Briscola Café – This place has always been a personal favourite, simply because the staff are so friendly and personable. It’s recently undergone an internal refurbishment, and now boasts a larger indoor seating area, which makes grabbing lunch with a classmate slightly less intimate.
While their baristas have excellent coffee-making skills (Porta Via, take note), their standard blend can be a tad boring flavour-wise. But the coffee is generally strong, and the food fresh and reasonably priced. Their homemade soups during the cold winter months are a guaranteed pick-me-up for the inevitable cold you’re going to catch from the classmates you essentially live with in the student study area.
SCORE: 3/5 coffee beans.
