CARE FOR A COFFEE?
When a barista almost refuses to pour your macchiato into a takeaway cup, you know he’s serious about his coffee.
“You need to drink it on the spot, and it has to be hot,” he insists, gesturing to a little black ceramic cup.
While Daniel Cohen is serious about coffee, his business partner Eldad Jungreis is serious about gelato, making Wild Thing a seriously good pit stop for anyone who loves either.
Homemade, organic ice cream flavours ($2.75) include pineapple and basil, Mayan chocolate, and vodka and grapefruit. The coffee tastes delicious and they’ll make you an affogato (gelato with espresso) if you ask.
Wild Thing, we think we love you.
