Haven Coffee Review

This relatively new cafe has a nautical cross Scando theme, with rustic white wood complementing rope features, all pulled together in a predominantly minimalist style and topped off with navy blue detailing. It’s spacious, well-lit and inviting. The staff are polite, sincere and accommodating. 

The coffee is meant as the main draw card here. Not only does Haven boast world standard baristaring, but also tailored coffee. In your coffee you can choose levels of acidity, after taste, aroma, sweetness, body as well as different blends/flavours (ie rich and nutty, fruity, etc.).
The coffee is good. Whether you’re after a late, flat white, espresso, cold brew or espresso, all offerings are smooth and solid.
The food can be described most accurately as cafe staples but with gourmet and original twists. Think roasted plum parfait with coconut sago for breakfast or braised lamb shoulder with pickled cabbage salad for lunch. Most meals are within the $12-20 range and given the size and quality, that’s pretty darn good.
