“Great coffee...”
Reviewed April 4, 2014

Called into One Penny Black on a Sunday morning. I had an excellent strong flat white and my companion a hot chocolate. The latter was reported as being 'very good!".
It's a real shame we had breakfasted earlier because, looking at the diners and their meals around us, One Penny Black offers a great selection.
If I find myself in the area again, I will definitely return.
Well worth a look.

Reviewed March 9, 2014

The open sandwiches were delicious also, and very filling. Only negative was the line up for the second coffee, but it just shows how popular this place is. Hispter but not.

“Wonderful breakfast”
Reviewed March 6, 2014

Had a really wonderful breakfast here this morning! We ordered muesli with poached fruit, salmon and avocado on sourdough and a ham, spinach and cheddar toasted sandwich which all were wonderful and couldn't fault it one bit. Coffee was really nice as well. There was a bit off a wait but that's due to the high demand of the place, the line was out the door for most of he morning!

“Great coffee but expensive”
Reviewed February 2, 2014

I had a seriously good coffee here and a breakfast plate. It was over priced I thought, although quite tasty. Took a long time to get served and the staff seem content to chat amongst themselves. If they lost the attitude it would be better. Steer clear if you don't like hipsters.
