We loved the bakery items but was disappointed in the latte's! The ambience is outstanding but no WIFI!
The atmosphere at Pannikin is great. It has such a laid back relaxing feel. Top that off with great food and coffee and you can't go wrong.
The coffee and gluten free muffin were divine. The parking situation pretty much was a nightmare! Loved the little gift shop inside. Wish I could have sat under an umbrella table in the large front grass area and enjoyed the fresh air!
