What you really need to know is this - we care about food, a lot! That's why we use fresh, seasonal and whenever possible, local ingredients! Everything in our cafe is made from scratch with a lot of love and attention. We pickle + ferment our own vegetables, smoke our own meats, and bake our pastries, baguette, sourdough, and bagels fresh every morning.
All our sandwich sauces, simple syrups for our coffee bar, infused oils, crackers - literally everything is made from scratch in our kitchen.
Our Cafe + Bistro offers a range of sweet and savoury pastries and our staple baked goods include - the maple walnut bun, savoury danish, chocolate croissant, bacon + egg brioche, and our famous sesame sourdough loaf.
HOT TIP: These crowd pleasing treats go quick and the early bird get the worm!
