Good coffee, small setting. Had some takeaway breakfast which took a long time to come out, and was fairly average, but the coffee was nice.

Coffee is a personal taste agreed as is the blend etc etc. The espresso of what they were grinding wasn't spot on - too bitter and acidic perhaps more to do with the way it was made as I've bought my own beans from Ground Control Tweed and found it difficult to pick the blend. Did have a croissant which... More

Hidden gem! Best coffee in Ballina hands down! Hard working, passionate team who consistently deliver quality coffee day after day. Super busy in the mornings which is testament to the great coffee these guys pump out. The barista's here are knowledgable, attentive and switched on... any hassles with your coffee you let them know and they genuinely care and then... More

Cool little coffee house. Nice artwork on the walls (for sale), good décor. Its a small place but doesn't feel too claustrophobic. Staff were good, service too. Food was nice also. I would definitely recommend.

Best coffee in Ballina accompanied by a great menu for breakfast and lunch. The Greek omelette and the almond croissants are fantastic

Definitely "cosy", not many tables but not busy at 10am so we didn't miss out. Had cappuccino, nice but wouldn't go as far to say best in Ballina? Nice big almond crissant to share, but also had other choices. Coffee machine very loud in such a confined space but not that annoying.
