    A hole in the wall, hard to find but everything on the menu is very fresh and tastes amazing!

    Solid Aussie references - Melbourne latte, Tamarama this, Bondi that. No Aussie staff on a Thursday lunchtime though.

    It never ceases to amaze me how unpleasant the staff is here. Doesn't stop me from coming back for that tasty, tasty avocado toast, though.

    I love the food at this place! unfortunately they are a little unreliable about having bread - be sure to come early! There is a big sidewalk -- you can park your dog or your kid outside.

    Questionable hygiene practices by the staff. I will find a new place for my after-yoga tea. Even after telling a staff member about hair falling into the avocado she was slicing nothing was said/done.

    Not your friendly coffee shop. Don't come here expecting a smile, but if the coffee wasn't so good I wouldn't keep coming back.

    A small bird just walked in the front door, loitered in the foyer and then returned outside. This is the first time I've seen this, but it seems possible it'll happen again.

    Expect to wait a good 10 minutes for your coffee. They operate like a true Aussie cafe.

    Breakfast sandwich and coffee here on a perfect day is the best in the hood, especially in a sunny day in the shade. Worth the wait!

    A cozy cafe in a cute neighborhood! Lots of freelancers hang here w/ laptops during the day, but it seems to be a warm community. Met a friend here for breakfast. (3 of 4 petals via Fondu) Read more

    A little odd & oddly timed service, but that just means you can do things like shoot a Kickstarter video set in the front window if you tip well.

    Aside from expertly pulled and potent espresso made from fair-trade Indonesian beans, folks crowd the slim and comfy pillow-strewn space for salads and sandwiches. Read more

    My favorite bite is the Tamarama, flatbreads topped w/sliced hard boiled egg, beefsteak tomato, avocado, evoo, and fresh pepper. Comes with a Flat White (coffee). Dreamy!

    There's a mouse that resides under the raised area in the back. DO NOT KILL HIM. He's the mascot ok?

    Apparently Smooch is going to discontinue Internet on Sundays, the only day I come by to work. Looks like they've lost my business...

    In addition to great coffee and a surly French owner, this place is typical of the nabe in number of hot mixed race patrons.

    Order a late. You won't be disappointed. Some people complain because it's $4, but I'm not one of those people. You shouldn't be either.
