I ordered a soy latte, restraining myself from the tempting sweet-treats in the window and with their eco-friendly cups, you can feel happy about using a take away cup!

To sit – there’s a sneaky upstairs area to get away from the James Street hustle, and spend your Saturday morning sipping down some damn good coffee whilst reading the paper: rain, hail or shine. If you feel like something a little more, try a sweet treat such as pistachio and white chocolate slice, chocolate brownie type of thing (both GF), otherwise mini cannoli, biscuits or macarons are on offer too. For something more substantial there are pastries and sandwich paninis (not GF).
To cool down in the summer, you can buy cold press coffee, which would be just as amazing and if you’re not a coffee drinker there are juices and smoothies too.
As Bellissimo are known for their coffee, they also sell their special blends of freshly ground coffee to take away in case you want to re-live the memory of your sumptuous first sip at home.
Check it out on your lunch break or meet up with a friend to see for yourself what you’re missing out on.
