I figured that since I was there, I might as well be adventurous with the coffee, so I selected the Kenya Nyeri filter, which was described on the menu to have blackcurrant notes. The filters arrive in beaker-like containers that appear to be made out of the same material as mortar and pestle sets. Like steeped tea, the coffee is watery and is imbibed without milk. The coffee is bitter and, in the case of the Kenya Nyeri, it tasted like tart berries (which corresponds with the blackcurrant description). It was interesting giving it a go, but as I'm not partial to sour flavours, I will not be ordering it again.

|Brioche with dulce de leche ($6.00)|
|Baleada with eggs, queso fresco (cheese) and black bean ($11.00)|
And so I ordered a strawberry, rose and vanilla milkshake. It was summary, milky and refreshing, with the rosewater being the strongest flavour of the three. Choosing it to accompany my cake was definitely a wise choice, as it was light and didn't result in sugar overload.
|Strawberry, rose and vanilla milkshake ($7.50)|
|Passion fruit coconut teacake ($4.00)|
|King prawn with avocado, corn salad, endive, chipotle aioli and lime ($18.00)|
