Saw several glowing reports about this little market/cafe/bakery and it did not disappoint! Had a wonderful selection of healthy, tasty salads and simple roasted chicken. I had a hard time choosing just two types of salad to go with chicken- and ended up with plenty leftover for another meal. Staff was very helpful and the atmosphere was great. Highly recommend.

I already ate a meal at The Market Bar & Restaurant, so wasn't hungry. Ordered a slide of toffee & chocolate cheesecake to go...delicious! The place was packed with people enjoying the food. Everything looks delicious.

This is a definite stopping point for your early morning or mid morning coffee break or meetings. The staff are delightful, the scones, muffins, cakes and sandwiches all excellent and their coffee or hot chocolate very good. A touch pricey it is still worth it as the quality remains consistently high everyday of the week. Bon Appetit!!! Cary Languirand

We absolutely adored this cafe. I recommend it highly!! We went for breakfast and thought the prices were good for the portion size you get. This cafe is easy to get to and worth it!

I visited here with my family there was 5 of us in total. When I went up to order food and drinks I found the staff to be very rude and did not give my order their full attention, I found them to be quite dismissive and felt like they didn't care about the custom. I had to repeat my... More
