Limited menu, burnt toast and slow service. If I was in the area I would recommend you try Hansel and Gretel. See less

It's expensive m a coffee for $6 And the shop needs an exhaust system. It smells of all the food cooking on their griddle. I don't mind a bit of nice food smell but the smell in this just too much See less

$6 for a coffee is crazy. Nice coffee, but that’s crazy pricey. Surprised I didn’t get hit with the never mentioned 1.1% eftpos charge. Go to Smogue in Torrens instead. See less

A good cafe with a limited but sufficient breakfast range. They do good coffee. Coffee service is a bit slow compared with the food as the coffee came out once I had almost finished my breakfast. See less

Didn't eat, didn't even get to sit down. I would like to give zero stars. My father and I walked in and and were looking around for somewhere to sit, we decided to sit at the large shared table as there was nowhere else. This took all of 10 seconds but for some reason it elicited an exasperated expression and expulsion of air from the person serving who raised his eyes snorted, and shook his head at us. There was no indication on the table, or anywhere else, as to appropriate covid spacing either. We left to go elsewhere - if the staff are that rude why on earth should they get paid. Much more worthy businesses nearby with staff who actually want you in their cafe, and that is reflected in the way they treat you. Unbelievable and totally disgraceful. See less

Best coffee in Woden. Nice room. Staff....guys you freak me out can you relax a bit. The supercharged greetings smell fake like a cheep new car. 10/10 for effort but you don't have to act like you want to be best friends. Just be polite. See less

A return visit from me from a few years ago. Still good coffee. Offered a filter that was really nice. Gluten free options but sadly no almond milk. The venue is great and staff always friendly though. See less

Great place to have coffee. They serve Wood & Co coffee from Melbourne. I recommend trying their pourover coffee if you like black coffee, it is one of the nicest around, and they change up the origin they use. There are a decent selection of sweets and sandwiches, but they don't have a full menu. During the week, there is usually space to sit and study or work, with the large tables and atmospheric music. There is also a Lava Espresso in Weston which is also worth checking out. See less

Casual, open, minimalistic but good vibe. Staff are great, sandwich was great. Coffee is winner too very simple menu. Don't complicate it, they don't... some music would be nice but it's low key. Good for a mid morning treat. See less
