Good coffee. Easy parking. Fresh roasted beans. My go to roaster - beans are roasted to perfection and they only buy quality beans. I have been buying roasted beans from them for 4 years. I don't bother with other roasts - their fingerprint beans are...my favorite.More

I don't like coffee, but I love coffeeshop. I came there for a light lunch. I picked the cheese and ham croissant that was freshly baked. I would have love a fruit juice, but they don't have it. The waiter walked with me to shops...next door to show me where I could find one. He didn't mind I buy it somewhere else, It didn't happen, but what a customer service!More

Hidden away behind the Engen in Nottingham Road this delightful Coffee Shop deserves to be discovered. When tired of browsing, crafting, brewing, Lineage will restore your sanity. Strong, aromatic coffee. The carrot cake was moist and not too sweet. Tee served with style. Strong and...tasty. Well done.More

Lineage has the best coffee in Hillcrest - the owner and staff eat, live and breathe coffee! They also have a limited but high quality menu of breakfasts, croissants and sandwiches. One of my favourite places to go.

Love the vibe in this place. Definitely a spot where people are taking a quick break while catching up on emails. Coffee machines for sale and others being repaired. Quirky atmosphere. Good coffee. Parking can be a challenge. Indoor seating only.

I went today to get our regular fix and I was really watching the staff at Lineage make coffee - what an art. It's the best cappuccino and on that first sip makes me think of the best cappuccino I had many years ago in...Bologna, Italy!! Well done guys, you ROCK!More

Truly the BEST coffee we've tasted so far... very strong, rich and absolutely spectacular, with almond and soya milk options for those not having dairy. Friendly service and fabulous vibe, just wish the pastries were available on weekends too :)

I don’t go here often but this week I’ve been in 3 x. Really just got coffee. I noticed their cake selection which was lovely I didn’t try it. There are only two menu options of sandwiches but still not bad. Their coffee is really...tasty. Now that may seem strange as some would say coffee is coffee but that isn’t true. Some are bitter or the mix isn’t right but here they hit it spot on. They make their own coffee too. Open from 6.30 am. Pop in. Bev MooreMore

This amazing coffee shop is tucked away in a small center in Builders Way. Owned and managed by Craig, he has a passion for coffee and carefully selects where his beans are sourced from. Then skilfully roasted and sometimes blended the bean is ready for...the next step ... extracting the flavour to bring out the best in the bean. The team are amazing and have become "family" to me with their kindness and open demeanour assisting anyone who needs some guidance in how they would like their coffee. I rate Lineage highly and would recommend that any coffee connoisseur should visit them to taste and procure their amazing coffee. Lineage also sell beans and machines so that you can take the experience home with you.More

This is absolutely the best coffee i have ever had, Starbucks has nothing on these guys. I love their coffees from all over africa. Their blends and the atmosphere is great, i love this place. They even let us go to the back to see...their coffee roasting process. Their staff has a vibe. It’s great. I sit there and work sometimes. It’s quite enough for thatMore

One can always judge the quality of a restaurant by how busy it is. Well, on a chilly Saturday morning Lineage was packed and for very good reason. The ambiance, service and great coffee. So, if you love your coffee, try Lineage. Its really impressive!
