Advice: Sit at the communal table and meet others.

As many of my friends know, one of my favourite past times is visiting cafes both near and far. My friend and fellow coffee aficionado Alejandro and I visited Matchstick recently to not only people watch as much as catchup over some fine coffee and sweets.

Espresso Macchiato

Apple Walnut Cookie

I had my usual Espresso Macchiato with a delicious out of the oven Apple Walnut Cookie, Alejandro had an Americano along with a muffin. You’ll find a simple menu of fine espresso based beverages, tea as well a selection of house-baked goods. You’ll also find minimal design in the décor with ambiance that will have your mind wandering and this is a café you are going to want to frequent!
