As a rule of thumb to me, wherever I find the coffee places have their own roasters, the coffee that they serve would not let me down. This gut feeling again proved to be definitely correct when I visited the Black Sheep the second time. It was early Saturday morning (I did it on purpose to secure a parking spot off the road, there was not many customers. Walked in and felt the relaxing vibe. Service was attentive and passionate. Took a seat facing the road and indulged in enjoying the smooth and strong coffee with perfectly matching taste to my palate is always the wonder moment to me. Thanks for the Black Sheep....

Needed a place to work and also enjoy a nibble and a drink. I love the fact that it is located in a quiet but industrial setting in the heart of woolloongabba, and still so peaceful! They have a cute selection of baked goods, amazing coffee brews and teas!!! I love that I was able to hook up to wifi and plug my laptop in so I can be situated here for the day. The staff are friendly and even gave a me a nice Tea-education on how their teas are formulated for a special taste and experience. Try the jasmine pearl tea!!!

Going from a fixture at the Rocklea Markets, to concrete locations right in the industrial heart of Wooloongabba, Black Sheep has emerged as a favourite among the residents of Brisbane. When word is strong enough, no number of turns down backstreets will be able to hide it. This proves itself time and again with their chosen outlet. Taking cues from similar coffee houses, the design is decidedly simple and minimalistic - even down to the lack of signage. Only looking closely is it apparent that you have found the right place. This is practically in a warehouse, hidden after hours by a roller door. You could yell and here your echo if you were the only person inside. All sorts of crude seating is around the place, think of having wooden crates as tables, sitting on bar stools and a few higher tables as well. They offer several types of coffee blends, and modes of drinking the beverage. Several grinders adorn the counter, and specialty coffees including V80 are available. Both hot and cold options can be ordered, and from memory they might have had teas and juices. Additionally, a few choices for freshly baked sweets to go on the side are also offered - cakes, pastries and whatnot. Those wanting to try the coffee at home, beans are available for retail to take home. Overall, it should sound like Black Sheep is a pretty complete place. Well...... Let's get to that. Naturally, if there is a new coffee place that is either local or suddenly getting a good amount of accolades, then my dining buddy is all ears. One of the sources he checks regularly is website Beanhunter's top 10 places (in Brisbane, of course). This place popped up all of a sudden in the top 10, so it was more or less off to try it. One morning, that's what we did. Not having had breakfast that day, as well as getting the coffee order in I decided to smuggle something a little sweet to go with it. What looked the best was a mud-cupcake. This part of the meal was really good. The texture of the cake was soft, and the icing on it was thick. It contained one strong, semi-dark chocolate flavour and the entire small morsel was satisfying unto itself. Any present sugar craving would be well satiated after eating it. It isn't on the menu directly, but hearsay will tell of this secret menu item: the 1+1. This is an espresso, plus choice of milk-based coffee. I went with a piccolo. So, in trying both to get a sense of the flavours between them and....... I honestly couldn't get anything out of it. To be fair, on the piccolo the milk was steamed perfectly and I did like the texture of it - if it had a robust blend accompanying it, this would have been fantastic. However, the lack of any sort of jolt and mere flavour of notes made this probably ones of the worst coffees that I have had in ages. What the hell happened? Especially considering this place was teeming with customers, and it is a coffee roaster of all things. Sorry, often I would be able to critique a coffee and its flavours - even in having the same order many times. However, when something does not have much to go by - there is not much to talk about. Especially considering how highly it was rated on the website Beanhunter, this turned out to be one of the most disappointing coffee places - and especially so roasting houses - that I have tried. If two coffees side to side are not perking me up at the end, then there is definitely something not being done right or that they used a bad blend. Either way that it can be cut, I will say that this did not meet expectations. The flavour of the coffee was almost non-existent, it was way too weak even by average preferences and there could have been some more enthusiasm from the baristas for their craft. To put it another way, I dub this place a dud. N.B. It cannot be because of a bad product, since in the meantime I have visited somewhere which offered a blend from Black Sheep as an option for coffee, and it was quite good. Since this is the mothership for the product, the staff here will have to step up their game.

If you enjoy a good cup of coffee, I recommend that you give Black sheep coffee a try, you won’t be disappointed. The coffee itself was def above the average and quite to my appeal. The staff were welcoming and warm, the place radiated a cozy and relaxing vibe. It is good to either grab a seat and enjoy the coffee there or have it as a takeaway.

Have not been back for a year. Remember I could only have take away croissant last time and I promised myself to dine in after the lock down.Revisited it yesterday and found it was not as busy as before. When I approached the counter, the first thing that drew my attention was those croissant sitting on the counter. Therefore, I settled with a flat white and an almond croissant.Coffee was no doubt a good one, whereas, the almond croissant was slightly too hard in texture.Overall, the brekkie was decentRating: rating: Jun May

they think I could have taken away croissant only last time, and I promised to dive after the lock. checked it yesterday and didn't find it as busy as before. When I approached the counter, the first thing that had directed my attention to the croissant sitting on the counter was that I let myself down with a flat white and a mandel croissant. coffee was undoubtedly a good one while the mandel croissant was a bit too hard in the texture. overall the brekkie was decent rating: 4.5/5 previous rating: 4/5 jun 2020; 4/5 mai 2019

On the entrance level of Hotel Chino is Chino. Taking the translation of Wooloongabba (the meeting place) to heart, that is what it aims to do whether it be guests at the hotel or residents nearby, there is something that is accomodating and close for this quiet little place. Dimmi was doing the rounds again, releasing a place to have 50% off the total bill and this time around it was Hotel Chinos. Booking it in, this time around my housemate/dining buddy opted for it to be a breakfast meal since some of the stuff sounded quite unusual. Despite the rainy weather that morning, it was off to here on a weekend morning for Chino's. This is one of the most mixed I have been about a place in quite a while. There were elements of competency but it never fully held together as it should have done so. <br> <br> Starting off though, the owner/chef Alex saw us out there with the rain and let us in. That was a good start to the experience. He welcomed us and was pointing us to take a seat. Little was wrong with the service regarding him; he was a decent enough fellow. That is a bit more than can be said about the waitstaff. When it comes to the service, there needs to be a bit more training there. In saying that, there was nothing overtly terrible with how we were served, and when the attention was needed but ultimately it was bare minimum that the young lady seemed to do with customer service. It does not take a veteran to know that it is the little touches that really add up to a place. For example, filling up the water - or even getting water for the clients without asking is a good start. A top up here and there is also good. Additionally, she didn't make the effort to go up and ask how the meal was. Just a word to Alex, if this place is going to remain in the mind of the client base, having service that is attentive and forthright is going to make it more memorable and add to the place. It is all about little gestures such as a few that I mentioned just before hand, but those can really cumulate. <br> <br> Depending on what time of day you come here, the menu will be different. Breakfast is a range of wholesome and fairly substantial choices, having a bit of everything to please the most people possible. That is from toast to health food, to a full on meal, it is all there. Dinner and lunch is a bunch of plates, with tapas style stuff on small plates and big pieces of meat on larger plates. For that hotel sort of restaurant; it has what is to be expected. <br> <br> As usual when it comes to the meal, coffee was the first order of business. With me that means doppio. They use one blend that I have not seen before, which is Abrisca. From this one coffee, I can say that it is quite good. The strength of the buzz is fairly medium, and the beans have a good depth and range of flavour - sort of on a chocolatey note - and that it was a well-extracted shot making a nice cup of brew. <br> <br> I was going to order something else before the waitress mentioned a special that was not on the menu. This was kind of a big breakfast that consisted of bacon, eggs, sausage, tomato, mushrooms and toast, plus I asked for some black pudding as well (it was on what I was going to order). For the most part, I thought it was okay. The black pudding was delicious, with a soft texture and slightly dark flavour - you either like it or you don't, and my sentiments is that a Full English breakfast must have it. The sausages were tender, and the bacon well cooked with a tad bit of crispness to it. With the hash browns, they were kind of standard - obviously gotten from a packet and I feel the egg might have been a bit overcooked. Both the tomatoes and mushrooms were fresh and tasty, adding a good bit of variety to the plate. <br> <br> Not having had it for ... let's say longer than I have been alive, my dining buddy looked at lamb's fry and thought to give it another try. Getting to the end of it, he told me that there was a reason that he had not had it all that time - it is not a pleasant cut of meat. I didn't think it was as bad as he was making it out to be, but the texture was certainly quite off. It was not really chewy or tender or whatnot - just a bit of an off-cut used as budgeting. There is not a whole lot of appeal with lamb's fry, so I will suggest 86 it for the future. <br> <br> This place does have some elements of being good, and as per usual I want to like it as much as it can be. The major issues that I have with it did relate to a slack standard of customer service, and also about what Chef Alex wants this place to be. I am merely postulating and guesstimating that this is English cuisine, as it has a number of old classic English dishes though that is not been made clear. I do not whether to say it is off to a good start or not; what is definitely apparent is that they need a bit more engagement with the clientele and try to find what could work for them, then carve an identity out from that. Basically, it can do a whole lot better than it is currently doing and needs to act on it pronto.
