Kingswood Review

A recent trip to World Square may have had you notice this reasonably new espresso bar. Perched just at the George Street entrance, the wide and open wooden exterior is hard to miss.

The decor, music, coffee machine’s and even the staff’s clothing all support a classic fifties bar theme. Kingswood does this quite well, making it stand out easily. The lack of dedicated seating, however, means that you can only really enjoy the atmosphere while you order and wait.
The coffee itself, brewed from Sensory Lab beans, is good, not amazing. But like most of the coffee shops down this end of town, is opts for $3.50 price tag. Better coffee can be found around the cbd for $3.
Kingswood focuses mainly on coffee; iced and filter, etc are also available, but other than that, a small selection of pastries are available for $4.50 each, including some oddly-shaped croissants that have outer layers so crispy and flakey that they are rather reminiscent of a French Madeline.

Atmosphere: 4/5
Quality: 3/5
Value: 3/5
Overall: 7/10
