No signs anywhere at 68 High St Northcote – Westgarth end. Coffee is OK but a little simple and weak, but a very interesting and bold menu. We were here on a hot day – no fans inside – lights were all on – why? There is a fan in the backyard terrace area? Why?
Food is interesting though service is hit and miss. There appear to be a lot of people in the kitchen – too many for the amount of food that has to be prepared. Too many cooks …….! Worth a visit – but go on a cool day! Coffee 3 stars, food 4 stars, service 2 stars. Average of 3 stars. Will revisit!
Has potential to be a Five Star Cafe (or even 6) but inconsistency of service, coffee quality and overall ‘feel’ needs to be improved!
On a recent visit ( January 6th 2012) we can report that the coffee was excellent. Dishes were of very good quality and portion size was good and service was quick. Only comment is that there is a certain ‘sameness’ across the entire menu. Everyone is now doing, poached eggs, chorizo, fetta, harissa etc. You would think that for a ‘Spanish’ inspired cafe you could find something a little more interesting and authentic. So for now up to a 4 star rating – which is damn good. Still no fans or aircon inside – so on a hot day maybe this is not a good choice for those trying to keep out of the heat!
