I always enjoy my home brewed coffee and eats. With life so expensive these days its refreshing to find a friendly spot serving quality coffee and tasty bites at reasonable prices. Keep up the good work.

A small and intimate coffee shop next to supermarket serving superb coffee . So many coffee shops serve average coffee but the Coffee Society lives up to it;s name and serves far better than average coffee. Normal snacks and eats are on offer but I often stop by for the coffee. AS a not-an-instant coffee drinker and a hater of... More

This used to be my favourite hangout, great coffee, adequate menu, and so handy after shopping. A good place to meet friends and watch the world wag by, out in the sunshine. But now the coffee per cup price has almost doubled, and the menu is not enticing enough to tempt me to go there for the food - stodgy... More

Whilst on a recent holiday in P E, my sister and I met up with a friend who had a short time for a cuppa. She suggested this place as it was close to where she was. We had three disasters with our orders. My tea was so strong that it was undrinkable. I requested extra boiling water, but it... More

What a great and simple value for money breakfast as well as an awesome selection of filter coffees which change daily! I love the simplicity and variety that is available at this shop. Thank you.

A great place to hang out with friends or alone for a rest after working out at gym. The venue is great. Staff are friendly and efficient. Menu is fabulous.

Occasionally I like to just get a quick breakfast with a friend or colleague and a nice cup of coffee. The breakfast is tasty and value for money and the coffee is great. I always enjoy a great cup of filter and the second one for free always tastes better! Thank you.

I recently took an elderly family member there for lunch and was disappointed in how things have gone since I was there the last time (admittedly some years ago). The menu is much reduced and the delicious salads and rolls are no longer on display. The interior is definitely dated ("tired") although clean. Staff was friendly but slow... our waitress... More

I have spend many a morning and afternoon and evening either enjoying the good coffee. Being at a shopping centre and the gym makes it a good spot to relax abit or chat up with friends.
