Le Petit Cafe - Britomart

Down in the depths of the CBD lies one of those little silver futuristic style shoeboxes. There are a few dotted around, one has a forex set up, another sells "newspapers and candy" - very NYC!

One however, just down from the Britomart Transport Centre is a coffee kiosk. Usually operated by two, Le Petit Cafe produces amazing things. Granted they use Vittoria which is not usually first pick for me, but surprisingly they have managed to take the best bits from the bean to produce a drinkable if not slightly lovely first shot.

I am a firm believer in the service maketh the cup too. We can sometimes turn a blind eye to the unorthodox when we receive outstanding service and the team at Le Petit nail it every time. They remember the way I like my cappucino, (not exactly rocket science, but slightly unusual I suppose), when less busy even start making it before I get there. Both of the team could have had the roughest morning/day ever, but you'd never know because they have perfected the art of putting on a brave face and making their customers their first priority.

If you happen to be wandering around Britomart.. give them a go. Well worth it.
