Bar Valente Café

This is a dine-in review of Bar Valente Café

Today my café review is Bar Valente in Dulwich Hill. Even though it is winter, it was mild enough for a seat outside. Bar Valente has been my favourite café since I moved to the Inner West. However, this is the first time that I have carefully, and objectively considered what I had purchased. One small point: they don’t make fresh muffins. Something I am yet to get over. I must keep pestering them.

Today I had a large, regular mocha (without any extra shots of coffee). The strength of the coffee was, for my palate, a very good blend between coffee and milk. The texture of the milk was creamy and well aerated. Allowing for the fact that it was a mocha, with standard shots, it was not overpowered by the chocolate and quite enjoyable. The coffee arrived quickly and was not too hot, so I was able to enjoy it immediately. Price $4.20, dine in, which for a large mocha is lower than the average of most cafés in the Inner West, and very good value.

Bar Valente has limited indoor seating and ample outdoor seating. It is mum and bub friendly outside, which is protected from the elements and is heated. It is a non-smoking café, which includes the outdoor seating. EFTPOS is available with a minimum purchase of $10.00. The staff are friendly and offer attentive, relaxed service. Despite another café located next door, Bar Valente is very popular with a steady flow of customers, including many local businesses.

Overall, a very good value for money.
