It's a tiny place with no seating, but if you're after a great coffee, it hits the spot. Great taste & smoothness. Deserves its Beanhunter #1 rating!

Do not let the appearance fools you, this little coffee shop in the middle of Picadilly Arcade is serving a very good taste of coffee. They got few selection of beans that you can order, and I think they could also let you mix the beans (not really sure though). Stop by when you visit Hay / Murray street mall... More

Great little coffee shop almost hidden away in Piccadilly Arcade. The coffee is so flavourful and far more robust than your average Joe. The baristas are skilled and cool to chat with and they always manage a cheeky chalkboard sign out front of shop. Its in my Top 5 on Perth CBD

This is a highly rated coffee place for past several years and we have been enjoying the coffee served here. This recent trip was a letdown. We ordered 2 piccolo, one with extra shot. The extra shot was a disaster, sour and bitter. The normal piccolo was acceptable. They need to sort this out fast or customers will not be... More

Had coffee here. Good coffee , efficient service, good price. Not much else to say just pick up your coffee and wander into the sun to enjoy. Some pastries available for those with a sweet tooth.

I've been here a few times now and they always deliver good coffee. The staff are a good bunch and they appear to be real lovers of coffee and what they do.

This is the 3rd cafe we visited that are serious about coffee and serve the best one among the 3. We also visited Gesha and Hush in Freo.

Black coffee was great. They meant serious with their coffee. Been recommended and indeed worth to look for. There was no seating, so just order what we prefer and walk out continuing activities. Smart idea for busy customers at CBD. One of few best coffee I tried in Perth.
