Hello my fellow coffee lovers! I’m coming out on this one swinging. First no coffee shop should ever charge you extra for whipped cream. That should be a given. Now I understand from what I can see while I’m here that this is a fairly new establishment (not worth my 45 minute drive out here). However I can see where people can become attached to this charming spot, Quokka Coffee. It is indeed charming everything is pretty much brand new.
3 flat screen Samsung TV’s, a future beer and wine list, surf board tables for the window seating, and a comfy leather couch. What brought me all the way out here? The Flat-White. It’s the Aussie favorite and I had to give it a go especially after a recent article that I wrote for The Daily City. What I have a hard time dealing with is on Quokka Coffee’s website are misrepresented photos of what their coffee actually looks like. You can see my Flat-White photo, there’s no latte art. I get it maybe it’s me being a bit of a *insert curse word here* but come on. Every Flat-White photo on the internet has some sort of latte art on it.
Let me get into the meat of it, the coffee was enjoyable regardless of the un-velvetiness of the foam, the atmosphere is loud due to the street being right on top of you as you enjoy your coffee. However the people seem some what friendly…to the locals who come in here. If I compare this to B3’s atmosphere (them being a bike specific coffee shop) Side note: Floridians and their bikes can be…eh…well you know snotty.
Anyways B3’s atmosphere is so welcoming and inviting, they don’t care if you ride a bike or not, they simply love you! I am pretty disappointed in this place, so I’m not going to really recommend it to anyone. I think what I can’t get over is the payment for extras that I think should just be a given in my opinion…whipped cream…really?
stars in my book, not worth the 45 minute drive, coffee was good, but it could have been better, still too new of a place for me.
Peace & Love,
