Our Food and Drinks

We bake everyday, throughout the day. We have our regular items which are made daily and vary in flavour. We think everything tastes great, but our muffins, scones and banana bread particularly go down well!

All items can be served to eat inside, outside or to take away.

Click here to view our daily lunch menu – includes soup, salads and toasted sandwich options which are available the same day every week.



We bake a variety of goods daily.  All but the croissant, sausage rolls and baguette are made from scratch.  To ensure freshness and to accommodate variable demand, we bake throughout the day.  You never know when we might be pulling a fresh batch of triple chocolate cookies out of the oven!


Our scones are appreciated for their crispy outside and fluffy inside – and because we believe that, for example, there should actually be cheese in a cheese scone!  We bake a variety daily, trying to have at least one flavour from each of the following categories- despite labeling some as ‘sweet’ we rarely add sugar to the scones.

  • Savory non-vegetarian: bacon cheese tomato*; bacon cheese potato; pizza
  • Savory vegetarian: cheese jalapeno*; four cheese*; tomato basil parmesan; cheese and herb, potato green onion; carmelized onion
  • ‘Sweet’ non-chocolate: cranberry apple; three berry; lemon poppy seed; raisin; London fog; cinnamon apple
  • ‘Sweet’ chocolate: blueberry white chocolate*; raspberry dark chocolate*; cranberry dark chocolate; peanut butter and jam
  • Unusual flavours: bacon and chocolate*; rosemary white chocolate*; jalapeno and dark chocolate


Our muffins are appreciated for their full flavour and fruitiness, and for not being too sweet. We bake a variety daily, typically with flavours from each of the following categories. 

  • Three berry: blueberry, cranberry and raspberry

  • Chocolatey: blueberry dark chocolate; cranberry white chocolate; cranberry dark chocolate; coconut chocolate banana; raspberry mocha

As with our baked goods, we make soup and salad from scratch, and both have the option to be served with bread or sconotti (like biscotti but made from our twice baked scones).

We will often make more soups or salad according to the season, so more salads in summer and more soups in the winter. Click here for our current daily lunch menu.
