Since converting to drinking black coffee, I have learnt to appreciate even more the art of good coffee. Cue in Dose Espresso where Sam Gabrielan who owns the boutique roasting company Di Gabriel. He is a coffee judge and former chairperson of the Australian Barista Guild, if he doesn’t know good coffee, I don’t know who else will.
Dose Espresso shares the same address as High St Bistro and The Italian where the cafe oozes comfort with long wooden tables and assortment of different coffee apparatus which belongs in a science lab. The place is packed early on with families enjoying the paper (plenty of room for the kiddies to run around), several morning bike riders and couples out for their daily exercise, all stopping by for the one thing.
The menu offered is no fuss divided into breakfast and lunch options. Mr Dough had the brekkie toast. The schiacciata was deliciously crunchy when toasted with stringy cheddar cheese pulling apart upon each bite leaving the mouth.
I opted for a vegetarian option of crushed avocado with pan-fried haloumi adding the saltness to the creamy avocado. The basil pesto on the sourdough added the little extra specialness to the toast.
When I left, I found an excuse to come here every weekend as Harris Farm is right next door. So I can complete my grocery shopping and indulge on coffee, all in the one place!
