Coffee in Dunlop/Charnwood area?

By dazzab - 2 January 2011 35

Anyone have any favourite places to hang out and have a cuppa in Charnwood area?

Only place I’ve been able to find is McDonald’s and I’ve decided one of my new year’s resolutions will be not to buy anything from them this year in protest of the horrendous service. They don’t seen to care about anything other than their drive through and customers can wait 15mins before being served if there’s more than two orders at once. Having done that job as a youngster myself, albeit in the US, I just stand there in awe as they ignore customers.

So, do I have to plan my trips to Civic now or is there a place I haven’t thought of that would actually like to sell me their coffee rather than ignore me?

Maybe Jamison or Kippax?

What’s Your opinion?

Would you like fries with your whine?

KFC, oh no – anything else to go with it or just a big KFC?

@wildturkeycanoe

Maybe you should read the OP again. She mentions Kippax and Jamison

Ladyofthelake – the OP was asking about west Belco, if they’d wanted to go as far as Jamison, might as well go to Westfield..Duh!
Chop71 – that block next to Maccas is going to be a KFC, not helping to improve the area much is it?

There’s also a small place at the Holt shops that does coffee, I think they’re only open during the week though

Thanks. Hadn’t noticed the Coffee Bean in Florey and I do stop there from time to time as I like the IGA there. One of the few places that stocks Red Eye (prefer it over Red Bull) and the service is top notch with friendly staff.

Correction: Facet junior who lives in lower west Charnwood has advised that the beverage of choice is International Roast with a slug of Jim Beam.
I also have a good recipe for tea.

“McDonald’s . . . I’ve decided one of my new year’s resolutions will be not to buy anything from them this year in protest of the horrendous service.”

In protest at their service? Why not their alleged “food”? When I returned to fitness training and bodybuilding I blackbanned Maccas and my 2009 new year resolution still hasn’t been broken.

there is a Coffee Guru at the Jamison Centre… mmm coffee!

One heaped spoonful of Moccona Classic Medium Roast coffee, Carnation Light and Creamy (97% less fat) evaporated milk and hot water (sugar or sweetener to taste).
If you complain about the service then you have a fool for a customer.

As Dunlop grows and grows without local shops, You would expect Charnwood shopping centre to improve significantly. Maybe this would explain the new shop fit outs, improved security cameras and what are they building on the block next to Maccas? (I always thought that would be good for a coffee shop)

-1 to the place at the bottom of Kippax. I’ve always found the service to be pretty poor. Not a particularly appealling setting either.

Jammo has some decent coffee shops.

Kippax has a couple of coffee shops, both make good coffee. Not the best atmosphere though. Both are down near the chemist shop.

The Coffee Bean at Florey shops…..beautiful cuppa and really nice couches and newspapers and magazines to just take time out..

Also the food is very nice with homemade cakes….

It is opposite Dominos pizza in the new building.

The place at the bottom of Kippax does good coffee, and their service is good too. And if you shop at woolies, the one at Kippax has a much better range of products, but probably only 2 check-out chicks serving.
