A unique partnership between Harry Grover, Five Senses Coffee (Australia), and the Spa Esprit Group, Common Man Coffee Roasters strives to make top-notch coffee accessible to the general public, in a comfortable, casual bistro setting, along with delicious food and friendly service. Pushing the boundaries and experimenting with various coffee flavour profiles, Common Man Coffee Roasters looks set to forge new paths in the coffee arena.

Ambience at Common Man Coffee Roasters is casual, with bright lights and wooden furniture lending a casual, laid-back vibe to the place. Outdoor dining is available, as is bar counter dining, and Common Man Coffee Roasters generally is buzzing with activity. Coffee is used as the decor theme, and I like that the laboratory apparatus gives the counter a 'science lab' feel.

Service at Common Man Coffee Roasters is friendly, though staff are generally rushing about because of the busy place. But they do give you their full attention when speaking, and don't look distracted. Food is prepared to order, but the wait time is also relatively short. I like that staff seem friendly and chatty.

The speciality at Common Man Coffee Roasters is of course, coffee. Carefully sourced coffee beans are used to make each flavourful cup. But the food available is also decently priced, tasty, and portions are generous. Common Man Coffee Roasters does a rather healthy all day-brunch menu, as most dishes come with loads of salad.

A big sign hangs over the counter, 'Free Coffee And Doughnut For The Unemployed', and I wonder if anyone has yet taken them up on this offer.

The Fluffy Brioche French Toast, Fresh Berries, Premium Maple Syrup & Kapiti Vanilla Ice Cream features an excellent, soft brioche toast, covered in berries and maple syrup, with a side of citrus orange laced vanilla ice cream. Lovely, both as a breakfast item, or as a dessert.

The Green Pea Fritters, 2 Poached Organic Eggs, Crispy Pancetta, Rocket & Balsamic Syrup has 2 green pea fritters topped with softly poached eggs, covered in a salad. Looks really healthy and garden-like, and I loved the unique flavour of the green pea fritters! The eggs were perfectly executed, and I had fun using the fritters to mop up the runny yolk.

Artisinal Coffee is the speciality here, and both the Mocha and Latte are full-bodied and fragrant. The Latte Art is just beautiful and so precise, making each cup look enticing.

Only available during lunch or dinner, the Grilled Chilli Boneless Chicken With Crushed Avocado Salsa And Caramelised Lemon was slightly inconsistent. It seems they grilled the chicken according to thickness, with resulted in a fantastic, juicy piece for the larger slice of chicken, and a slightly dry piece for the smaller slice of chicken. But I loved the fresh avocado salsa! The caramalised lemon juice enhanced the meat with a nice smoky flavour and tangy taste.
