There are loads of coffee clubs around, and, as you may expect from a chain, they’re all much of a muchness. This one is located in one of the many walkway intersections in Westfield.
Being in the intersection is a bit different to being alongside the intersection (as Café Siena is, for example). It feels a little exposed, and this is emphasised by the slightly raised platform where I was seated. My preference is for seclusion, but then again, I don’t like people…
I have heard that free babyccinos used to be common. This may be true, but I had no need of them until a few months ago. They are definitely a profit-making venture nowadays, but it is refreshing to see that they can still be free in chain coffee shops. The babyccino can be had with a marshmallow, but I am not sure whether they charge for that as we avoid excess sugar.
All in all, I enjoyed my time at the Coffee Club. I got there at about 8.45, and as the crowds raced past, it was good not to be overwhelmed by the noise, as I had expected. Other, more extrovert people will probably enjoy it even more.
