I love maples cafe, the best coffee in putney, campos smooth with no after taste only to be matched with delicious food, it's my local signature breakfast dishes & the Peri peri chicken burger or the steak burger that melts in your mouth delish, the staff always polite, thanks maples.
We have been to Maples a number of times. We enjoyed breakfast, lunch and dinner there. All of our meals were delicious, especially the salmon. The service was professional and the wait staff were attentive at all times. This is a trendy new cafe that adds character to Putney.
Came across this Café by accident trying to avoid the traffic on Victoria Rd. The trendy modern décor is more Eastern Suburbs or Inner City upmarket style. The meal was exceptional as was the coffee. It was great to find Campos coffee which was excellent. Very friendly service added to the experience. It will certainly be on my must return list. Try the cinnamon buns, they are to die for.
This is my new cafe! Love the food! Been here several times and the service is friendly and down to earth! Young gentleman (presumably the owner) is always around and makes a point to chat with customers! Best cinnamon scroll in Australia! Had the Turkish breakfast and it was amazing! And finally a cafe that's serving breakfast that's not just bacon and eggs!
Maples at putney trendy ambient modern great campos coffee. Food excellent relaxed atmosphere great with the kids. Signature dishes & drinks young vibrant staff must try. Teething issues to begin with all sorted new chefs new baristas. Management in control. Great service with a smile!
Oh my God what a unprofessional place. The meals arrived late with a bunch of chopped parsley all over the plate looks disgusting. The old man serving the meals in a unprofessional way the plates looks dirty. Waiters looks lost. The coffee arrived late and it was burnt. I think that young man is a owner he trying to be friendly but with fake smile totally creepy. I suggest everybody not to visit this place its terrible...
Food and coffee were ok but the service was haphazard. Our young waiter was more focused on trying to be funny and amusing than concentrating on the task at hand, leaving our water glasses empty and forgetting our coffees.
This is the new kid on the block, here Blackberries used to be. Brightly-lit on the inside (even during the day), it looks a little daunting to enter. Kind of like walking on stage or onto a film set.
We sat outside to test the coffee. We both had large cappuccinos, specifying hot and strong. Highly unusual for me to order a cappuccino, especially on a hot Sunday afternoon, but it's always a good test, as there are so many things to go wrong. And they did. (The young waiter was exceedingly conscientious and solicitous, so full marks to him.)
First of all, I have to say, they looked very photogenic, with a perfect leaf design etched into the foam. If only I favoured that sort of thing. The cocoa (or chocolate powder, more likely) was commingled with the froth, so at least there was no dry powder to contend with. They were strong enough, (just) hot enough, but the flavour was sour; the coffee had that stewed quality that detracts from all semblance of coffee characteristics. And there was no aroma, to speak of.
We went inside to pay and, while her counterpart was quite effusive, the woman I gather to have a financial interest in the establishment tried, erroneously, to blame the young waiter for the trouble she was having with the digital register. Not a good look. And neither her or her partner asked how our coffee was.
I smelt cynicism, not coffee. if the proprietors are this lax, arrogant and clueless at the 'grand opening', I shudder to think where it'll go from here. (And you'd think some small gesture in honour of the opening would be advisable, to predispose loyalty.) Pity. It's local.
I wanted to like and frequent it. Much better coffee 'round the corner, at Dolcini. Or at home. $3.90 for a (regular) cappuccino, of this diabolical quality, is highway robbery, too. They boast Campos, but God only knows what they've done to it.
