It’s a reasonable coffee, maybe they have made an effort lately (my positive review has nothing to do with the name)

Picked up a pretty well-made macchiato here, along with some grilled fish for lunch. Both were pleasing enough to consume, but nothing exceptional.

Friendly service. Acceptable flat white.

Coffee is exclusively from http://www.aromacoffee.com.au.

Long black was very slightly burnt but had a reasonably good colour and consistency of crema and the temperature was fine.

My partner described her Soy flat white ($2.80 reg) as ‘acceptable’.

We also ate the eggs benedict on white muffin with spinach, which was reasonable but not outstanding. The rest of the food menu appears to be standard Sydney cafe fare.

    Great little corner cafe with that funky Surry Hills vibe. My 3/4 double shot latte tasted great, full flavoured and caramely, but the foam contained several disconcertingly large bubbles.

    Working here after 3:30pm on a weekday was a good option, sin…

    Great spot. First up I had a lovely flat white, using beans from Seven Seeds in Melbourne. Next I had a filter brew. Delicious, with Sample roasted beans, these from Costs Rica. If only I worked nearby, then I’d try make it my regular.

    If you’re even a semi-regular here, Phil will know your name and coffee and you’ll feel welcome whenever you’re there. I worked up the street from Koko for a while and after a couple of weeks I ordered my morning coffee by nodding and saying good mornin…

    Lovely smooth coffee slightly expensive for a small but no bitterness, not scalding pretty much perfect coffee. The yoghurt with berries was awesome and only $5.50 for a reasonable serve. I highly recommend this cafe.
