First Bakery come cafe we have been into where you cant get a salad roll or wrap, really surprised us, the salad was there as was the bread rolls. Anyway other then that the food was good as was the salad bowl. Maybe im too picky but we love our salad rolls and wraps. Coffee was very good.

I am sad to say that I will never return to this cafe again. I have on more than 4 occasions now received super long wait times, extremely rude service followed by the incorrect and overpriced order containing ingredients I am allergic to.

Always a good place to enjoy a healthy wholesome lunch and friendly local company as this is where the locals hang out. Lots of fresh salads and of course their specialty, pies and freshly baked breads.. all baked on the premises. Gluten free options are available !

Thank yasminlang
