Coffee Type: A Large Energetic Cappuccino

Location: 43 Victoria St, Mosman Park WA 6012

Coffee in one word or more: Energetic!!!

Atmosphere: So, yes. I watched Australian Ninja Warrior and this is how I stumbled across this epic little cafe. That and I was telling a mate about my intentions to visit this place and he just looked at me like we had had this discussion before. Turns out we had, as this is the coffee store around the corner from his place that we were going to get a brew from on the weekend. So I guess we had had that conversation before…not sure I was 100% present though. Anywho, this place made me laugh as soon as I stepped inside. The leaky tap theme is strong here. And they possibly have the best and most OHS compliant coffee shop uniform I have ever seen. You can’t help but feel happy here.

Service: So So So very impressive. These guys made me smile from the time I stepped through the door. It is such a cosy and fun setting. On top of that the crew that work here are so engaging they make you feel like your part of the crew. These guys embody the essence of coffee experience for me. I would happily get a coffee here every day just for the experience associated with it.

Roast / Bean: Sorry I was so distracted by the coffee plumbing theme.

Cost: Standard Rims for Perth!!!

Reward schemes:  ???

☕️☕️☕️☕️☕️  I really enjoy going here. The experience of awesomeness is one that is hard to put into words. You guys rock!!!

Although for those that know me you know thats probably not much of a strain on their half. Did I mention they are an award winning bakery

Service: I can’t explain how much I like pooping in here. These guys keep us sain when we are in town. They are the best escape around with amazing coffee and treats. It is an adventure every time we go there.

Brickfields Chippendale

Coffee Type: A long black with one.

Location: 206 Cleveland Street, Chippendale.

Coffee in one word: Pleasant

Atmosphere: With a name like Brickfields and my notable obsession with lego, how could I not visit a cafe with a name like Brickfields. While the cafe has nothing to do with lego it is still an awesome little local secret. It is a bakery as well as a cafe so you can just imagine how amazing it smells when you step inside. They have an excellent layout which lets you see right into the bakery to whats going on, so your curious side can be appeased. You can even sit on the park benches outside the cafe and they will serve your coffee there, which I think is very unique and cool. On the wall when you walk in is a cool feature wall of tiles that they have incorporated into the design of the takeaway coffee cups which is a very unique technique.

Service: So they have one of the coolest serving techniques I have come across. I a a bit of a tech geek and as such love gadgets and the like. As soon as you walk in you are served by a friendly staff member with a iPad who takes your order and your money so you don’t have to line up at the counter. They are very friendly here and the staff combination make for a very funky vibe. This was the first time I had been to this cafe but thanks largely to the staff I will become more of a regular here.

Roast / Bean: In house blend.

Cost: Good price for the area.

Reward schemes: Nil

☕️☕️☕️☕️☕️ This will become one of my regular coffee haunts. Thats how much of an initial impression it had on me.
