A nice cafe in the center of the city. I've been here several times and I liked every one of them. The coffee is excellent and I too have received cappuccinos with art on top. The place is wonderful and cozy.
I didn't use to like the coffee here when it opened, but I thought I'd give it another go after hearing a couple of good reviews from friends. I was also recommended their home-made tarts. After popping back a couple of times recently, I must agree with the recommendations. I get a macchiato and they do it nicely with not too much milk or froth (though you can ask for more) and they even do awesome latte art if they are not too busy.
The tarts are divine, I am in love with the banoffee and lemon meringue tarts. They're small and just the right size for an afternoon sweetie. Service is warm and friendly, and the staff don't mind a bit of banter.
If not for trying to cut down on sweets, I'd be here all the time. Great stuff!
When this place opened it was CLEAN and the staff were HELPFUL. Now the outdoor area is dirty and run down! And the wait staff are dreadful. This is the perfect locale...SHAPE UP AND REGAIN THE ORIGINAL BUZZ AND STANDARDS.
These guys do a good job at serving fresh food and good coffee. When it first opened, I didn't really see that a restaurant/cafe could really take off there - but, it's consistently busy and surprisingly so, even on the weekends.
A convenient little takeaway coffee cart out the front for a quick grab and go coffee on the way to work.
