Yesterday I said I would be drinking coffee for a cause today. At participating cafes, $1 per cup of coffee would go towards grassroots services for the homeless. This was enough of a reason to drag myself out of the house. It was a close thing - but, the one day of the year when one of my indulgences is helping others was too good to miss.
I noted all the suitable options yesterday and then chose one of the closest ones today. Although as I nearly fell asleep on the train it could have been a slightly different story. I had heard from a few fellow coffee afficionados (afficionadi, maybe?) that Bunker at Milton was worth a visit. From the station I had to pass a couple of other coffee spots, which surprised me in this unassuming street.
You can't really tell from the photo above, but the clipboards show the filter coffee options, featured coffee options, something else (I knew I should have written these down!) and the special of the day (jaffa).
I arrived just before the rush, so there was minimal wait for my caffeine - I noticed the staff knew many of the names of people who came in just after me, always a nice sign. Another plus was the music and the staff actually knowing musical things ('this performer likes A minor' for example). I felt self-conscious taking photos though, so took the above as surreptitiously as possible, and the below shot after I had left. The man in the photo came out just as I was snapping - sprung!
