No time for chit chat but really need a coffee? This is the place for a quick fix.
Fabrik is a compact cafe, but has everything you need for a coffee and snack on the run. The menu hosts a variety sandwiches and muffins, and the prices are reasonable.
My espresso is served in an instant, and a burnt-toffee aroma wafts from the cup. The shot delivers a mild berry flavour with sharp acidity that pierces the palate. A macchiato to follow is artistically stained with a little love heart — no plain old dollops of froth here! A velvety crema with lots of little bubbles sits atop a robust body, and the aniseed aftertaste lingers enjoyably.
As if to pre-empt my review, the barista asks how it was — which is always a good sign. And the coffee lives up to the good service.
