The staff unfortunately seemed stressed and unhappy, which contributed to the vibe of the place, they were trying their best to do a lot of things at once. I hope they all get a pay rise for the awesome work they do and hopefully they feel valued because without them the amazing food wouldn’t have come out. They should be super proud.

Intially service was fast and friendly, but no follow-up after food was delivered, so went without additional drinks and clearing of tables. Definitely would be back, with great coffee, so all in all it was an enjoyable visit.

This cafe could easily compete with any great cafes in Melbourne. Well done Joe - your coffee is amazing. I'll definitely visit again whenever I'm around Geelong area.
