Been wanting to try this place but always closed when I am around. However today was the day. I can understand why has good reviews as the coffee was very good. I also tried the brekky role as they spell it and it was very enjoyable. If in Newport it's worth a visit.

Coffee is inconsistent according to who's making. Most days coffee is ok but only 1 day in a week a barista made spot on. Kitchen is a joke. I ordered eggs on toast and waited 15 minutes and all that came out of the kitchen before was 3 bacon and egg rolls. The toast was not toast and eggs were dry and I could do better at home and I could not finish.

My coffee today was so bad that I left it! Absolutely shocking that people who run coffee shops clearly have no care. Surely you know this will hurt your business. They use Pablo and rusty coffee beans so no excuses for such a joke if a coffee

When they first opened they tried hard but frankly it's gone down hill quickly. My coffee today was awful and thus is due to them not using a barista. The owner is away and of course has taught a waitress how to make coffee. However does she really know what she's doing? Obviously not as my coffee was really bad.Sometimes in the past the coffee has been average but this is bad enough for me to start going elsewhere.

The thing that stands out about this coffee shop is the attitude to customers. This is the first time I've ever been blown away by service before.They have thought about so much. Would like like complimentary sparkling or normal water, wow. They pay attention and even came back to fill my half empty glass. The coffee was good and the bacon and egg roll was ok too.Crows nest simply has too many coffee shops competing for business, however these are an amazing addition as have raised the standards for the area. I can understand why they are busy as I am sure they must get a strong referral business.

laughed at the name but thought they were worth a go as do Danes coffee. well we used here most mornings as the coffee was made reasonably well but more importantly the staff were very friendly. this made us come back everyday while on holiday as we were made welcome and the atmosphere was good

Dear customer, we apologise that you had an unpleasant experience. We had the air-conditioner on coz it's a hot day, and it would have been our pleasure to adjust it colder for you. Hope to see you again. Thank you.

Known in the local area for the coffee. So of course I checked it out and hey it’s busy. The coffee was good but if I’m honest I go back for food. It’s reasonably priced for serving size. Overall my favourite at the moment fro breakfast. Service can be up and down depending on who serves you.

Gave this place two chances to show my why they were so busy. Think it comes down to a lack of competition inside. Average service, food was awful and both times our coffee was ok. I tried to like them but will now not go back. Hey their busy so that’s ok.

Used to be three beans and now I will call it the coffee shop with no name. Used Pablo & rustys beans but my coffee was at best awful. Your typical cafe with staff that have no clue or care on how to make a good coffee. Go to the competition less than 10 metres away.
