Firstly, awful service. Dismissive demeanour, clearly annoyed that we interrupted the conversation to order coffee. Get a grip. Secondly, the milk was way way way way too hot. It took 10 minutes in Melbourne winter to cool to the right temperature to drink. Once cooled, it was actually a fantastic coffee, hence my 7/10 (which could’ve easily been 9/10). Don’t waste your time - Melbourne has better purveyors of beans and milk to bother with this joint.

Overall, not great. Disappointing coffee - milky as shit. We waited about 25 minutes from being seated to getting a coffee. It's just too long. Nice outdoor seating zone rescued this fairly poor experience. The snacks (muffins, lemon meringue mini tart etc. looked amazing, but weren't on the food list. I see what they're trying to do, but it's just haven't executed. Does that make me an uppity Sydney wanker? Yes. Yes it does.

The previous reviews are old. Perhaps they were fair at the time, but I think this cafe needs a second look. They have great equipment, good baristas and a happy attitude. Most importantly, they do good coffee. Very good coffee. Quick and courteous team. Honestly, I don't know what else you'd want from a cafe.

A sight for caffeine addicts everywhere. Reminds me of something I've been to in Wahroonga, NSW. Lots of coffee options, well presented. We ordered double shot lattes and it was still a little subtle for my taste. I guess after triple shot naked at Streamer Espresso, Osaka everything seems weak. A nice find :)

Returned with some friends. I've revised my opinion for two reasons: 1. The coffee was great, but not astonishing this time. Extremely good, but not the messiah brew offset visit. 2. It's so bright! Definitely not mood-lit. I wouldn't take a date there for fear of (me) being ugly under the lights. Dimmers please! On balance, I still say this is the best coffee shop in the world. However, even the best cannot be perfect.
