Umami Coffee. 10A Darcy St, Parramatta. Block out the walk past the train line at Parramatta and you could see yourself in a lane way cafe in Melbourne: this is a good fit-out, and one with attention to detail on the quirky details of interior design.
They’ve made a lot of a tiny space – I’m not sure I’ve seen a smaller sink for the self-serve water!
The staff are knowledgeable about their product – we have a long chat about whether to try the house blend as a long black or a macchiato, and they’re only too happy to add in a bit of milk when I realise they’re right, and its strength (tailored for their most popular coffee – a large flat white) is too great without the milk.
Ooh I've been to Circa but not Three Ropes.. Which gets the best vote? Do you know how long Three Ropes has been going for?
Hey Lenny, I didn't try enough of the coffee at three ropes to do a full comparison: they're comparable, but Circa has the better overall experience.
I think three ropes has been going at least a year – how did Parramatta get to have such good places with so little fuss?
