Ate there twice in one week - Lunch was great, nice panini's - very tasty and fresh. Had the hot apple cider since it was a bit chilly out and it was so good. Service was quick and friendly.

The Local is a great place for a cuppa Joe, a nosh & reading the morning paper. You can also enjoy their ice cream in one of the few places in the area to grab a cone!
