Local hangout for the Glebe crowd which has great atmosphere, food and is not that expensive. Almost always half full to crowded, has a bakery, is licensed and has a relaxed coffee shop atmosphere. Always a great choice to drop in.

Small place located in the Glebe. Great selection of veggie option with some baked goods with specialty grains. You can order at the counter or go to the sit down area in the back. Fair prices.
