James Burt and his team of coffee enthusiasts at Engine Coffee Brewers know what they're about - serving excellent brew with a focused approach. The experience here is simple, accessible, fresh and interesting - just like the coffee.

Instead of offering a long list of beans and blends, Engine only serves the best. At any one time a single origin coffee is used for black coffee, a seasonal blend for white coffee and rotating single origins for filter coffee. Beans on offer rotate based on fanfare and seasonably availability. Here drinkers can trust the barista to create a kick ass cup of coffee and to provide an approachable education on what they are sipping.

The storefront is filled with natural light, warm wood, clean white surfaces and blue accents, and every table offers visitors a bit of information on the coffee that is currently available.

Delicious, homemade bites can be found in the cabinet. Chocolate chip cookies, scones, slices, bagels and cast iron toasties bring the yom factor. The menu is small but every item holds its own with comforting flavours, fresh ingredients and the versatility to complement whatever coffee drink you might choose.

Just like an engine, every tiny detail here is considered and the coffee, food, space and people work together to create a perfectly smooth and simple coffee experience.
