Lynda you need to try this place again and you would see they are one of the best in the suburbs on the north side. Jess the barista is a beautiful girl and extremely good at her job not to mention coffee alone. I have been in the cafe when its both busy and quiet and jess has made excellent quality coffee both times. I think you are basing your misfortune on the fact that the previous barista was shit to say the least but you definately need to give them a second chance. You will be lucky to wait 3mins for a coffee now let alone 15mins. Why go to rhino when the best one is already open!!
Simon and I were business partners in this business and I have recently bought him out. Thank you for your recent review of the shop. Sadly you were 100% correct in your views on the barista working there. I have recently dismissed her and hired a new barista who I have known for a long time. You will find that her coffee quality and speed is excellent. Please give the shop another chance and I can guarantee you will not be disappointed. The coffee is now in my opinion on par or better than when Simon was working there. My phone No is 0420906305 and my name is Peter Carr. I am more than happy to discuss any aspect of the shop with you at any time. It just goes to show what a poor hiring decision can do. On a positive note though I have acted very quickly and the barista now in place is of a very high quality and the coffee is I believe the best on the Northside.
My goodness. Simon is a smart man. Heard today that he’s sold this business to someone else. Rhino espresso is soon to open up the road. This combined with the apparent lack of any coffee making talent by the new operator (judging by the shocking coffee I’m now enduring after waiting 15 minutes in an empty cafe for) should ensure this one won’t be around much longer. Shame as Genovese is a Lovely coffee.
Excellent new corner cafe. Friendly and relaxed owners. Long black was tasty and smooth. Nice food options and outdoor seating.
