Serving American styled coffee which is a tad too weak for me, but the delicious nutty chocolate cookies made up for it. The sandwiches which are prepared on the spot looked tempting and healthy.

Curried carrot & butternut squash soup was delicious. The tangled thai salad was not only pretty but tasted good too. Great choice of treats - gluten free almond cakes are always my favorite. Loved it all. Will definitely go back many more times!
