“Very good”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2013

A warm welcome, quick service and really good coffee.
So many places don't yet know how to serve a proper flat white, so this was a happy find.
As locals with time on our hands in retirement, a nice place with great coffee and a good atmosphere will be on our list to recommend to our family and friends.

“Good coffee - bad service!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2013

Thought I'd support local trade and give the big coffee chains a miss! Coffee tasted good but was not hot enough! Service was poor, young guy was more interested in chatting to female staff and on his phone!! Tried the cake (which was reasonably priced) but tasted stale and lacked any flavour! Luckily found a good independent coffee house down the road with great coffee, reasonably priced and most importantly a personal service!

Good quality coffee and nice friendly service. Loved the Many different options available for the coffee and the fact that it was available for sale in a small store is brilliant keep up the good work of selling excellent coffee and showing people how good coffee should be :-)

“A breath of fresh air.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2013

108 is like a breath of fresh air, it is everything an independent coffee shop should be, the cafe is small but this allows customers to chat to staff, something which is often not considered. The attitude of all staff is great and they have a real passion for coffee, which makes you appreciate what you're being served all the more.

Pricing is great, really cheap for the quality of product. You won't find a proper flat white for £2.10 anywhere else!

I hope that 108 grows and continues to be successful. It is hard for cafes to be so focused on perfection and any establishment that continually strives to achieve it should be wholeheartedly applauded.

“Best coffee in Truro”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 31, 2013 via mobile

By far the best coffee you will get in Truro and don't forget to check out the new shop in Malpas it's great for a pre dog walk drink.
