The Carnevale Coffee Cafe on East Avenue, Clarence Park is hugely popular and the coffee is pretty good.
I've noticed that passing Police patrols regularly stop for a beverage - that's a good sign.
They roast and blend beans for purchase.
After 2 years of research they have developed a green pod which contains no chemicals, pesticides, enhancers or artificial flavours - it makes you wonder exactly what is in the other commercial coffee pods. These new green pods fit Nespresso machines - a good marketing ploy.
Carnevale owners, masterminds Chris Hoskin and Paolo Scidone, have developed 4 single varieties from Ethiopia, Indonesia, East Timor and Mexico.
I prefer the Ethiopian.
A great effort!
If you want a big breakfast and excellent coffee (especially on the weekend) then pop it.
