Shop G217, Westfield Shoppingtown, Doncaster, VIC, 3108
Shopped-out fashionistas will find a caffeine hit here that’s a cut above the usual shopping-centre offerings. This cafe takes coffee seriously: as well as grinding and roasting its own beans, The Coffee Hit sells beans, utensils and books.
Situated in a light-filled atrium near upmarket grocery stores, Coffee Hit has a classy fit-out of dark timber furniture, with space for prams and shopping bags. There’s sandwiches and cakes for sale, but the coffee is the main attraction -and a genuine outer-suburban rival to inner-city institutions.
My very short espresso has an intense, spicy aroma that fills the mouth but fades quickly. In a long black, the initial tobacco aroma fades into a mellow, slightly earthy taste that doesn’t linger, while the latte, full of caramel and nuts, is an easy-sipping palate pleaser. If only my credit card could recharge so easily.
