Down Under: Time for a Cuppa!

You couldn’t miss the queue as customers grabbed a coffee on their way to work. Served by a Japanese barista whom I’m told is one of the best in the country, this place also roasts their own coffee. There is a side place for customers to order their coffee, pick it up and go, and a little cafe where one could dine in. I dined in, of course.

The strawberry and yoghurt muffin was good and I had my fruit toast. The service staff were friendly. It was a weekday mid-morning so we could still get seats. The coffee was good and I found out about coffee that is aeropressed, which seemed similar to a French press. This piqued my interest but no, I did not ask for my coffee to be aeropressed. I figured I’d google it a little later to find out more.

Strawberry and yoghurt muffin which was quite popular and several customers tend to pick one up and go

Fruit toast and butter that was served on a wooden block.

The cafe is located on a street corner. This was very common as almost all the small cafes I went to were located on street corners. They roast their own coffee. This place reminds me of the Japanese cafes in Japan, though more laid back. It is a busy place and not one where you would sit and chill for long.
