DrMike reviewed Loaf and lounge
Really lovely coffee in a hidden away picturesque town. Pleased they’re open on Sundays too - almost nothing else was! Delicious looking cakes and bread but I was just there for the coffee which had a really nice flavour, while not quite as strong as I prefer for my flat white I really enjoyed it
DrMike reviewed Bank St + Co
Toby’s Estate coffee is usually reliable. However the young girl out front making the coffees wasn’t properly trained so she didn’t tamp the grind enough leading predictably to a watery brew. The management need to train their baristas better please!

Coffee was really nice. Not super strong if you like that but good flavor. Not much aroma though interestingly. Atmosphere was quiet, no doubt due to COVID. I’m sure it’s usually got a better vibe. The service though! Girl behind the counter looked like I was disturbing her day ordering a coffee. Cafes run on service and coffee. One is ok, but you’ll never be great without both
DrMike reviewed Alfred's Diner
Allpress coffee on the coast! Staying in the nearby Turtle Beach resort and went on the hunt for coffee. Walked past about 4 cafes with no smell of coffee, thank goodness for the Beanhunter app. Tucked away gem, staff friendly as and Allpress coffee was as good as ever.
Looks like coffee in the UK has come a long way since I was in Costa in 2013. Visiting Birmingham and came across this treasure. Lovely vibe, great coffee, and the lady behind the bar literally said “alright my lovely?” (as in ‘hello’). Love this place!
