Blake’s Coffee house @ Grey Street


IMG_0099.JPGA slight in delay writing this review of Blake’s coffee house, we visited here back in mid December. We all ate food here and they have a great selection. The decor is a little dated, but Blake’s has been here for years and is a bit of an institution in Newcastle.

IMG_0098.JPGAs usual we tried the flat white

Taste 5.5/10

Flavour 5.5/10

Aroma 3/9

Temperature 2/3

Appearance 2.25/3

Consistency 2.5/3

Smoothness 7/10

Total 27.75/50

So this scores a strong 3 beans on our scale

IMG_0058.PNGYou will see from the scores that the coffee was presented well and was pretty smooth, but the taste flavour and aroma was lacking something a bit more special. A couple have us have been back since and tried the special coffee for extra cost and it was much better, but we have always reviewed the standard flat white. So overall this is in he pack with the other average coffees, but if you also want food definitely pay a visit to Blake’s.
