Review of Brio Cafe by Coffee Monster on Wed, 26 Apr 2006:

Brio Cafe used to be called High St Cafe. It's recently had a change of ownership (early February, if the liquor license plaque is anything to go by). I dropped in for the first time this morning, and had a double espresso, made by one of the new owners.

I'm still not good at judging espressos, but this one seemed pretty good.
