Meeting with a couple in this busy breakfast cafe. Great coffee, baked pasteries or afternoon lunch than late afternoon ice cream treat for the family. Fresh made bread coming out of the oven is something you don't see everywhere

They do have gift cards, just call them and they will work with you to get it purchased over the phone. Then they will hold it for someone to pick up or mail to you.
