“See baristas at work”
Reviewed May 9, 2014

Nice open concept where you can see the baristas at work. This place was packed on a Friday afternoon. No sign of a crowd from the exterior until we stepped in. Tried the hand drip karatu estate brew. Full body with a sweet aftertaste. The carrot cake though small, was moist and nice. This place sells coffee accessories and runs workshops too.

“Nice place, great coffee”
Reviewed May 5, 2014 via mobile

Went there with my hubby. Love the concept & that they are still maintaining the shop's name.we ordered cold brew coffee. Not to my liking. Shld have just ordered an espresso with milk. Staffs are all very friendly & helpful. Nice place to chill with friends and families.

“hidden gem!”
Reviewed May 1, 2014

on first look, it looks like an old shop house/warehouse. Behind those heavy metal gates, its actually a gem! pretty crowded on a public holiday around 4pm. old school tables on the alfresco site and i love the raw modernistic indoor look.
Have to try the raspberry cheesecake! its delectable! love the base crust of it!
the espresso+milk (latte?) was smooth and aromatic especially with the fine brown sugar added. saw on the menu they actually serves all day breakfast, french toast etc
overall: a cool place for a bite and chat.

“Fine coffee and food”
Reviewed April 14, 2014

A strange place for a great cafe, but I guess that's part of the attraction. Tucked away in a street of clan houses and (Former) light industrial, this place still retains the facade (literally) of its former incarnation as a hardware shop.

Coffee is brewed on site and is excellent. The sweet treats are mostly delicious (avoid the brownies though) and the philly cheesesteak sandwich, while it has little in common with what's sld in Philadelphia, is delicious.

“Buzzy Place”
Reviewed December 29, 2013 via mobile

After visiting and finding it closed on a Monday, this time, on a Saturday, the place was buzzing.

Bar top tables are packed close together. You can sit at the bar too but the most comfortable are the seats that put you at the right height for a meal.

Food is good though we only tried breakfast. And so is the coffee.

The decor gives you something to look at and there are newspapers for those who don't their company interesting!
