Our Coffee Alley serves specialist blends and Single Origin coffee, roasted on site by Espresso Workshop. Starting with the best quality beans available, we roast in small batches for consistency and freshness. 


We use different brewing methods with our roasts to ensure your coffee reflects the quality and complexity of flavour in the beans. Try one of our coffee tasting options with your brunch, and ask one of our specialist baristas about the at-home brewing equipment. You'll be a pro in no time.
