We had some sandwiches and coffee to start our day. We recommend a lot the Rise&Shine on croissant and the Sun Up on baguel and multigrain. Fresh fruit with yoghurt are also very good. Will come back tomorrow for a grab and go.

I had the Pacific bagel, which was a whole grain bagel with lox, smoked salmon, capers and red onion. A really delicious breakfast. They also have a lot of other breakfast options. Staff really nice and friendly! 😊

Breakfast sandwiches were amazing and the location was perfect. There was no wait as well. Highly recommend the bagel, egg, cheese, and bacon sandwich.
