Lunch place: Caffettaria Allpress

Friday, June 02, 2017

Still reminiscing about the pumpkin and walnut sourdough sandwich I had for lunch today at Allpress cafe on Drake St.

It was warm, a little bit gooey and chewy without being oily or too messy. The soy flat white that companioned the lunch plate was also robust and smooth.

Things I liked about Caffettaria Allpress:

  • The lovely clean earthy toned dining area

  • The see-through display of coffee beans chutes

  • Service was pretty quick and pleasantly attentive

Things I wish had been different:

The sandwiches could have been labelled so we didn't have to ask the lady over the counter, while the queue quickly formed behind us

  • The earthy room was a bit too noisy, not the best acoustics

  • The next area, the roomy white gallery space with cool hanging plants, had no free tables - that's what you get for going to a popular place!

Definitely up for going back and trying the different bean roasts and also the cauliflower blue cheese soup!
