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.

Outstanding. Mid week lunch came with a batch brew in a whiskey glasses. Smooth and sweet precursor to lunch. Then, finished with a takeaway flat white. Brilliant balance and flavours. Cool vibe, a must-visit in Melbourne.

Great tiny cafe. Perfect access to Southern Cross. Moccamaster & flat white a perfect 10.

Thank you for dropping by to our tiny cafe. We really appreciated that you enjoy our perfect plating. Entree, main and dessert to make the day wonderful.

This place was cool, but with each visit it's gone down another point. It's so sad. The coffee is now uninspiring, the snacks are flavourless and the road somehow seems louder. I really want to like it, but there's so many other places to drink that this just doesn't cut it.
An oasis near the British Museum. Cool vibe. Double shot flat white didn't need a double - single would have been better. Pass on the cookie too. Don't expect wifi either - it's turned off during the day (!?).

Gee that's bad coffee. Hot, tasteless coffee. I mean really bad. Stomach-curdling bad. Looks like nice food, but shocking coffee. Oh, and $4 for a regular flat white? For city prices, you've got to deliver more than ambience.

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.
Well worth the effort, you addicts. This is a cafe in a clothing store. Don't be fooled, there is seating inside, up the little stairs. Triple shot naked porter filter lattes were dreamy. Marks lost for no wifi (damn Japan!). It meant we had to go to Starbucks instead or coming back more than once a day.
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.

Looking for brunch on a public holiday in Seoul, we found this cracker. Styled on the 1950s, The Sand has typewriters, vintage radios and brand new 50s inspired furniture. Lavazza? Yeah, I know, but it tastes familiar. The latte and "Americano" were both fine. Probably better than fine - prepared very well. Breakfast was sensational. The chocolate mud cake was even better. I nearly ordered another coffee, so it must have been OK.
