Decent but not remarkable espresso and flat white and the breakfast was good but also nothing to write home about. Go for the bakery items and grab a takeaway coffee.

A decent looking shop, good latte with good amount of froth - could have been a bit hotter but not too big a deal, have only had the chance for one visit but I will be back!

Mug of flat white very pleasant on this very wet morning. Busy place with good vibes.

Had a flat white that was truly forgettable. I was very surprised considering the hype but the coffee reminded me of McDonalds coffee and there was no milk layering at all. I also had a baguette that was too oily and greasy.

The Ritual Coffee beans (from Tasmania) definitely work better without milk; my long black had immediate fruitiness and a smooth finish. I had a latte (strong) too, but the flavour didn’t really come through.
mrfrisbee & AFL4act are right, the food is fantastic!

Baked goods here are excellent (particularly the sourdough loaves). Have had two coffee stops here and was underwhelmed both times. Last flat white was weak and generally insipid. I’d recommend getting your baked treats here and then trekking the 25m down the street to Lonsdale 23 to get your coffee.

Within an in-house bakery & food options, Autolyse tries to cover a substantial area of culinary options. We’re pleased to report coffee is worth a visit also. Cappuccino perhaps carries an excessive load of choc, but is broad-shouldered enough to cope. As always, an extra point for in-house bakery items!

    LSR has really matured into the best of Canberra coffee. Not so new and cool anymore, it’s in it’s brilliant groove and just consistently delivering great coffee.

    One of the most bizarre service experiences I’ve had. Not bad, not good, just weird. But the coffee was quite good, though a bit large; it seems takeaways aren’t really their thing despite having takeaway cups piled on the coffee machine.
