Review of Columbus (The Palms) by java on Fri, 24 Oct 2008:

I also had to experience what could only be described as warm milk, under the name of a flat white, but it was served with a side dish of attitude that complimented the whole horrible experience. Upon complaining I was brought another cup of tepid light brown milk that had at some stage picked up an aroma of spent coffee grinds. This is unfortunate as the coffees served at Westfield columbus have been consistently good.


Review of Columbus (The Palms) by blondenaturally on Sat, 19 Jul 2008:

I was totally disappointed with their coffee, I asked for a small flat white and my friend had a long black. What they brought to our table hardly fitted those descriptions, the small flat white was in what I would call a latte cup and by no means small so instead of getting a good coffee hit I got a milky coffee flavoured drink. My friend's long black couldn't have been any worse if it was instant - poured to fill the cup it was undrinkable. It was a shame cos we were both desperate for a coffee but neither of us could drink them.
