Yes.

Save your money on this cookie-cutter cafe.

Go to HABIT on Pandora or Discovery Coffee on
Discovery.

I don't mean to sound harsh... but this is not the Artigiano of the early days...

This is an EARL's version of the specialty coffee experience.
Pretty much soulless.

The Piccolo's to the best of my knowledge are no longer associated with ARTI - so it is just a growing corporate Starbucks-like behemoth.

Coffee quality? Early 90's era Starbucks...

Wow ... Colin ... what do you sound like when you want to be 'harsh'? :laugh:

Cheers, Guy :side:

We do have so much good coffee in Victoria now we can afford to be harsh :)

At least it's a local, Canadian run Starbucks-like behemoth.

I'll be going elsewhere though.
