When you walk around the streets of Wickham, Tighes Hill, Islington, Carrington and any other suburbs around the inner-city but just outside the hussel-n-bussel you can easily forget how close you are to CBD and relax.
Tucked away ever-so-neatly is one incredible little coffee destination...
Place: Vivid Espresso Address: 14 Milford Street, Islington. Hours: Monday - Saturday: 6am-12:30PM
Why We Love it: The Coffee! Whenever you find a Barista that is clearly passionate about what they are doing (the first time I visited she remade my coffee because she wasn't super confident it was perfect because of a fresh bag of beans) you can usually be sure that the coffee will be on point. It always is at Vivid. It is basically just a coffee spot, not really anything in the way of other snacks (it's not a cafe) but if you love that daily dose of Caffeine in coffee form and live around the area then make a visit a must-do-item on you weekly to-do list!
It's all the little things, as well as the coffee, that make this a space you want to re-visit again and again. To borrow a phrase "It's the Biscotti Moment" and in this case it means the little chocolate covered coffee bean placed lovingly on the lid of the cup. It is the amazingly designed coffee cups it is served in. Most importantly it is the staff that are open and keen to make niceties and genuinely seem interested that make you feel welcome and want that again.
