REVIEW

Passing Federal Coffee Palace on a daily basis and seeing many people exiting the place with purple paper cups, I am curious as to what this little place has to offer. It is situated within the outer walkways of the iconic GPO. Not much shelter from the hush wind and the bristling cold, especially in the cold Melbourne winter (even though they have the make shift heater above the seats along the wall!).

J and I met up during lunch and grabbed a quick bite. He ordered a latte which came with a beautiful swirl on top! We both reckon that it requires some great skills to make it look this good! The coffee was smooth and light.

J also had a pizza of the day which was made on the spot. The crust was thin, the ingredients used were fresh, it had salami, tomatoes and was sprinkled with cheese lightly. The overall taste was not too overpowering, it was an awesome serve.

I ordered an iced chocolate, ¬†which tasted very much like something that I can make at home with Cadbury chocolate powder and milk. I think that they can do without the ice and give it a better blend? I will prefer the iced chocolate I had at Mister Close than FCP’s.

FCP is definitely a fantastic place for a quick bite /coffee and delicate and attentive service!
