A great atmosphere for small meetings with light food, desserts, and great non-alcoholic beverage selection and limited and interesting alcoholic choices. Very fresh and mostly locally sourced items. Or just drop into the warm and friendly atmosphere for a great coffee.

Lovely cafe and bakery in nice location, walking distance from Lansdowne. Street parking available, as well. My favourite sandwich is the "wahakah". Friendly service each time I visit. Accepts cash and debit only.
