No atmosphere, poor service. Very average coffee. Mediocre at best.

Psychedeli has occupied this corner of Civic forever it seems. Appropriately, they serve what I would term a slightly old-fashioned cappuccino. Excellent foam, but slightly light on for a decent caffeine hit.

Psychedeli feels like it should serve pretty good coffee. And others certainly approve. But after trying it a dozen times or more, I have to conclude that I just can’t agree. The coffee’s probably half-drinkable in the guise of a flat white or cappuccino, but for a black coffee freak it is really not at all up to scratch.

I haven’t tried their food, so this rating is just for the coffee.

I go here nearly every morning - cappuccino and a warm croissant. The coffee is always smooth and fairly aromatic. Regardless of the barista (and it’s nearly always the same person) I’ve never had a bad cup.

Great smooth, coffee and a barista that loves a chat and a joke. When not busy they also do fantastic latte art.

A bustling city café that serves a mainly office-worker crowd, but makes up for it with a beautiful leafy atrium where you can enjoy your coffee.

This morning I was served a delicious double macchiato, with perfect proportions of espresso and milk. Also had a pretty decent ham, cheese and tomato croissant. Psychedeli also have a full cooked breakfast menu if you’re after something more substantial.

    Since Remi has come under new management the food, service, and most of the coffee has improved tremendously. I recommend everyone go and try it.

    This feels like any other run of the mill office café, but I was greeted with a smile and served an entirely decent art-topped double macchiato (including a query from the barista as to how I would like it). You can do a lot worse than that.

    Office building café with an Italian-themed menu, which they pursue with gusto: the waiter went so far as to present our meals along with their description in Italian. This was ultimately confusing and didn’t make up for their over-priced (but otherwise…

    A pleasant bottom-of-the-office-block café: warm, carpeted, comfortable seating. Decent breakfast menu, but average coffee and scattered, somewhat unfriendly staff.

    I visited the Dessert Castle expecting just another dessert bar, but instead found a complete café experience, styled more like a Taiwanese desserts nightclub. Their hook is the wall lined with froyo dispensers, but they also do coffee, and they seem to…
