Overall comments: 

The cafe staff were heaps friendly – I think there were around three staff people – one at the back, one at the register when people needed to pay, and one who was mainly serving customers.

The use of milk crates as chairs at the end of hallway that The Wedge Expresso operates in(yes it’s like a narrow corridor) is cool because recycling or should I say upcycling?

I think they used unsweetened coconut milk /cream for the coconut rice dish because it didn’t taste sweet apart from when passionfruit and the agave syrup was mixed in. However, speculating that they used unsweetened coconut milk or coconut cream meant that there was still the aroma of coconut minus the guilt of consuming added sugars commonly used in coconut milk. Also, they weren’t stingy with seasonal fruit: the strawberries were plump and unbruised as with the pear and the passionfruit.

Their menu is one of the most interesting out of the menus I’ve read so far from brunch places. If you check our their menu online, in particular the following items, the way in which the words are worded flow easy – I think a well worded menu really adds to an overall impression of eateries.

  • Seasonal ice tea brewed in house using Tea Craft blends. Served over ice with a slice 6.5
  • Iced milo Heaps on top, heaps on the bottom with milk and ice cream in between 6.5
