Add a review for this cafe

My mate pretended to have lost a game of air hockey due to the lack of a caffeine fix beforehand. To prove the ridiculousness of this notion, I played along and reluctantly walked the 200 metres or so required to get to this coffee shop. In that timespan I had ample time to read up on the cafe on this app, particularly as the streets were semi-closed due to a fire in a nearby building.
By nature, I am sceptical of good reviews and prefer to form my own opinion. Yet, my puny mind was blown away due to a number of factors: the pretty girl behind the counter, the friendliness and professionalism of the staff, and the wonderful flavour of the iced coffee (needed after the exhausting and body heat raising exploitations on the air hockey pitch).
Needless to say, the rematch of the game turned into a shambles for my mate and I had an easy 9-0 win.

    Soy Latte was nice & smooth. Sourdough toast was a little thin but had plenty of vegemite on it :)

    Good food, catered to my fussy requests- always a plus in my book. Child friendly options. Service was a little abrupt and inattentive, but most importantly a good coffee, without the cup full of foam. I would return.

    Coffee is ok, had a slightly acidic flat white. It’s good for people watching in the city but gets hectic during the busier hours.

    Desperation high, expectations were low. Was pleasantly surprised when my strong flat white was both strong and drinkable. Flavour was robust and smooth.
