Unreliable. At best, drinkable. At worst, worse.

It might take a while, but the coffee from The Gods is a cut above anywhere else on the ANU campus. Well worth a visit.

The Gods Café was always a good place to hangout for hours or sit at the back under the vines. But I was never a fan a of bringing my own coffee to my table or paying through the roof for lukewarm, tasteless chai lattes that would go cold half way through drinking it. But it is the only place in uni to get fresh juice and the cakes are yum.

I like The Gods, I really do, it’s a lovely place on the ANU campus to sit and read—while undertaking my undergraduate degree I spent many an hour doing just that. Alas it appears to have gone downhill since then. The coffee I had today was absolutely terrible. Bland, boring, and very sad.

    Coffee from Lonsdale Street Roasters has improved Emissions, however attention to detail is still lacking and coffee/food inconsistent in quality.

    Creamy bitter, but not strong blend. Whipped up fast by friendly staff. That’s what I like to see before work.

    You can definitely expect a consistent, reasonable Kaldi brand coffee from this young entrepreneur. 10:30 -11:30am is ‘happy hour’ and you get a decent discount :)
