When the coffee bar here is in full swing, it's like the floor of the New York Stock Exchange. Grind, grind, grind! Sell, sell, sell! Outside, dozens of dressed to-the-nines brunchers wait patiently on the lawn to land a coveted table in the impeccably designed space. The 5 Senses coffee is served with utmost care, including a house blend, single origins, filter and cold filter options – all excellent. The seasonal menu is right on-trend, from decadent chilli scrambled eggs with earthy mushrooms and goat's curd to sublime blueberry and ricotta hotcakes. Weekends are crazy: even this slickest of operations struggles to cope with the crowds.
