I was super excited when I first came, the decor was funky, the water was free, staff seemed friendly and the coffee tasted great. But my how fast things changed. Last night my friends and I were sitting around talking about this place and all three of us had one major complaint. THE STAFF! It seems the popularity of the cafe has gone to their heads and they think they're the ones in the spotlight and they're acting like divas! There's on server, he's a Filipino guy with a funky hairdo that's shaved on the side, that we all seemed to have been snapped on by. For me when I asked about decaf options I was treated as if I had just asked him to sacrifice his first born. My friend came 15 minutes before closing and simply wanted to get a sandwich to takeaway and was met again by his snappy persona. When she asked the kitchen staff if they minded to heat the sandwich up they were more than happy to do it for her. My other friend asked for milk alternatives and received a whole lecture on how soy milk is bad for you and almond milk isn't good in coffee. Also if you want a vegan option it takes an act of congress, or if you're lucky to have one of the western staff, to get it done. I was told on two visits I couldn't remove one thing and replace with an alternative that met my diet. However it was miraculously possible when the manager came over. This places wants to pretend like it's all hipster and funky but fails to realize that hipster and funky people like sustainable and healthy diets so don't get on your soap box and preach to us why milk is good for you and educate your staff on how to be flexible to meet people's health requirements and for god's sake get some coconut milk like every other trendy coffee house from Soho to Melbourne! I think I will stick with RAW coffee for my organic fair trade brew as they like to accommodate me and my lactose intolerance!
