Nice enough, but there are some nicer options around if you’re just hanging out for coffee. Italian restaurant.

Coffee is good for an after dinner drink.

Decent but otherwise unremarkable coffee. A wide range of traditional Italian dishes. More a restaurant than a café so you may have to wait a while for your food. Bonus half star because they have chinotto, my preference for chasing a lunchtime coffee.

    Hipster bookshop that also serves coffee, and turns into a wine bar on Thursday and Friday nights. My espresso was quite drinkable, but I daresay it would vary by barista.

    The newcomer to this area offers Ona coffee, well made, an array of eel-priced eats, plus a nice little fitout with plenty of seating. I’ll be back!
