Early evening visit.

Tap East - Experimental Vanilla Latte in the Morning5.60GoodIn good condition but lacking a reasonable balance of coffee and vanilla with far too much of the latter. Sickly, I should have bought just a half

Brief early evening visit. Prices creeping up here from being reasonable, when it first opened, to being flashy shopping centre levels.
