Cafe, Coffee and Tea, Modern Australian


  • Latte - Summer Blend
  • Flat White - Fitzroy Street Blend

The Good

Sorry to say, but not much was good. The cafe had a good atmosphere and decor I guess…

The Mediocre

Both cofees were pretty mediocre and borderline bad. Heres why:

  • Uninspiring flavours from both blends
  • Froth was burnt on both coffees
  • Unpleasant, sour aftertaste from both blends
  • Flat white wasn’t very ‘flat’, and had latte art? What?
  • Both were served lukewarm, like it’s been sitting there for a good 15 minutes

The Bad

The staff pushed for us to order right away after given this extensive menu. Like really? If you want your customers to make a choice for themselve by handing out such an 'informative’ menu, then let them read!

Oh, did I mention it took a good 15+ minutes for the latte to arrive, then another 5 for the flat white. Seriously guys, get your shit together.

The Verdict

An exceptionally disappointing cafe given the name and hype. Both the product AND service missed the mark. Such a shame.

Would Penguin Eat Again?

Sorry, but this place has inherent problems and is definitely a no-go for me.
