Illy coffee. A blend of delicatessen and cafe; indoor and outdoor seating, range of items on sale that would rival any gourmet store, plus a sandwich bar ready to sell a wealth of lunch options. Staff are reserved, a greek man works the coffee machine, a lady – his daughter? – handles the food orders.
Local businesspeople wander in occasionally; burwood is still waking up in front of me. Coffee is not too bad; the latte is presented well, but i’m here too early to receive the best the machine has to offer… There’s no sound of the grinder to be heard, sadly.
