I'd read the reviews and was determined to check it out myself. It didn't disappoint! Yes, they served sparkling water as you waited. Yes, the coffee/cake was great.

I dithered a bit over my choice of sweet, aware of the queue behind me. The gentleman behind the counter couldn't have been more patient - didn't once get hurried!! amazing. I chose the almond croissant - gorgeous!!! All the servers were abs wonderful and friendly.

It was a cold day so I chose to stay inside the cafe, using the window sill as my "table" to place my coffee/cake, and browse the newspaper (selection of dailies provided). I will return.

Non stop flow of customers on Wednesday morning at 10am. Mostly business people.

Coffee above average, it's superiority is customer service, speed and engagement thus create a good vibe scene. No seatings even for dining in. Nice croissants.

Greeted and farewelled by very friendly and efficient staff, ordering a coffee here is easy. There's one size, a choice of black or white (and choice of roasts). It's a small store, and the entrance is off a laneway and very easy to miss. But follow the people clutching cups and you'll find it. The coffee was pleasant, a good temperature, but not the most complex in flavour. None the less if in the area, it's a nice place to stop in for a brew.

Interesting coffee place. Some sweets offered but otherwise, this is a standing room only shop. There is only black or white coffee sold. Worth a try to see what the hype is about?

Being a coffee crazy person (I can have ten a day if the coffee is good enough) I thought I would sample what this hyped up cafe had to offer. So after standing in line 20 minutes I got to the front and ordered 2 short blacks (1 Columbian and 1 Patricia blend). Ten minutes later the coffee is made and piping hot. This is when I go to taste both and cringe at the sheer bitterness of the brew. Not the worst I had but nearly there.
