It offers a quiet place to eat during the day, with a range of Australian and Korean dining experiences. When we visited, there was also a Korean BBQ taking place. There are also special daily menus. It is best to consult their Facebook page for details of these rather than their website, which appears to be still under development, however the pork cutlet schnitzel appears to be a particular favourite with the regular diners.
As the name suggests, it also offers a wide range of different types of coffee, which are blended and roasted on-site in restored antique coffee roasters. These can be bought to drink on site or to take away as a beverage or packaged for brewing later.

Dining at the Coffee Laboratory isn't fine cuisine, but it is well prepared and offers good value for money. The coffee is well worth the visit by itself. Personally myself, I opted for my usual choice of breakfast and thoroughly enjoyed the meal.

Although the advertised opening hours of The Coffee Laboratory indicates that this is a day only eatery - do checkout their Facebook pages and local advertising, as they appear to run a lively series of evening musical concerts on Thursday evenings. Food is available for purchase, but wine is BYO.
