    I've visited Bubalu many times since it opened earlier this year. It works very well for me. The coffee is great. The food is very good (although I haven't tried the new menu yet). Free internet (which is usually important to me). And the staff are great. Mike, the owner, is working really hard to get Bubalu pumping. Taking lots of feedback and putting on a good range of classes. The fact that he buys in premium coffee (which has won awards etc etc) shows that he really wants this to be a great little cafe   which it is cranking up to be! [Added 4 Oct 2012 ] Bubalu has continued to be a great place to visit. I am not here frequently enough, but each time I am, I am pleased and impressed. Great smoothies, excellent coffees, the food that I've tried has been tasty, and the atmosphere is very good. Would thoroughly recommend the place. Oh, and free tinterweb. Very good ta.
