The new re-vamped shop looks a treat. The pies, tarts and breads are still as tasty as ever. Service is still efficient and prices are very reasonable.
Now for the negatives. 1. Plastic cups made to look like water glasses are tacky.
2. Coffee is always watery and the milk is always bubbly and overly foamy.

Dobinsons is great for a cheap lunch and a milk shake or a big breakfast hangover brunch. This place has potential.

Somehow managed to make my long black look as though it had been topped with burnt microwaved milk—nonetheless it was a reasonable impression of what coffee should taste like, though nothing to write home about.

The lemon tart was like a good comedian—it left me wanting more. The coffee is nothing special, though, and it usually arrives in a chipped and cracked mug. Where’s the love in that?

    A couple of months ago I ordered a piccolo and received a lukewarm bitter glass of milk. Very disappointed.

    For coffee alone this would get 4.5/5 stars. Lovely lively airy vibe with indoor and outdoor greenhouse style design. Staff cheerful and efficient. Several bean types to be matched to your coffee of choice. Flat white using a bean with berry notes was e…

    Well, a double macchiato was really good. If you’re passing by and need a coffee, there’s no reason not to stop by here. Obviously the location means that its not somewhere I’d stop for an hour to read or anything, but the coffee is good all the same.
