Two good things with this very busy coffee place; it’s open at 7am, and they roast coffee.
However, not much point roasting your own if your going to burn the milk.
There is a spacious open kitchen feel to this venue with glass folding back down one whole side of the cafe, over a bar cafe style counter with stools outside and inside. There are some more intimate tables inside and a sea of stools and some small tables out in the sun.
The service is snappy, but the milk is burnt.
Like I say, this one is very popular, with many office workers and civic walkers dropping in.
The cakes look pretty good, but as usual, too expensive.
Somewhere behind the palate shortening singed milk is an open woody flavour of fresh roast.
Which might have been good.
