The Good Sort's Kate Ross says the lattes are a great alternative to coffee, and that their drink selection will perk you up with non-traditional ingredients including beetroot, green charcoal and black sesame, along with tumeric and black pepper

She said they are "focused on wellness" and choosing "interesting ingredients."

What really has customers going crazy is the rainbow latte. Ross says it was fun and unique experimenting with different flavors to create what's become their signature drink, which includes blue algae.

You can also grab a bite to eat at The Good Sort. They offer an Asian-inspired porridge called congee, and while traditionally it is more savory, it's more sweet at The Good Sort. The ingredients include fresh fruit like cranberries and coconut cream, and Moss described the dish as hearty and great for breakfast.
