My latte at Latticini Cafe Rozelle


A chance encounter (thanks to poor Internet connection at the time) when I decided to take a break from writing from my home office, and I headed up the hill from Victoria Road to Darling Street. A coffee catch up with a neighbouring friend at Latticini Cafe was the order of the day. I had tried one of their friands before, yet the experience was a bit of a blur. I was just in the mood for coffee on my last visit to this establishment.

A great Friday afternoon coffee pick me up. A milky, aromatic and well brewed latte landed on my little table that might have been a little smaller than the stool I was sitting on. My friend opted for a cappuccino, of which she thoroughly enjoyed. Two friends catching up together, wanting to escape their homes for an hour. That was the vibe of this experience, and Latticini Cafe hit a spot for us on this occasion.

The displays look a little empty. If you don't mind sitting on a milk crate look alike (the stools are still comfortable with a cushion) with a bit of company, then you are home and hosed. There are toys for children to play with, and relevant newspapers and magazines to read.

Great coffee. The ambience is now a bit hit and miss. It somehow has that bachelor pad feel. It would be completely understandable if this establishment receives mixed reviews ranging from two to five stars. It is not everybody's cup of tea. I would not be excited to come to this cafe every time I wanted a cup of brew with great company. Funny about that, because I used to enjoy coming here alone. Once in a while, it is okay. Not sure of the relevance of the British flag. A good interior designer is needed to straighten this place out. This will boost Latticini's popularity. I remember when Bar Greco's used to be here, they nailed the ambience in a rather small space. If they can do this, Latticini's can too. Pity about the ambience because their coffee is a hit.
