Latte was too hot but otherwise OK

Passable coffee. Over-extracted shot of espresso lead to an unwanted bitterness, and milk was done too hot to ~75ºC.

Coffee isn’t really their strong point: the amazing pastries (HIGHLY RECOMMENDED) and other baked goods is where they shine. Definitely go here for the bakery. The coffee? Not so much.

They may have the tastiest pastries in the Inner North but their espresso making skills are sorely lacking. Every so often I try a long black from here and every time I’m disappointed. Burnt coffee not so much fun.

    The long black here is middling to good. A little weak maybe. The breakfasts are excellent so the combination of food and coffee make this a worthwhile option. But if it is just coffee you are after head around the corner into Lonsdale St.

    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!

    Very nice smooth espresso, at times interesting after tastes and flavours but still good nonetheless! <3

    It’s a public holiday and the joint is pumping! The crowds suggest this is the only place open with a decent brew. They’re probably right.
    The service was pretty efficient considering the number of people, and it was definitely worth the wait.

    Tranquilo would have to do something special to hold its own just cross the road from one of Canberra’s most popular cafés. Serving Campos beans was a good start, but unfortunately they weren’t handled so well – my macchiato came out too hot and rather …
