“best coffee in town hall”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 18, 2013

their coffee is really good! they take good care of their customers. it is a hole in the wall seriously so don't go there expecting to sit down, it's more like a take away. their little sweets are also nice, i would go for their snacks though.

“Reminds me of Rome”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 18, 2013

Excellent espresso, cozy place, friendly staff, and reasonable prices. The excellent espresso and very friendly staff reminds me of my trip to Rome. Iced Mocha was very refreshing in a super hot day as well. Among the best I ever had in Australia and definitely better than the big chains. To find it look for a small place across the Queen Victoria building in George street.

“Best coffee in ages”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 31, 2012

A hole in the wall coffee shop that serves breakfast and snacks. Only had time for sit down cafe lattes, but so glad we did as the taste and presentation was spot on. Its a tight fit sitting down, but the atmosphere was superb, as was the service. Will be heading there again when next in the Sydney CBD.

“Perfect Flat Whites & Good Looking Baristas. Best way to start your mornings!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 23, 2012

Super - duper fabulous!!! The highlight of my trip in Sydney was the morning dosage of flat whites I had from Workshop Espresso!! For only AUD 2.50, it completes my day!! Also try their breakfast specials - generous portions and delish too!

Their flat whites are so perfect - the perfect taste and temperature compared to the other hole-in-the wall cafes that I have tried. And I love the way the baristas work.. And to top it off, they are so good looking..

What a way to start your mornings!!

“Average Coffee, Friendly Barista”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 12, 2012

The coffee was average, so I was surprised that it is highly-rated on Urbanspoon.
The barista was very friendly, but the cashier should probably learn how to smile.
