  • Wow!!! A compliment....

    Today OG and I had to drop the car of to the mechanic before 8am in Norwood.

    We were going to have a coffee at Simply Coffee and pick up my green beans before walking into the city. SC was closed still, so we decided to have a coffee at one of the very popular and long term cafes in Rundle street who usually make a pretty decent coffee. Og asked for is usual - a strong cappuccino and I had a latte. My latte was pretty good, but OG wasnt happy.

    "Its not as good as you make at home" he said.

    WOW!!!!

    I had a taste - and he was right - I do make better at home. Although the flavour was okay (not burnt tasting), it was very weak compared to what we have at home.

    Whilst in the city we did have a nice coffee at a little cafe in Gays Arcade and on the walk back to Norwood to pick up the car we dropped into SC and picked up our beans and had a coffee there - which was (as usual) very good.

    Its really nice to get feedback like that once in a while.

    Its because you make it with love, care and attention to detail, not for $10 an hour after school. Something only great cafe owners seem to understand. The ones that employ and train skilled baristas, who take pride in their work and have a passion for it.

            Yep- old grumpy it is. ;D

            Gays Arcade runs of Adelaide Arcade in Rundle Mall. The Coffee was very reasonably priced ($2.80) compared to the other coffee shops and very nicely made. I had a quick look at their menu and that was quite good too.

                      And I thought it meant Other Guy - but we wont go there in case any little ones are watching.

                      Gay Arcade? No wonder you were happy about your coffee!

                      Yes, its not often that I go out for coffee when I can get the good stuff at home, or if I do Ill go to a coffee destination, such as the Wall, or Batch Espresso, where I know that I wont be disappointed.

                      Still, Im always happy to discover a new coffee haven...
