Great double espresso. Limited food range, but good. Plus they sell some excellent peanut butter and sourdough bread. Only complaint is they don’t always have pain au chocolat.

I was really amazed. The queue was long, yet my order came very quickly. My coffee was strong and full of flavour and my Turkish spinach and fetta parcel was heated up just right and came with good quality cutlery. There are few seats inside,...but as I was in a hurry, I did not mind sitting outside in the draft.More

Kings and Knaves Espresso, what can I say about this little gem of a place? Thank goodness for its staff, coffee and food! The hot chocolate is the bomb and it’s breakfast slider my King on a morning when I need more than a caffeine...hit. If you haven’t been there, get there..right near Flagstaff Station and give the guys some love as they were recently robbed..More

Great coffee and excellent sandwiches. I had smoked salmon on grain bread, my friend avocado on sour dough, both excellent. We’ll be going back!
