Our first review!

I'm so excited. I Googled "Coffee to the People" today and found our first review. The review was posted online at Melbourne Cafe Reviews by John Martin (thanks, whoever you are) on the 22nd of August. We received a rating of 17 out of 20 and here's what he said:

Very cool, laidback, spacious. Small circular wooden tables painted pink. Comfy lounges in alcove. Orange and pink walls. Olive ceiling. Light floods in during the summer afternoon. People sit at laptops - one guy writes in a notebook. A sign is set in our table, "Not in our name. No ware on Iraq. No war on the world." Other
signs on walls - "Children should be seen and heard and believed," "Little by little one walks far," "It is only to the individual a soul is given."

I had a short black, $1.50. All coffees come in "small" (12 oz) "medium" (16 oz) or "large" (20 oz) and priced accordingly. Only fair trade coffee is used. My s.b.
was strong in flavour, good crema, good temperature.

Only had a choc chip cookie for $1.50. This was large, soft, fresh and good val. Snacks were also available, but we only came for a coffee.

You order and pay at the counter. You collect your own food and beverage. Costs as above. Excellent value.

Needless to say, we are very proud.
