Totally awesome, do not miss!

Magnifique!

Wow. Don't let the zany moustaches fool you. This is a place serious about coffee, and also asymmetrically wheel-sized early 20th century bikes. But I digress. Matt B told me to check this place out, so thanks Matt B. I ordered a double ristretto, which came with tasting notes. The double ristretto was intense, and very velvety in my mouth. The tasting notes concurred and I then felt so wise. But seriously, the more places like PF I visit, the more I am enjoying the nerdy side of coffee. Trying to pick flavours is a fun game. The latte was solid. But, I must save my most lavish praise for the avocado smash. Perfectly ripe avocado, a tiny bit of fetta (too many places go overboard on fetta) a touch of mint, a touch of basil, and olive oil and chili on the side, with a wedge of lemon. I put it all on, then my eyes rolled back in my head (think of Homer Simpson) as the deliciousness invaded my mouth like an army of taste ninjas. Good Lord. Now this is avocado smash done RIGHT. Do yourself a favour and check this place out. Look hard as it's largely unsigned - there's a small handwritten sign in the bottom right corner of the shop front. Plenty of seating out the back, nice fitout. Credit cards are ok

Good flavour, avg service

Came in for coffee and breakky. Service was average, as we didn't get served first and coffees came out at different times. Good flavour in the beans, but luke warm coffee.
