“Sub-Par”
Reviewed 24 May 2014

While the venue, menu and coffee looks good, the quality you receive here is sub-standard. The service left a lot to be desired. They also need to hire a barista who knows what they are doing and at a satisfactory rate. We ordered two flat whites and while there was hardly anyone in line, we waited a painfully long time. I have worked in hospitality and know that coffees take less than two minutes to make so who knows what he was doing the whole time.

The coffee was bitter and tasted terrible and the milk was boiled - an absolute pet hate of mine. If you can't tell when the milk is ready, get a thermometer! And while the muffins looked nice, the fact that they were sitting out in the open all day was a big turn off. Go elsewhere.
