Many of us would have driven past it on the way to uni and not blinked twice. Espresso royale, a glossy red shop tucked amongst the organic shops on Magill Road offers a service that is hard to find in Australia. Time stands still in this quaint coffee shop. The warmth emanates from inside as soon as you open the door and step inside. Once seated the only way to describe the atmosphere is like having coffee whilst sitting in your grandma’s kitchen. You can choose between the long lounge and kitchen table or the smaller more intimate seats that face onto Magill Road and admire the mixed collection of old treasure that line the walls while you enjoy your coffee. The baristas whip up some of the smoothest coffee in town and always do so with a smile. The milk is not quite hot enough if you like to savour your coffee slowly, but the glowing feel inside the shop is enough to keep you in place. Espresso Royal also sells organic whole coffee beans, organic milk, juice and other goodies that would accompany your coffee nicely. During the week is the best time to stop in as the weekends can get quite busy in this small coffee shop.
