I love Volley so much I might explode
I go past Volley nearly every day on my way to 7 Grams. Why? 7 Grams has been the business. Last time I went to Volley they had Vitasoy, which I hate. Anyway, a few weeks back, 7 Grams put some woeful coffee out - several times (no offence guys). So Josh my work buddy took me to Volley for some Bonsoy latte. I subsequently met my brother there with his rad dog Cannon. I was going to let Cannon lick the glass but I didn't think Eamon the proprietor would be too stoked on this. Anyway, the coffee was good, Dan had a long black as always. Eamon cares about coffee. He even got a special adaptor which is sans the standard group's bottom metal casing which removes another layer of metal for the fresh coffee to collect old coffee oil from. They don't use the group spouts, again to remove another layer of metal which holds previous coffee's oil. I've been back a couple of times since, and I'm sold. Early in the morning it's quiet, the music is good (and not too loud) and BY GOD has the coffee been outstanding lately. I had a bit of a chat to Eamon this morning and I'm thinking a video and interview is in order. Anyway, 9/10 for me. I had marked this a 7/10, but consistent presentation of outstanding coffee has upgraded them to a 9. You should also check out their soup. A different soup every day of the week, and no soup Nazism either! Soup for everyone. Get there.
