FORGET working here if you like cafesI worked at Kerrisdale location, the manager/owner bought the franchise with no prior experience in the field.Just as a few tips, if you like coffee or hospitality industry, do not work here because you will end up hating it.The manager has no idea what is a cafe experience, no one is trained how to make a proper or even standard espresso.Honestly in the area, no one can make a worse coffee than this place, try it and you’ll see.If you’re looking for training and experience, this is not the place as you’ll end up wasting your time and not learning anything.The job environment is not friendly, I never felt like I belonged to a team while I was working there.And you might apply for a barista job, but end up with washing the dishes and the bathrooms.Cafes should be a chill place to work and you should enjoy your time working in there, don’t ruin it for yourself.Oh and for reference I have over 2 years of experience working in Melbourne as Barista/supervisor, you can believe me or try it for yourself.

Fun, creative, challenging place to workAlways fun and engaging. The team is fun and easy going, and has a chill, relaxed, welcoming vibe. Amazing coffee, and the focus is always on the art and craft of specialty coffee.
don't work here if you care about work-life balance and relationship with coworkersThe management system is awful. not organized. They just wanna use you to fill the roles. They don't care about workers enough. Some coworkers are mean.
Nice people, huge turnoverMinimum wage pay, which is to be expected. Had about three separate managers in just 6 months of working there. Huge emphasis on "waste reduction" to lower costs, rather than incentivizing trained employees to stay with the company.
