A couple of weeks ago I wanted to try the newly opened coffee shop which is part of Open Flame Kitchen restaurant called BRW Coffee.
We went there on Friday afternoon around 5pm and as expected it was crowded but what wasn’t expected is that the staff told us that we have to wait 3 hours for a table just to drink coffee! I was really astonished. I told them it’s just coffee and we want to sit outside not inside the restaurant. They told us the tables outside are part of the restaurant! As if I didn’t know that!!!! Why haven’t they separated the coffee shop from the restaurant?!
Anyways, we left then came back on a weekday which was Monday I believe and they also told me I have to wait 30 minutes until a table is available, I said fine, I can do window shopping in 30 minutes.
I came back and they called me and gave me a table outside the restaurant. I ordered Cortado coffee and Caramel Donuts. The order arrived immediately, it didn’t take time to prepare it. Thank god, the busyness of the place didn’t affect the coffee shop. Then I ordered the Iced Cube Latte.
All in all, I loved the experience, loved the kinds of coffee I tried, loved the service, the atmosphere and the prices were very reasonable. But I wouldn’t come back to enjoy coffee on a table because it will take a lot of time to be seated. I’d go back to have coffee to go.
