The Coffin, from the side, with custom wooden group handles
Proud Mary, Collingwood for brunch:
Love the mix of natural materials in this place. The right mix of styles for this sleek interior... warm brick, the red tempered by the grey-black of the polished cement floor, the custom made counter and tables, the none-too-rustic decor...

And of course, the machinery here is impressive... a clover™, a AUD$40k Synesso Hydra, syphons, 6 large Mazzer coffee grinders, exclusive Inker cups in a knockout blue, brilliant touch of the orange retro giant lamp and a Giesen roaster (of course!)...

This is what I WANT TO DO myself ages ago if we had a cafe! Herbs grown in little planters on each table.
Andrew's meal... chorizo sausages were delish! And Andrew loved the scrambled eggs, done properly.
My meal, balsamic mushrooms on toast.
Hannah chowing down on eggs on toast.
Superlong Synesso coffee machine, nicknamed the Coffin... because it's super long. Large coffee machines are three group... this one's SIX group! Plus super exclusive coffee cups, by Inker
Highly spec-ed out coffee group handles as door handles
