Not Just Coffee @ Paddington

Sunday, 24/02/13

My original plan on the day was to do window shopping in Paddington & have brunch in my usual place (which didn't happen at the end). As soon I got off the bus (just before Incu store), I get distracted when I saw an A4 poster stuck on a pole advertising 'Not Just Coffee'. Somehow I felt tempted to checkout their where about in the laneway. I did follow the signage and found 'Not Just Coffee'. Entrance was like entering the back of a semi terrace house. The entire place is in grey, has 2 areas (upstairs & downstairs), little yet charming. I personally prefer upstairs area, it is smaller but has homey atmosphere. Whilst upstairs, you can sit outside/ inside ~ sit on the couch whilst zipping your coffee and read your gozz mags/ admiring some of the local artists work (photography/ cards/ other arty stuff). Coz we arrived around 2.30pm ish, we only ordered some light bites + fresh juices. Menu is simple, but they taste great & I can see that they are using really fresh ingredients. I am officially ditching my previous Paddo hangout place (best not to name them ...) and very happy with my latest laneway discovery. Change is good ... =)
