    The coffee was good (not the long black tho, super acidic) but the pastries were nothing special. Small place, not so nice service.

    Double ristretto is wonderful, and a cake of course, try the friands or the portuguese custard tarts

    Certainly one of the best artisans north of Ox St. The £1 off for answering a survey has already expired though.

    The coffee was good. They don't serve filter coffee and the seating area is very limited.

    They sometimes have Czech coffee from Doubleshot as a guest blend. Such a nice surprise!

    Overrated! Coffee was bland & not at the right temperature (despite the fact of me requesting that the coffee is hot if they use a ceramic cup). Amount was also small but about 50p more expensive!

    If god exists, and I'm not so sure he does, BUT... If he does... He'll almost certainly start every day with a coffee and a slice of toasted banana bread from here.

    Everything here tastes like Sydney. And in coffee terms, that's about as good as you can get.
