Review of Yellow Rocket Northlands by May on Mon, 16 Mar 2009:

Well..... I actually went into the cafe for a bagel and a coffee.
Was put off getting a bagel when I saw the fly buzzing around them and landing on the bagels.
I mentioned this to the lady working and she just said Yes. Basically the cabinet they are in has no door, hence the flies! I know its summer and all but a door would have prevented the fly issue.

Now to make things worst the coffee was BAD! It was weak and the milk was well over heated to burning point.... This totally has put me off Yellow Rocket Northlands! :(

Tried a small takeaway cappuccino - $3.20.

The foam on top was excellent; it had the right texture, and had a decent coffee flavour without being bitter.

I had high hopes for this cup ... but unfortunately the coffee underneath was different. It was way too hot at first, and after it cooled down it tasted of burnt milk and was a bit weak and watery.

It was drinkable, but not that great overall.
