Another week, another coffee. Not that I’m complaining, of course! I am always on the hunt for new java locales. And with the chilly weather on its way (more consistently, I hope) coffee has never been more comforting and apt. Recently, on a chilly morning stroll; I had come across Felix & Co. Specialty Coffee in Nedlands. Bands of people were waiting within and outside of the venue, engaging in light chatter. Despite this activity, it didn’t deter me from testing out my new discovery.
The interior prides itself on it’s trendy, ‘Melbournian’ décor, with DIY lighting and an abundance of wooden furniture. Tables were minimally decorated with small vases of flowers, conveying a tranquil space. The staff were also a delight, equipped with a welcoming smile, which made you feel appreciated.
I found myself gazing at the menu for a long time, in incredulity, at the limitless array of riveting filter flavours and cold brews available. Seeing words like ‘plum’, ‘nectarine’ and ‘red cherry’ listed under the coffee descriptions made me feel a little uneasy but I decided to take a leap of faith and ordered a regular ‘La Mirella’ Costa Rica (caramel, nectarine and sweet cocoa) Espresso ($4). The nectarine had a sweet undertone that collaborated with the caramel and cocoa overlay.
Felix & Co. also serves a range of nibbles to accompany the drinks, such as muffins, slices and toasties. I ordered a ham, cheese and Dijon toastie ($6), in which, the Dijon served as a palatable supplement to the classic ham and cheese flavour fusion.
After finishing my toastie, I left the venue, with my hand wrapped around the paper cup of much needed nourishment and future plans to visit Felix & Co. Specialty Coffees. This little café is definitely one to look out for.
