Excellent coffee, great flavour and correct temperature to bring out the flavour of the beans. A good range of tasty treats, but thE coffee is the star.

On my recent visit there was a brand new, very impressive looking coffee roaster in the shop and the owner Nick was all smiles. His coffee as always was wonderful. He has his own outstanding signature blend and his shop is a must visit for all true coffee lovers.

Best coffee in Lismore! Such a smooth blend. Shame they're not opened longer. Several people working so service was relatively quick. So nice, will be back!

Always on the hunt for good coffee when travelling for business from Manly in Sydney. Found this little espresso bar and returned 3 times over the 2 days I was in Lismore. Had to eat elsewhere as food is limited but the coffee was just too good, friendly, helpful barista and locals having a yarn made it a pretty cool... More

Well, I'm totally biased in this review, as we've know Nick (owner) for a number of years - but this is the place if you want real, really good coffee. Nick sources & roasts his beans, the coffee is always outstanding - in 5 years we've never had a sub-standard one - and Nick will always discuss the fine points... More

This is only a coffee place - if you're looking for a lovely breakfast with that great coffee they serve, then you'll be disappointed. The day I went they had donuts. That's all. But the coffee is good, They are essentially an espresso bar so don't go there for food - there ain't any.

I found this place on the Bean Hunter app and it was supposed to be the best coffee in Lismore. I would definitely agree. Ordered my double shot latte and everything was perfect about it, not too much froth, great taste and just the right temperature. Throw in a nice fellow running it and a modern minimalist setting and it's... More
