Review of Fresco Espresso Cafe by Mish on Fri, 27 Oct 2006:

whenever i buy a coffee, there is something i dont like about it, too bitter, too hot, burnt coffee etc etc, but not at Fresco!!
i try to get to Fresco almost every week, usually more than twice a week, and i am astounded by the consistency of the taste of their coffee. it is always perfect. there is never anything wrong with it. i am happy to reccomend this cafe to anybody who wants good coffee!

Fresco is on Lambton Quay, located above The Body Shop and accessed via the escalator inside The Body Shop. It is always a busy cafe but there are plenty of tables and it is usually possible to get a seat even during the busy lunch rush.

The coffee is excellent, well made and presented with care. Service is fairly quick and drinks are hot. Food is good and they will make fresh sandwiches as required. Price for a panini and latte was $11.00 (as at 4th May 2006).

The connection to CafeNet is quite fast and makes for easy surfing.

Overall, the coffee rates as a 8 1\2 out of 10.
