|Coffee turnaround:||9 minutes|
I had this coffee with my mate Sam and our flat whites came out like chalk and cheese (take a look at the pic above). My froth was smooth and dark and the coffee had a nutty taste. But Sam’s froth was pale and bubbly and the coffee was too weak.
Coffees were served with little macaroons – score!
The service was not bad. The staff here can be vague and this time they mixed up our coffees giving Sam my soy.
This is one of my favourite places to go to in Surry Hills because it’s colourful and low key. Be prepared to pay a bit extra and also the staff can be a bit too cool for school.
All types of people come to Cafe Lounge. There’s rocker boys with long bleached hair and denim jackets. There’s scenesters and after work trendies.
Palm trees and blue lady paintings line the walls. It can feel a bit like you’re in the basement. I think the best part about it is that you are tucked away from the Slurry mania.
