Sad to say, I share your concern. My “flat white” at Small World Coffee wasn’t a flat white. It was just a milky coffee, and a pretty average one at that.
I’m sure a lot of hard work and money has gone into getting this new coffee shop off the ground, so to launch like this seems anti-climactic. I’d recommend the owners really think about first impressions projected by the signage, their staff and the food selection. It’s not enough just to present a venue and sell coffee and snacks. Vending machines can offer that. Coffee shops need to offer far more to attract regular punters.
@No41Coffee has soul and personality and serves up an excellent flat white, and engages with the community both in-shop and on social media. Small World Coffee could learn so much from this formula and I hope, given time, they will. It’s early days and I’ll be watching reviews over the coming months to see if the place merits a return visit.
A win for those of us who like to relax in a peaceful No 41. More power to Small World Coffee and their play area!
