Polly’s is a flashback to the past. This is a traditional no frills coffee house with lots of offerings that would be familiar to a coffee drinker. The owner Mike Sheldrake is an expert coffee Roaster and coffee purveyor, and has a fondness for golf.
So talk coffee and talk golf with a guy that has forgotten more about coffee than most of the newer trendy coffee houses.
Don’t expect a Seattle or SF type coffee profile, for that is not their style, Polly’s coffee is roasted onsite with a 15 Kilo vintage Probat, and has Polly’s own signature roasting profiles.
Since coffee taste is subjective, go try the place and see what their distinctiveness is. But if you want to convince Mike to embark on a newer trend, good luck for he has been through a few business cycles and is competing successfully with 2 Starbucks in the same area.
