Coffee with style in Brunswick
A large black brick warehouse which stands proud as Brunswick's newest roastery. It's bold, stylish and inviting. On the weekend of opening, it held the Victorian barista championships.

You enter the coffee arena greeted by tall shelves of java paraphernalia, circumnavigating the bar to find an appropriate place to perch. A friend and I sat in a quiet spot to the other side of the kitchen. It was so new and shiny, there was still a film of sawdust on bits of furniture I closely examined with my fingers.

The staff were very accommodating seeing to our every need, whilst sharing the excitement for their new residency. The staff looked chic in their own individual style, one stood out dressed for the occasion in a beetlejuice striped French maid outfit. Our waitress was helpful, informing me of the seasonal blend and single origin options. I opted for an El Salvador 'cup of excellence', single origin, long mac and it did not disappoint.

I was a little peckish too so went for the 'French toasted gingerbread s&wich'. It had a vanilla fresh cream centre, topped with caramelised pineapple and syrup. It wasn't sickly rich. It was perfectly sweet, moist and well textured.

The menu has some very inventive creations. The brunch section boasts of having 'Australia's Best Toasted Sandwich 2012'. It has a good range of sandwiches, something for the 'Little Peeps', fruity cous cous, good choice of salads, croquettes, fritters, baked silken tofu done with a twist and much more.

A great place to drop by or make an afternoon of it.
