It was mid-day and I wanted a caffeine fix. I walked over to Toby’s Estate. I was a little surprised that it was a tiny place with just a single counter to take orders, a barista, an impressive-looking coffee machine and of course, bags upon bags of coffee beans. The well-lit display case, showcasing an assortment of mouth-watering pastries were a temptation I had to duel with. There was nobody else there, perhaps because I had wolfed down my meal before anyone could say “Lunch Break.”

There were no other tables and chairs for customers to lounge in. There was just a lone steel table on the right and a few wood-top stools. The other side was a condiments station. The no nonsense “coffee and go” concept is clear.
