The coffee is the star of the joint. As long as they get my cup of flat white right, I'm a happy customer. If I can spare that 20 minutes on a hectic morning, I'll sit. Otherwise, I'll have to grab a to-go, which works just as well.
I do like to watch the going-ons in the cafe, to see the sorts of people who come in daily and pick their choice brew for the morning. After a while, I recognize the regulars and their favorite cuppa, as well as the faraway tourists who come in based on the map and online recommendations. There're too many annoying Starbucks in town. They've started to offer flat white on the menu. I don't think our Starbucks offer flat white just yet. So I've gamely tried one here. It's almost laughable. It's almost as bad as what I have at home! They should just stick to doing cappuccino dry.
I'm quite amused with the toasties at Flat White. Some days, they come in a slim sharp slices that are almost triangular. On others, they come in wider version that's almost double the size of the slim ones. It doesn't bother me. That's half the fun of not having a metal mould to shape your bread, and doing it manually. I suppose it has alot to do with the person slicing the sandwich. It doesn't exactly come in identical shapes and sizes. The taste differ from day to day, depending on the cheese used.
Life's a little bit like that, isn't it?
