read great reviews bout this place in the mayfair magazine, when there twice. both times asked for a long black in the bigger cup, half filled. one of the staff decided that that is not what i wanted, instead gave me a smaller cup, filled to the bream. Go figure that!. Didn't make a fuss.
Next time asked for the same and again got even a worse thing. Extremely hot brown water was served so i got up and nicely asked them to re do it. Guy that makes a coffee, scruffy, unkept, long hair, eastern european peasant attitude, started arguing with me loudly so half of the place looked at me. to make that matter worse three other staff behind the counter got involved in the conversation telling me i should be having a plunger coffee. i have been having this sort of coffee for years, and i try to explain how it is usually made. no they or have PhD in it, and who the f* am i? i made i face and set down, after three of them all looked and with a spoon 'analysed the coffee'.
They finally remade my coffee close to what i wanted. Later on found out they are in partnership with supermarket Tesco and fill open starbucks type of joint all over london. too expensive and wait if time.
DONT be fooled with all the Australian reputation of coffee making, there were aussies there, but cheap european labour. they just wanna attract tourists and reap u off.
Go to wood and wild coffee instead, 1 New Oxford Street
