Don’t let the name of this place fool you. If some intrepid street artist decided to add an “un” to this coffee shop’s sign they’d be doing people a favour.
The Remarkable Bean was doing a brisk business and it’s exterior was littered with local coffee drinkers so I went in expecting something pretty, well, remarkable. Add to it that they roast their own fair trade beans on site and I thought I had lucked into something special as we explored the eastern end of the Beaches.
Unfortunately the espresso was thin, the crema was almost non-existant and I was reminded of my moments of desperation at my old office when I’d settle for a shot from the Second Cup.
I hate saying bad things about a place, and maybe I just got a bad cup, but I don’t think I’ll be going back any time soon.
