It’s not every day a café’s burger draws you in to try their coffee but with our latest Coffee Club venture that is exactly what happened.

A couple of weeks ago one of my work besties brought a takeaway burger for lunch and offered me a piece. If I could describe the feeling when I first tasted it, it would be that bit in The Wizard of Oz where everything is black and white and then she wakes up in Oz and it’s all colourful and amazing. That is how good it was. And as a Fat Kid, that means a lot.

So when I found out they also open up early, I thought why not give it a try. Latitude33 is located on uber-cool Bree Street. So I’m not gonna lie I was expecting a whole bunch of the so-hip-it-hurts crowd but perhaps we got there a little too early. Or maybe they’ve already moved on, they’re that cool. The crowd was actually nice and mixed and we sat next to a group of businessmen who always have a breakfast date there every Friday. It’s like a grownup version of coffee club.

Anyway back to the coffee. We ordered some lattes, some Americanos and a soy latte. The feedback was mixed. I enjoyed my latte but those having the Americano and soy latte were not as pleased.

The décor on the other hand we all agreed was awesome. If you like laid-back and comfy this is a the place. If you like surfing, this is your mecca. The café has a massive Bali influence and there’s so much more upstairs. That’s right, there’s an upstairs area that sells clothes and art. 

If you wanna go and try the coffee and report back, please let me know. I’m hoping it was just an off day. If you wanna go and have a burger, please call me. I will not hesitate.

Ex-Oh! Ex-Oh! 


  1. why didn't you have a burger? and if you do, why is it so good? i can almost smell it from the description "she wakes up in Oz and it’s all colourful and amazing. That is how good it was"

    makes me hungry... should be 'latte'tude, pity though... is it a restaurant, cafe or coffee bar (with food) you don't make it clear

    1. It was 7 in the morning, surprisingly I'm not one of those peeps who can eat anything for breakfast. If i go back at lunch I will no doubt order one. They are so flavoursome that I would recommend them to anyone.

      It's more of a cafe than a restaurant. Think it's about the whole experience so food, clothes, art are all covered and is sold as such. Not really sold as just a 'cafe' or just a clothing store.

      If you can, pop in and let me know how you found it.

    2. ok true a bit early for a burger. sounds interesting though, more interested in the food... perhaps when i venture into town next i will...


Whoop! There It Is!
