Delicious and fresh local food for lunch! The plates are generous and there is a large selection for every taste and diet. The place is cool, very small and looks like ‘nothing’ but it is so good!!

Tried the soup, wraps, sandwiches and salad bowls. Never been disappointed - always happy and satisfied after eating here. People who own it are friendly and have high standards for what they serve. Highly recommended for breakfast, lunch or dinner.
