Review of The Coffee Club on Halswell by duffyd on Wed, 11 Oct 2006:

Modern and comfortable atmosphere. A little expensive, $4 for a moccachino in a glass, $3.50 for a flat white (their website says otherwise but these prices are incorrect). Coffee was a little watery and a bit too milky. Service was prompt and pleasant.

If you enjoy good quality coffee, I wouldn't recommend going here as the coffee is average at best.


Review of Cargo Coffee Co Ltd by duffyd on Tue, 19 Apr 2011:

Had a coffee here last week and it was expensive (small flat white was $4), bitter and altogether awful. Go up the road to Atomic Coffee or down the road to Ben Cafe for much better value-for-money.


Review of Ben by duffyd on Tue, 19 Apr 2011:

Great coffee! Finally found something approaching the quality of coffee I was used to in Christchurch (Lyttelton Coffee anyone?) and a great eclectic atmosphere. A real 'coffee otaku' house :)
