  • Workshop Espresso
    Cafes    Sydney, NSW

    The sustainable organic coffee is only one reason to come to this fantastic joint! I cant emphasize enough how consistent the coffee here is. To top that, the standard blend is a great city blend and it seems to meet all tastes.

    I think that the baristas here are some of the best in Sydney and possibly the country. The volume of coffee turned around is amazing.

    The food is also great. The smash sandwiches are great. The jam doughnuts are super tasty.

    The staff are super friendly and look to be extremely hard working and efficient.

    I love this place.

    My only criticism of this place is that they do not have pay-pass. I do not understand why a business like this does not get such a convenient technology in place. I hate change and I choose other coffee shops in the area over workshop often because I do not have any cash. EFTPOS has been around for many many years and I urge the owners to get with the 21st century and get EFTPOS capacity (ok that is generous, the 20th century is more true).

  • Darlinghurst X-Ray
    Specialist Medical Services    Darlinghurst, NSW

    I arrived here expecting to wait for hours. I had barely gotten into my magazine and I was being seen to.

    The bulkbilling service was great. I was worried I would spend an arm and a leg on my broken bones (pun intended) but it didnt end up costing me anything out of pocket.

  • Target
    Department Stores    North Ryde, NSW

    I have rediscovered Target! After not visiting for many years I have begun visiting the Target store in Macquire centre as I like to park my car just outside in the car park and then walk through to get to the gym. I find every week I can't help but browse a bit, try on something and more often than not buy a few things! There are always excellent sales and the range is quite comprehensive. I am also impressed by there weeknight hours, they are open much later than I would expect. It is a good time to visit! It is not particularly crowded which means you get great service.

    I tried this cafe for coffee after reading about from a very reputable website regarding good coffee. I try good coffee where ever I go, but to date, this was the very best. These guys know what they're doing. Their aim is clearly to make excellent coffee, and they do it very very well. I'd absolutely recommend this cafe.

    Moderate sized store. Good range.

      I visited on Tuesday night to buy my mum a Mandolin for Christmas. I went to the kitchen section and asked a sales staff to help me. They had no idea what a Mandolin was despite my descriptions. At my suggestion they went to find someone else who could help me. However the next person (who was also working in the kitchen section) also had no idea what a mandolin was? I happened to see an empty box which should have contained a mandolin. I pointed it out. The second attendant took the box and went searching for others? They looked very confused? walked around aimlessly for about 5 minutes before I left. Very disappointing!! I wish I could reduce the star rating I gave this store 4 months ago!!
