Always on the hunt for good coffee when travelling for business from Manly in Sydney. Found this little espresso bar and returned 3 times over the 2 days I was in Lismore. Had to eat elsewhere as food is limited but the coffee was just too good, friendly, helpful barista and locals having a yarn made it a pretty cool... More

Well, I'm totally biased in this review, as we've know Nick (owner) for a number of years - but this is the place if you want real, really good coffee. Nick sources & roasts his beans, the coffee is always outstanding - in 5 years we've never had a sub-standard one - and Nick will always discuss the fine points... More

This is only a coffee place - if you're looking for a lovely breakfast with that great coffee they serve, then you'll be disappointed. The day I went they had donuts. That's all. But the coffee is good, They are essentially an espresso bar so don't go there for food - there ain't any.

I found this place on the Bean Hunter app and it was supposed to be the best coffee in Lismore. I would definitely agree. Ordered my double shot latte and everything was perfect about it, not too much froth, great taste and just the right temperature. Throw in a nice fellow running it and a modern minimalist setting and it's... More

Great coffee and great guys making it. They have a strong passion for coffee and will strive to make yours 'perfect' EVERY time. In a town abundant with coffee options, this certainly is a favourite.

Coffee has been the passion of this young man for years and he has infected my husband who regularly buys his beans for home. There is not much Nic doesn't know about coffee and he has even given little old tea loving me a love of it. He had to move from his smaller premises to here and should probably... More

Was initially a little put off by the size of the shop, but the coffee smell got me in... It just grabs you and entices!! Really bold coffee and super fast service. Didn't look like they served food, no menus, so went elsewhere for breakfast, but really enjoyed this place for coffee.

Thank Matthew W
