Inside the stunning warehouse-turned-eatery there is a huge takeaway counter that operates like a well oiled machine, churning out more coffees than you can keep count of. The lines are longer than a busy bar on a Friday night but it moves surprisingly quickly. So you can grab a coffee and some cake to tie you over while you (try to) patiently wait for your name to be called out.
Once we were FINALLY seated (an hour and 20 mins later), I opted for the juice of the day served in a jar which was tasty and distracted me momentarily from how hungry I was. The menu has lots of great options but I wanted to make a quick decision and opted for the breakfast board which had many of my favourite things – ham, poached egg, pesto and toast. The food came out quickly and was delicious, although a little bit messy as it is almost a build-your-own-breakfast. But, as the name suggests, their main claim to fame is their coffee, and they don't disappoint in that department either.
The bitter: The waits, the food was great but not worth waiting that long. The sweet: The building, I want to own a farm house just like it The damage: Not cheap, breakfast board was $19, so about $30 each.
