subtropic29 reviewed Common Grounds
Thought I would try Common Grounds again before I travelled back up the coast. Milk was too hot and the coffee was under extracted, with a subtle sour taste. Service was good. Will try again when next visiting this part of the world because they use Glee beans!
subtropic29 reviewed Cafe Cucina
Beans: Giancarlo I visited here on a busy Saturday morning travelling through Wagga. It was hectic inside the cafe however the service was prompt and efficient. A number of blends to choose from including single origin. Milk was too hot however texture wasn't to bad once it cooled. Overall considering how busy they were the coffee came out pretty quickly and I would be interested to try again when in town.

The sign at the top of the lane way caught my interest. The entry via the red phone booth further intrigued me. The dark grungy atmosphere with jazz music won me over in an instant. Great coffee had the single origin long black and my wife ordered a latte. 10 out of 10 for atmosphere and the service is good. Bean know what they are doing behind the machine. My favourite Brisbane cafe (also a bar!).

Cheers for the kind words. Glad you ventured down into our laneway basement. Come again!!

Beans: Botero It's a shame how far Vines has fallen. Six years ago it was one of the better restaurants in Grafton with great food and service. Now it's a shadow of its former self. I had a double shot espresso with cold milk. It was bitter. Service is nice but forgetful.
