Koffees & Kream – Calderwood Street

WP_20150504_026We’d passed this place a few times on the bus and so had added to our ‘to do’ list, and now we have done it we don’t have to do it again.

I had a decaf latte and a slice of chocolate cake – the selection of cakes was lacking – whilst Kerry had a flat white and a cheeseburger with chips. The menu did have quite a lot of variety. My coffee wasWP_20150504_019 okay, a little too milky but drinkable. The chocolate cake was nice, it didn’t taste very homemade, and looking at the picture it does look a bit too tidy! I love frosting through so it kept me happy for a while.

Kerry’s coffee was okay, nothing special but at least not too bitter this time around. When her burger arrived I was shocked, it did look homemade, by that I mean I could have gone to a supermarket and bought the ingredients for 8 of them for about £2 – processed cheese slice, basic burger, and basic bun. The chips were equally basic, not very warm either, maybe needed 5 minutes more cooking, then putting in a bin with the burger.

The decor is interesting, but felt forced, the chalk board effect wall was odd, could have been cool without the massive keyhole image – which has a toilet included but ends up looking a bit naff. The dripping tap light fitting as different and a bit of fun, the less said about the wallpaper behind it the better.


Suffice to say we wont be going back, not often (never) do I not take up the option of a loyalty card but there was no point in this case. The best way to sum it up is to loo at the first picture, the sign looks quite cool, but it’s had a vinyl addition that is usually used by a certain type of establishment – whether this was through new ownership or to aim at the locals who are more processed chicken and chips than latte and a pain au choclat I do not not know, or care.
