Popey reviewed Finn & Co Cafe
Coffees were good and the ambiance was pleasant with the cafe full of customers on a cool morning. The menu had some interesting selections and the younger members of our party enjoyed the”Santa’s Little Helper Shake” which was incredible. Service was very efficient.
Popey reviewed Il Postinos
As the name would imply, I’ll Postino is in the old Post Office and the ambiance was great with a good crowd of customers present. Coffees were good with a strong , somewhat bitter taste but the milk in our flat whites was not as creamy as I like. Service was fast and efficient.
Popey reviewed Lane Cove National Park Cafe
The only downside is having to pay to enter the National Park. Other than that the coffee is delicious and beautifully served in mugs on a wooden paddle (very interesting). Being in the park the ambiance is outstanding with greenery abounding and plenty of fresh air. The wait staff were cheerful and efficient.
Popey reviewed Rolling Penny
Most importantly the coffees were good. The flavour was mellow but with a nice lingering mouthfeel. The ambiance was great and really suited a funky suburb like Newtown. Service was efficient and they asked a single customer to move to make space for our party.
Popey reviewed The Attic Fremantle
The flavour of the coffees was good and our flat whites were creamy with the well shaped milk integrated into the shot. We had a nice serving of fruit toast which did not appear on the menu but was available when we asked. The ambiance is quite funky and there is a small pavement sitting area which we used. Service was fast and efficient despite a steady stream of customers.
Popey reviewed Chalky's Espresso Bar
A good situation near the Roundhouse albeit a little stark. Our coffees were a little sweeter than normal but still pleasant. Disappointingly our flat whites came in paper cups as they were closing for the day shortly. Service was fast and efficient and water was available.
Popey reviewed Le Cafe qui Parle
I asked for a cafe au lait and what I got was very like a flat white while my travelling companion asked for a cappuccino which was predictably frothy as is the French style. The €11 breakfast was fantastic and worth every euro cent. Service was fast, cheerful and efficient. Well worth a visit.
We were in Paris so the ambiance had to be good. There was constant action on the footpath and roads outside with many people walking by, probably to work. The coffees looked different from what we are used to but the flavour was very good as was the egg on avocado toast and the pancakes. Fun to be here.
Popey reviewed The Runaway Spoon
Coffees were very pleasant with excellent structure and a good taste. The milk was welled shaped and the result was quite creamy. Ambiance was good with a comfortable feel even though there was a reasonable crowd of locals enjoying their coffees. Service was efficient.
Popey reviewed George St Loft
Coffees were creamy with a touch of bitterness which we like. Temperature was slightly cool but very acceptable. Our scones were excellent being crisp on the outside and fluffy in the middle. Ambiance was good with a full house and quite a buzz on a Friday morning. Service was cheerful and efficient.
Popey reviewed Long Arm Farm Cafe & Produce
Great ambiance. Coffees were smooth and mellow with a mild flavour. We had excellent scones with black cherry and plum jam but the cream unfortunately was not to the same standard. Service was fast, efficient and cheerful. Worth a visit.
Coffee was great. Perfect texture and temperature leading to a good lingering mouthfeel. Service was outstanding and was cheerful and friendly. As an example our melting moment biscuits were served on a slate with a drizzle of strawberry syrup and accompanied by a strawberry and two blueberries sprinkled with icing sugar. Good ambiance as well.
Popey reviewed Crema on Lords
Crema is small and funky with very little seating but the coffees are excellent. Flavour was interesting and the texture of the milk was perfect. All served at just the right temperature. The staff were all young and enthusiastic so the service was good too. It was nice to see them engaging in banter with all the customers. Definitely worth a visit.
Most importantly the coffee was excellent. Flavour was smooth and mellow but retained the touch of bitterness we like and lingered in the mouth for some time. The ambiance was modern and funky in this quite small establishment and it was busy with constant comings and goings. Service was not fast but this was because the barista did everything correctly eg shaping the milk separately for each of our flat whites.
Popey reviewed Soul Food Design Depot & Gallery
Great modern ambiance with some interesting food delicacies for sale. Great service, cheerful and friendly. Good coffee with a nice mellow flavour and a pleasant lingering aftertaste. Milk in our flat whites could have been creamier which would have led to a higher score.
Popey reviewed The Silly Goat
On a Monday morning the place was packed and for good reason. Our coffees were great with a smooth,mellow flavour and a creamy finish on our flat whites. As well it was served at just the right temperature. No scones unfortunately but perfection is always hard to achieve. Ambiance was great and service very good as well. Definitely worth a visit.
Popey reviewed Maggie's Rendezvous
This cafe is also a bric-a-brac shop with an eclectic selection of goods for sale. Coffees were flavoursome with a nice lingering aftertaste. The milk was well shaped and integrated into the double shot for a creamy texture. Scones were fresh and tasty but a little doughy. Service was cheerful and efficient.
Popey reviewed Emily's Bistro
Emily’s Bistro is situated in a sensational retro building (wooden floors, pressed metal ceilings, old fittings etc.). Clearly the building used to be a country town general store which sold everything. Coffees were full flavoured but the milk was a little thin in our flat whites. On the other hand our scones were excellent and service was fast, efficient and cheerful.
Popey reviewed Sempre Italian Market And Cafe
Coffees were better than the previous reviews had indicated. The flavour was smooth and lasted in the mouth and the texture was quite creamy. Ambiance is suburban cafe so not particularly outstanding but service was efficient and friendly. Worth a visit.
