If you follow my Instagram feed, you’ll know that I am forever banging on about how important supporting local business and produce is to me and also, just how much coffee I drink. Well, seeing as though “Our cafe” (that’s what OB calls it) is run by a hot, young, local couple and they happen to make my favourite beverage…..coffee, duh, and just the way I like it, I thought I’d give you a little local insight into the swinging little corner shop that is ‘dbl Ristretto’.
I visit at least five times a week and very often have to talk myself out of my second cup on the way home. It’s tough, though and I often cave. I carry a little polka dot reusable coffee cup with me everywhere I go and I love that at “Our Cafe”, any one of the staff just has to see my cup and they know how to fill it.
Seb took us out for our coffee (and milkshake) this morning and, as usual, the place was a hive of activity. I love all the quirky and cool people that frequent this coffee shop. It’s a great place to sit and people watch. Tell me I’m not the only one who classifies that as an actual activity?! It totally is.
OB loves that he can draw on the shop-length chalkboard wall and that the staff often draw pictures for him on his milkshake cup.
The coffee is the bloody awesome, the staff are friendly (and all rather good looking..can’t hurt) and they also give all of their tips to a nominated charity that changes each month, many of which are local. There’s that word again.
I love seeing an independent, well executed local business do well. Dbl Ristretto has me, hook, line and sinker. Oh, it’s in Springwood in the beautiful Blue Mountains, NSW. That detail is kind of important, isn’t it? 😉
Peace and Coffee.
