“Coffee not that great”
Reviewed April 27, 2014 via mobile

This is a quirky little cafe, with plenty of 50s/60s memorabilia and retro gear for sale. It claims incredibly good coffee but to be honest it was far from it. It smelled burned (almost like an ashtray). My wife had an ice coffee which was better and the did was just ok. Not sure if head back in a hurry

“Nice shop, not sure on the coffee”
Reviewed January 3, 2014 via mobile

Took a chance at the unique looking store. Self acclaimed "great coffee" I would say an average coffee and staff need training and maths skills so lady from out back doesn't need to save the day. Store has a great feel to it, with the vintage chic feel going on and the new age retro toys and a like. Not much room for a pram but in saying this with a bit of work this could be a regular haunt for many

“Retro or nana?”
Reviewed November 10, 2013 via mobile

I think the theme is retro and quaint, but I felt there was too much going on between the decor, merchandise and clothes. Millymoo is a cafe with old-fashion toys, clothes and kids clothes for sale. The coffee is excellent though not many choices of sweets were on offer besides sticky date and chocolate mousse cake, which I had and thought was average. I'm not trying to be critical of this joint, but I appreciate it's uniqueness. So in conclusion, visit for the coffee.
