You may think that a $3 babycino is a little excessive. This Mamma may think it is ACTUALLY pretty genius. The clever thinking people at Essenza cafe bring a little more pazzaz with their tiny teacups of bubbly milk. Little bikkies to dip, some glow sticks to wear and a toy to fiddle with - totally worth it especially when you need that extra five minutes to breathe before the coffee hit kicks in and the next wave of parental demands roll on. The cafe is super slick too. It is dark and sophisticated and most definitely stylish in all black, providing an incredible setting to display their incredible pastries, breads and superb espresso.
Mamma's special mention: This cafe is our local go to after a play at Elizabeth Bridge Reserve.
