When we first looked through the windows we saw this bright orange VW parked inside a shop. Well what a surprise. It turned out to be a cafe! A real Retro Cafe. This is a lovely, small and unique cafe with great character. The owners are very friendly and happy to share their story. With background music from the good... More

The atmosphere is very energetic, upbeat, and all around fun. It commands your activity. The culture is very diverse from the show selection, music, patrons, and staff. The level of detail is unmatched beginning with your arrival and ending with your departure.

As the sign says at the front of the shop, "serious coffee drinkers only!" Take that to heart before you enter the shop. As a coffee lover who despises Starbucks and other commercially "branded" coffee places, the coffee served here truly does stand out. The owner may seem a bit eccentric and aloof to some(I did not really like his... More

cafe is unusual in decor and it ends there. Couple who runs it has major service attitude. They are both insolent n contemptuous in demeanour. A sign on the door says 'serious coffee drinker only'. At 1st l thought it was a clever signage. I now say it's the arrogance of one who thinks he is the ants pants in... More

Simply the best coffee we had. Yes, thou shall not ask for Starbucks type of coffee or thou will be reprimanded - in fact, just go to Starbucks... But this guys knows what he is talking about, roasts his own beans on coal and does the perfect brew. Sweet!!!

We discovered this tiny little coffee shop by chance. I can understand some comments made by other travelers on the owner. He is not super friendly and a bit strict with his house rules (1 drink per person). He is not making long blacks as he is passionate about coffee. His espresso was excellent! we didn't try the coffee cup... More

I believe the coffee owner is passionate about the coffee. Unfortunately, both of them are really lack of knowledge in serving the customer in a proper way. A gang of 11 of us were visited to this coffee shop and being informed there do not have enough space for us. We also awared our gang is too huge for this... More

The owner is not only passionate about coffee but has made it his life's work to work out how to make the best coffee possible. He has worked out how to roast carefully selected beans on Japanese charcoal to make great tasting coffee. It is great tasting coffee and a cool place to drink it too. It was a privilege... More
