Over the years I have visited well over a thousand cafes in cities around the globe, in each city I have sought out the cool and hip cafés where creativity can flourish. This café reminds me of some that I had previously visited, and this one is in our backyard so to speak. It’s a large space, exuding creative energy, from a moving film at the back of the café to the art on the walls, funky tables and chairs in different areas around, an indoor picnic table perfect for the hideaway on the side, with couches up front. The menu features a selection of sandwiches, salads, soups and more. Coffees and other beverages, all the food is made from scratch, breads baked fresh each morning, friendly staff and more!
I had my usual beverage of choice which is an Espresso Macchiato ($2.75) along with the Vegetarian Sandwich ($7.50) on a large house-made spinach, feta bun that was filled to the rim with cheese, sliced cucumbers, tomatoes and many more vegetables, delicious goodness on the soft bun. With each of the sandwiches they offer your choice of freshly baked bread (their bread is actually in the form of these large buns) and each comes with a side dressed salad.
I will be returning very soon as this is one of those places that I could call my home away from home!
