I experienced poor the service the moment I stepped up to the counter. Food was overpriced, got given attitude for ordering a cold drink, and then a sassy explanation for why it took so ridiculously long to arrive to our table, long after everyone else...More

I like Espressoholic it has a realness to it...including its customers. Moccacino was good and the caramel slice delicious. I like that they (still) offer cream and/or yoghurt with your cakes. Service was friendly. I'd recommend Espressoholic for good coffee and cake.

A fun little cafe on Cuba street, easy to find. Very quirky decor and a nice little outdoor spot out the back. Happy friendly staff. Reasonable prices and yummy food from both the menu and cabinet.

We ordered a tiramisu and black forest cake. My friend asked the man behind the counter if we could have yoghurt with the cake, which he replied yes to. When I was about to pay, I noticed that the total was 50 cents more than...More
