“Excellent food and coffee”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 9, 2013 via mobile

Had lunch here...small menu which is nice. Wife had sausage, egg and biscuit sandwich. I had ham, egg and gruyere sandwich. Both very simple but wow, very well executed with top quality ingredients. My food was great, but the sausage biscuit was off the chart. Home made sausage from Underbelly next door. Very cool spot with coffee, wifi and a pleasant atmosphere.

“Loved the scones and cappuccino”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 3, 2013

Came here for a quick breakfast and was pleasantly surprised. The scone with creme fraiche and jam was awesome! My boyfriend loved the scone with egg, bacon and cheese on it. Cappuccino was awesome. I would definitely come back!

“Old croissant. Plus coffee=$8”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 10, 2013 via mobile

Coffee is ok. But the real death is when you order a plain croissant and they ask if you want it heated. Never a good sign. I asked that it not be heated but it came heated anyway.

The real shocker was the sticker price of $8 for a stale plain croissant and coffee. When a cafe doesn't attend to the details, they've lost me as a customer.

“Great coffee shop”

Even coffee haters will love drinking Blacksmith's java. The homemade biscuits and sausage is the perfect way to start the day.
