which is broad, flexible and well priced,
with something to suit everyone’s taste

options and are expanding our vegan

Nikki said the cafe acted as a home
base for her catering business.
“We are not just your normal run-of-the-
mill cafe,” she said.
“We host theme nights with alcohol.
“The last one was a Greek night and we
will have different themes in the future.
“Keep an eye on our Facebook page for
upcoming events and daily specials.
“We do special menus for occasions like
Mother’s Day and can host functions and
provide catering through the cafe as well.
“Our customers’ opinions are valued
and we are always looking for feedback.”
