This is a casual but very popular place. And I can understand why. Freshly made and tasty rolls. Good coffee too. The service is friendly and comes with great smiles. Lots of outdoor and indoor seating. Just wish it was open for dinner too.

This venture aims to provide indigenous workers with hospitality experience. The service is excellent as is the food. The coffee is a highlight. The cafe is well patronised so it would be good if there was more seating in the airconditioning on hot days.
