Due to limited seating capacity, we kindly ask that you respect our 90 minutes seating limit during our busy times.

About us: 

We produce everything in small batches and only use the best quality ingredients to ensure our end-product is exceptional. Our ingredients are sourced locally where possible and we make everything from scratch, even our graham crackers, and vanilla syrup. To minimize our environmental impact, we use biodegradable products and have a no waste philosophy.



We have delicious desserts, cakes, beverages and the best of all, we serve brunch 6 days a week. Our breads and English muffins are made in house and we serve it with only the best quality ingredients.
