Expert Review

This is a tranquil gem in the middle of busy Midtown, so no wonder it’s rammed with office workers at lunchtime. Here the skilled baristas take coffee extremely seriously. With their La Marzocco Strada, V-60 pour-over and Kyoto dripper… all these high-end coffee machines in one small coffee shop, sounds pretty serious, doesn’t it? Besides the impressive list of equipment, Culture can boast some pretty famous coffee beans too, such as Intelligentsia, Stumptown, Grumpy, PT’s and San Francisco Sightglass Coffee and Four Barrell Coffee. Their signature espresso-based drink is a flat white, which is top notch and will impress even a native Australian. The pastries in the display cabinet are delish too, especially the chocolate chunk cookies - and there are plenty of breakfast dishes to start off your day right. The place itself is very modern and colorful, a bit quaint, and will surely boost your mood - just as their aromatic coffee will boost your energy!

If you turn your back to the window, you forget the throng of tourists, stuffed shirts and other unsavory characters. It ain't bad here at all.
