wasn’t expecting too mach but Pleasently supprised

Hi all,

I discovered Jenny’s Kaldi Cafe (in the CPA buliding on London Circuit, that’s next to the Bendigo bank) about 6 or so months ago (I think i was on the way to or from the Civic library). Canberra can be a pretty lonley place when you’re new here and Jenny’s down to earth and really sincere and generous spirit REALLY helped me find a place where i feel comfortable and well, just a little loved :]

She’s always smiling (which in today’s world is quite an achievement i think) and more often than not always seems to go the extra mile to make you feel special, I always get a taste test of choc slice or a free slice of raisin toast. She’s just wonderful :]

Service isn’t what is used to be (well, i’ve heard it used to be good) but at Jenny’s Kaldi it is what i imagine it used to be like, such a refreshing change :]

If you’re in Civic and have some time to spare with a friend (or by yourself) and want a tea/coffee then drop in. I’m pretty sure you won’t be dissapointed!

Pleased to update - I have one in my hot little hands right now; I was concerned to go to the store after the new owner took over because I had heard TERRIBLE reviews as well.

It’s now…


Perfect temp, not burnt, and she’s lovely too. Definitely improved! :)

There’s a new Kaldi Coffee owner in my building that opened this morning. I walked in the foyer, and just couldn’t resist her free coffee offer. So I got a chai latte, sadly it doesn’t taste like chai at all in fact it tastes like off chocolate and burnt milk. Although, she did say it was her first go and if I didn’t like it, I can go back. But it’s not looking promising.

    Customer service goes a long way with me and this owner-barrister team at Oscars are real standouts.

    This hole in the wall is gorgeous and glamorous.

    If you’re lost, this place is at the doors to the Canberra centre off Ainslie Pl. Ask for a loyalty…

    The $3 cappuccino lives! Here it is well made, with lots of persistent microfoam, could have been slightly stronger. Croissant d’Or provides comestibles. Still something of a secret but at this price that won’t last.

    New owners since this was last reviewed, and apparently vastly improved. You can’t beat the prices of this tucked away gem, especially during 10am-11am happy hour where 8oz and 12oz cups are only $2.50. Expect a line if you go at this time, but they’re …
