Essen has clearly changed since i have last attended. It does not have the same atmosphere or feel to it all. I expect the ownership has changed - only 2 staff members here, and with quite ordinary service. I was rushed to decide my food and it was efficient, yes, but not of high quality. An empty cafe, bad service, annoying music, and a very unnatural feel. will not be coming here again!
Great coffee. Love the Cafe Roma - a double shot cap. Gets quite busy and service is sometimes a little slow if the owner isnt there. However, the staff are lovely! Always good music playing in the background, cool vibe, I often take clients there for meetings. Enjoy
Ordered two cakes, one was so dry we had to return it. Staff was nice about it though and gave us another cake. Cakes tasted ok, clearly baked somewhere else, atmosphere quite boring, would not recommend.
Cheerful but uneven service. A curious wait even though quiet. Coffee was good with a nice range of beans. Menu not particularly unique. Breakfast wrap was tasty. A simple dish done well.
Friendly atmosphere with tastey fresh food that includes vegetarian selections. Great coffee with in and outdoor seating. Tucked back in off the street so you might have to look close
Friendly service, but the food is totally average .. Watery tasteless eggs on thick sliced sunblest with woolies bacon. Coffee is decent.
Nice coffee, breakfast good and a generous serving size (bacon a little greasy) poached eggs were perfect. Service was quick and polite.
An old Canberra favourite... Right by the door it says: "We can live without religion, but we cannot survive without great coffee."
Somewhat extraordinarily still open after all these years. The menu is shockingly still the same and the service ordinary.
Staff were friendly and helpful, coffee was good. Cakes were a little disappointing and atmosphere was a little sterile.
What a great way to start a day! Had steak Sandwich and Smoked Salmon sandwich, Massive size and Amazingly delicious.!.!
