“Barista?? What barista!!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012 via mobile

It started off so well, to see an independent coffee shop which was quite busy. Thought the prices were extremely reasonable. The sandwich wasn't the best, but decent for the price. Now, being called the baristas, I expected an awesome coffee but couldn't be any more wrong. Being an ex barista myself, the coffee was burnt, it was far too hot! The milk was definitely beyond 65'C and this ruins the flavour. The milk was not a smooth texture either. This is a place that charges for barista training. I'd hate to be the one paying for that. Overall it was still a pleasant visit.

“Good coffee at a good price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012

This cafe has a quiet friendly atmosphere, the staff are always friendly, and bring your drinks to you. There is good wifi connection for free, and the coffee is very tasty.
