria coffee. The coffee looked good, had a nice texture but could have been a little stronger. My accompanying banana bread with ricotta, honey and strawberries was delicious. We’re looking forward to our next visit.

Took two tries to get in on a Saturday morning but it was worth it. Three of us tried Daddy’s Girl blend which we all agreed was excellent. Our fourth tried the Columbian blend which tasted as per the tasting notes, macerated strawberries was the defining taste. Not to my taste after having a sip, but our fourth said it went well with her chocolate slice.

Have tried the coffee twice in recent months and was disappointed. Not sure if they are still using Lonsdale Roasters but the coffees were warm at best and left no lasting taste memories. Food seems to have lost its edge too and we left feeling that it’s no longer worth the visit.

Another year has passed and I now regularly drink piccolos at Edgar’s. Coffees are usually nicely presented with temperature often also spot on, although occasionally only warm. Being able to get a coffee all day and into the evening is a bonus.

It’s three years since my last review and during this time I’ve been a regular visitor and consumer of piccolos. During the week coffees are usually very well prepared and are a delight to drink. Weekend visits can be hit and miss with coffees prepared by a variety of staff resulting in coffees ranging from warm to hot and from very strong to spot on.

My partner and I ordered piccolos and they were quickly prepared and served in ceramic cups. Cups were hot but coffee temp was spot on, around 65 degrees. Taste was smooth and quickly condumed.

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.

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.

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.
