A wonderful place to get soups, sandwiches, lattes and desserts in an environment where you can feel safe ordering because they are food allergy aware and every menu item is labeled with top allergens contained. Try the ginger molasses cookies! Fab!

Cute, trendy little café with fresh baked goods and coffee. We loved the sticky buns and the ham, leek and cheese brioche. The seating is limited and tight on a busy morning.

Tried the roast chicken sandwich and the carrot cake, both were delicious. The seating is quite limited, would love to see this food on offer in larger premises.

I stopped by right before closing and had an excellent lamb sandwich and a soup. The soup was delicious and quite large for the price. The sandwich had a ton of tender lamb and cheese and was quite tasty. Highly recommended for a reasonably priced...More
