Lite Bite, Newtown

Glinelli coffee. 67 King St, Newtown. Spotted this place (sadly, closed) when walking back from RPA towards work one day. It seems that they would do most of their business with takeaway customers for the bus stop at the front of the cafe, so when I visit on a Saturday it’s pretty quiet.

The focus is on the healthy, low-fat menu options – there are salads and sandwiches, smoothies (with yoghurt and honey) and a range of coffees on offer.

The decaf latte is quite okay: there’s no decaf grinder – a sealed container sits near the coffee machine instead. There’s a thick head of foam on the top of the coffee, but it’s not an amazing cup.

One of those places where I wish I could try the caffeinated coffee instead. Anyone tried it and cares to comment?
