Consistently the best tasting coffee i’ve experienced inside and outside Aussie since ever. I pretty much go here every working day and only on the rare occasion the coffee hasn’t been up to it’s high standards. in fact the only reason I look forward to work and mondays is going for my regular flat white with the same bunch of addicted colleagues.

Their ‘secret’ is every standard coffee is a doppio ristretto, which accounts for the great flavour, richness and lack of bitterness. And of course the ever changing beans of the day roasted on the premises. after asking how they pour, I now make my flat whites at home the same way, with their beans. I’m getting almost as good results.

The staff are pretty good. Not quite as friendly as my 2nd fave joint Tonic. But we always enjoy a smile from the Coffee Angel and the cute gal with the cat tat.

Yeah they do the spoons thing ala Melbourne. The decorations and wall art are interesting and ever changing. Yeah there’s the occasional hippy and lycraded cyclist. And no bogans. Coffee’s too good too care about all that.

Finally, the new umbrellas are great outside, but now I can rarely get an outdoor gig in this beautiful weather. I want the exposed hot sun back so I can claim my table again and wear my hat. :ppp

    Although the coffee isn’t the best in Canberra, it isn’t too bad, the food is delicious and not too overpriced especially when compared with other cafe’s in the same area. I work nearby and I’m a regular customer for lunch. Their soup of the day my favo…

    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.

    27 minutes according to the docket! She made 5 coffees in that time. My latte was over extracted and the milk was burnt. Not quite the worst coffee I’ve had in Canberra, but certainly the longest wait.
