Hipsters rejoice! The Front re-opens on Thursday

By johnboy - 8 February 2011 12

Many is the disappointed pair of horn rimmed glasses that have been pressed against the windows of The Front in Lyneham during the renovations.

We can report that the wait is over and Canberra will again be safe for hemp courier bags this Thursday.

Anarchist Duck are doing the honours.

What’s Your opinion?

But you’ll wait for ages at Roasters among the lycra brigade (earlier) and hipsters (later)! Not too sure about the coffee either.

I admit that it is not that usual warm milk that gets passed up as coffee in this town. If you like to tast coffee in your cup it is up there. I haven’t had to wait long whenever i have been there so I must have timed my visits well. Couldn’t give a s…t about hipsters or what others are wearing so no probs there.

Hipster as hell.

The males look like they’re wearing their little sister’s clothing.

I’d rejoice more if they’d learned to actually make decent coffee in the interim. Mind you, that requires decent beans in the first instance…

Their coffee has been Douwe Egbert’s Piazza D’Oro, it’s a shocker. I can’t drink The Front coffee either! I endure the ritual customer humiliation that is standing for 25 minutes at the counter at Tilleys instead … I’m curious that such an alternative venue as The Front doesn’t seem to offer a sustainable, organic coffee.

Last time I checked Tilleys had coffee that matched their woeful service. Go to Roasters in Braddon if you want a decent cup.

It’s easy to tell a hipster, they’re the ones telling everyone else how much they hate hipsters.

I’m not sure how far Canberra hipsters are behind their Melbourne brethren, but at the moment it’s all about looking like you’re on a boat.

Pleated pants (chinos or jeans) that barely reach the ankles.

Loafers, or canvas shoes.

No socks.

At least it’ll mean less of the bastards on the street or in regular establishments.
