the green room on high street – Willunga, SA – UNM
2 High Street, Willunga, SA, 5172 – Under New Management
This is my second review of the green room on high street. I felt it needed another go, not because my previous experience was bad – quite the opposite – but it needed a second review because in the last few months it has under gone a change of management and a change in direction. Click HERE for original review and comparison.
So what, other then that aforementioned, has changed – it seems, quite a bit. Gone is the eclectic mix of café come studio come haberdashery come interesting nic-nac come alternative hang out come, and in its place is a fairly typical looking open plan café. Also gone is my favourite Black Mountain Coffee. With plenty of tables and chairs, and now with the addition of a comfy looking couch, the green room looks less willunga and more Unley, O’Connell Street or Hawthorn. Not sure if they have changed the food department – my previous experience wasn’t the best, but today it was just about the coffee.
Latte Quality – Good – It was a little on the weak side, but that could have been something to do with the size of the cup – HUGE – and it was a perfect temperature.
Cost – $3.50 – for a cup which is around the mark. $5.50 for a large takeaway.
Coffee Supplier – Villeré Coffee from neighbouring McLaren Vale/Blewitt Springs.
Fair Trade – No – no mention in store, nor any mention on the Villeré website.
Customer Service – – average – pretty much what you would expect – you go away neither blown away by the experience, nor complaining about it; When I was finally noticed by someone (about 3 mins) I had two people ask to serve me at the same time – however the barista who I stood all of two feet away from, was not feeling talkative – or would even look beyond what she was doing.
Special Notes: Similar to the Coffee Barun, their take away cups are the BioCup brand.
Venue Suitable for:
- Meeting – Quiet Chat – Study and Reflection – As I ventured in on a Farmer’s Market day – the place was pretty quiet (in comparison to last time) and there are plenty of tables both inside and out , and a back garden area for the kids and I am sure it would be a great place for such pastoral activities during the week.
