I have been here many times but this is the first time I am writing a review. I go here quite often as I work nearby and even on weekends I make the time to stop in as the staff are so lovely. Additionally their...drinks are amazing, every time I try something new I find my new favourite drink. Their coffee, iced teas, Italian sodas and lattes are just amazing and their oat cakes and cookies are perfect treats! Definitely stop by if you have the chance!More

Everyone is so into places like this. It is a cup of coffee. No better or worse than anywhere else. More concerning to me is the wooden stir stick concept and the DIY milk/sugar. Those stir sticks have a flavour that ruins coffee to me....Good cakes/cookies and such available, high prices ruin them though.More

This is a great little coffee shop. It's a touch bohemian, which is surprising considering we are in Sydney, N.S. My wife and I had an iced coffee and a latte. Both were excellent. Definitely recommend this joint.

Stayed overnight at the Sydney waterfront holiday inn. The pub was off the lobby. Food was really good value for the money. Limited menu but good selection. Service was really good. Fun waitress. Glass never empty. Would go again.

We were going to go to Starbucks but this was better. Really nice dark roast and a delicious latte. The cookies were really good too.

I live pretty far away so whenever I have the chance to get a cappuccino from this place I jump at it. I have also been to some pretty great community events which they opened their space up to. Locally owned. Nice place to catch...up with people. I always run into someone I needed to catch up with at this shop :)More

Doktor Luke’s is a great spot for a drink. I’m a creature of habit and I almost always get lattes, which are consistently great. The staff are friendly and hardworking.

THERE ARE BETTER OPTIONS NEARBY! I stopped by to pick up a coffee for my husband and I. The server wasn’t overly friendly. I didn’t catch his name; brown haired man with no beard. I ordered three drinks and asked for a tray. The drinks...were promptly ready. The server told me that they had no trays, then blankly stared at me. When I said nothing, he told me that he would look in the back. I put the cream/ milk in my drinks and waited. He never followed up with me and actually started serving other customers. I asked, “did you find a tray?”. He transactionally said, “no, sorry”. I paused then started to stack my coffee knowing that I would end up dropping one eventually. I stood at the door (obviously my hands were full) and I couldn’t open the door alone. I asked, “can you open the door please?”. He did. As I was leaving, I smiled and said, “you should keep an eye on your tray stock as people walking out with a number of coffees cannot hold more than two”. He said nothing (expectedly). I walked away. I WILL NEVER BE BACK, and I would not recommend this place to anyone just by customer service alone. If this server had of been at least genuinely apologetic about the lack of trays and helpful, my review would have been five stars as the coffee wasn’t that bad.More
