Great selection of coffees, teas and goodies

Dropped by for a quickie breakfast here. Food was good but pre-made and just reheated. Loved the sausage roll, yummy.

I like the atmosphere but I want good coffee in a coffee shop and Ashanti doesn't have it. Very bland, weak coffee. That's a deal breaker for me.

The coffee was excellent here. We stopped by for a light lunch with wraps. Too bad they didn't have soup that day. The staff would warm up the wraps, which came with a few chips and carrot sticks.

My visits here have ranged from Amazing to mediocre at best. I no longer order lattes just to eliminate the room for error. The brewed coffee is nice, as well as the fresh baked goods. They used to have a raspberry 5 spice muffin that I loved that I haven't seen in a while...
