24 days of coffee Essence of Coffee Pier Street review by guest blogger Frank
My usual morning coffee stops are generally within a 2-minute walk of my office on the west side of town so a brisk 10-minute walk to get a morning coffee on the other side of town is a big call.
Essence of Coffee, located on Pier Street, was a pleasant surprise. The cool décor, comfy couches and buzzing crowd made for a great atmosphere. We were greeted by a sign stating that it was the Best Coffee in Perth 2012 as voted by perthnow.com.au which got us excited.
We ordered our usual coffees, flat white $4 and a Piccolo $4 for my friend. The price was around what we expected to pay and we both thought the breakfast menu looked good. We spotted amongst other things a Big Breakfast $14 and Granola with yoghurt and berries for $8, which we thought were good value for money.
The coffees were served with a smile and without much of a wait. The coffee itself was a bit bitter for my liking as I prefer my flat white to be a little smoother, but I did still enjoy it and it was nice to see the other side of town.
Frank’s coffee rating: 7/10
