Was driving through Paramatta with Iron Fist and we decided to take a pit stop and re-caffeinate to get through the afternoon. Having heard about the locally popular hole in the wall cafe, Circa, we decided to give them a try.
Had we not been looking specifically for the store, we would definitely have missed it. Situated in a very inconspicuous corner of a building, the signage resembled graffiti which I would have otherwise overlooked had it not been for the considerable amount of people there. Seating was available, but sadly it was a full house, so we got our order takeaway.
Got my usual cappuccino with no sugar. It definitely was strong enough to provide the much needed caffeine hit and had a body to it without being overly acidic, but with a slight bitterness that I appreciated, though the milk could have been a little creamier.
I also got a croissant to have take away. Although I asked for it toasted, and waited quite a while, it was only mildly warm. The croissant tasted a little stale, with a hard crusty exterior and interior, despite the obvious layering, which was quite a shame.
Price Range: Under $10pp
