“Just average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013 via mobile

After reading lots of hype about this place we thought we'd give it a shot. We had the Guatemala beans, the long black simply did not hold its crema which was almost non existent by the time it got to us, and then our 2nd coffee, took another few minutes to arrive. Not for us, and there re better options in the area.

“Wow”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

Fabulous place for coffee, breakfast and lunch in Marrickville. The pork belly sandwich is to die for! I rarely eat anything else at lunch it is so good. I'm not a coffee drinker, but my wife is and we buy their coffee beans for our house, our rentable apartment and have introduced 2 local cafes to it as well.
The interior design is absolutely spot on.
We also visit the Mosman branch, which was the original, as well. x

“Good coffee”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013 via mobile

On several occasions family members have chosen this place for breakfast when we are in Sydney. The coffee is consistently good and family members rate their chocolate milkshakes very highly. Do not find the food anything special but it is fresh and tasty and a little over priced on some items. There is both indoor and outdoor seating. Though the outdoor seating is really in a cement lane at the side of the shop, or on the front pavement.
Have never experienced a problem with the service. It has always been friendly and efficient.

“Great coffee !”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013 via mobile

This is our go-to brekky place. The wait isn't too long if you get there before 10am which is the norm for Sydney cafes.

We've never had a bad coffee here. Tried the AA Indian blend this morning with a smoky chocolate flavour on the finish. Perfect.

The organic poached eggs on sourdough are always a winner although now that I've cut out bread I asked for scrambled eggs, only to be told they only make poached eggs. Why oh why Double Roasters? There's no way you can eat poached eggs without bread to sweep up the runny yolk. So I resorted for the fruit and yogurt bowl which was simple and nice but didn't quite hit the spot since I was looking forward to eggs.

Hopefully they'll update their menu. Still going back for their fantastic coffee :)

“Service non-existant!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

"Hi guys! I'll be with you in a minute"...sat ourselves down after 3 minutes. Dressed in bright red. Promptly ignored for the next 5 minutes, table next to us attended to, cleaned...and still we were ignored. So we left. Shame as we had been here previously and were looking forward to a repeat. Yes well. No thanks. Never again.
