    Santuccis - Camberwell/Burwood

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    1392 Toorak Rd
    Camberwell, 3146 (up near Warrigal Rd)
    Commercial link removed

    Went here for lunch today with the wife and bub. *Had heard several good reports from friends and neighbours, this is a new place directly opposite the well-established cafe "bliss".

    Nice retro-Italian decor, down to earth feel. *Courtyard out the back was good, but we abandoned once realising people could smoke out there...

    La Marzocco machine, 3 grinders, grinding only on demand, Pullman tamper in site. *Ordered an espresso (shoulda got a doppio...) with lunch, it eventually came just before the food. *I suppose good things come to those who wait... *presented by the barista (I didnt stop to ask his name) with an explanation that it was a Sumatran origin bean. (I later confirmed with him that they are supplied by Gravity)

    Damn, very very nice! *(Why cant I make them this good?) Downed it in two gulps, so smooth and creamy, not a hint of bitterness. *Could have perhaps been a fraction warmer, but thats being picky. *The wifes latte had a great rosetta.

    Lunch itself was good - eggs benedict for me, pancakes for the wife, fruit salad and scrambled egg for the daughter - simple and well prepared, but otherwise nothing too exciting.

    Two thumbs up.

    Thanks for the tip.
    I was actually in the area yesterday and was on the hunt for a nice coffee/bite to eat.

    Ill definitely give this place a try when im next in the area now that i know a CoffeeSnob is involved.

    Hey my pleasure. Need to spread the word. ;)

    PS: Thanks to Big Brother for removing the "commercial link" to the place mentioned in the title of the thread. Irony much? ::)

    Massimo, I dont think you are giving yourself and the crew enough credit. :) You are far from novices. When people in the coffee industry think they know it all, it is is usually a precursor and indication of mediocrity.

    x2 on the recommendation, Carnegie or Camberwell locations.

    And it would be typical that ive just moved out west from Camberwell a few months ago, was but a stones throw from your place and many other good places

    oh the joys of renting
