Nice little place with ambience and keen to please service. I got the extra froth and chocolate on my cappuccino that I’d asked for :) Coffee good temperature although a little strong for my taste. A little pricey for brekkie so just got a savoury muffin to keep us going although very filling!

The business must have changed - it’s called Ten Hands cafe at that address now and I tried it the other day. Unfortunately I wasn’t feeling like coffee so had a tea - but I can say the place looks great, has excellent service, and the food looked awesome. I’ll try to get back to review it from a coffee perspective before we leave the area, but it’s quite a shining light of coffee shops from my limited UK experience so far :)

Excellent service from when you walk in the door. Definitely dog friendly ... you can tell not just from the water bowls outside at the tables but also by the name of the coffee blends :) Plenty of comfy seating inside ... possibly downstairs too. A good range of brekkie items to choose from. The coffee I tried was the Husky.. it was a great blend and very smooth and a little sweet so I didn’t need as much sugar as usual. I would have preferred more froth on my cappuccino - otherwise excellent.

Great spot to stop for coffee and food :) We’ve been here 3 times so far this trip and I’ve never been disappointed. The coffee is consistently good- right temp / texture / strength. If it was in a smaller cup it would be almost perfect for me :) There is inside and outside seating and a kids playground just across from it ... and dog friendly outside.

Excellent service and great location. Always seem to have a good value lunch special. They close between lunch and dinner which is a shame for me as Im often looking for afternoon coffee stop. The coffee is really good too - got the extra froth and chocolate I asked for ... and with a smile :)

Great place for brekkie on a Sunday and obviously very popular for coffee with lots of takeaways walking out the door too. Excellent service and great food. Coffee was very good - more froth on my cappuccino would have made it excellent:)

What an oasis this place is! Beautiful ambience ... even though the day we picked to visit was overcast and cool. We had to wait quite a while for our breakfast and coffee but it all tasted good.... and with the lovely view we didn’t mind the wait ...and the food was plentiful!

Locally recommended which is great ... and it was! We had a huge bacon and egg roll which was plenty for two. There’s some seating undercover alongside in the alley and some wall artwork to add to the ambience. Friendly prompt service. Coffee served in bigger cup than I prefer and a little bitter but still really good texture and temperature. Loved that they had a sugar pot with a spoon of its own!

A local recommended this place and reviews confirmed it was worth a try. However I often find my expectations are too high and I get disappointed ... but not this time!! Excellent service, great food, and must importantly - the coffee was perfect:)
RachelBarnes8213 reviewed Rivermark Cafe
What a beautiful setting out the back overlooking the river. We were lucky to get a good table as most were already reserved. Obviously a popular place for locals which is always encouraging:) A little pricey but food great - and so is the Merlo coffee :)
RachelBarnes8213 reviewed Michel's
I used to come to this Michel’s a couple of years ago and the coffee was hit and miss, as was the service. Plus it was a very basic setting so you didn’t feel like lingering. Now it’s a different story here! Excellent service, almost perfect coffee made to my specific order, the menu is more like a normal cafe and the seating and layout is SO much better. Did I say how great the coffee was!? This is my 4th visit in a week - consistently excellent:)

The star wars figure out the front put me off the first drive past but checked online reviews and came back. So glad we did as the coffee was just the way I like it and the service and food were all excellent...with comfy seats too :)

Great ambience and lovely staff. Food well presented and tasty. Just a shame about the coffee :(. Perhaps there was an inexperienced Barista in early this Sunday morning but I ordered my usual small cappuccino with lots and lots of froth and chocolate... I did get lots of chocolate but it was in too of a week flat white. Disappointed:(
RachelBarnes8213 reviewed Legall Patisserie Cafe
Nice little place with lots of good looking pastries! Coffee was better than expected ... my cappuccino had good froth, lots of chocolate as I had ordered and was a good temperature and texture. A little strong / bitter but that’s usual for my taste with fish river roasters.
RachelBarnes8213 reviewed Country Coffee
Height of a summers day and we stumbled on this oasis :) Lovely and cool inside with lots of comfy seating. The friendliest service ever - excellent potion on the breakfast we ordered .. plenty for 2 of us. And importantly the coffee was just as I ordered - excellent!
RachelBarnes8213 reviewed Boulangerie
Hole in the wall coffee shop and French bakery on the industrial fringe. Stopped here on our way to the dog park as there was outside grasses seating areas and it looked pleasant considering the industrial area. Service was excellent and very French :) Food fresh and tasty. Coffee was really tasty too!
RachelBarnes8213 reviewed ShotLab Espresso
Found a 1hr park out the front which is great! Only a small cafe but good food options and quick service. Plenty of plants out front in seating area so didn’t feel bad on the pavement. Coffee tasted good but only had a skim on top .. not any froth :(
