I mean coffee...

It starts the day, it gets us through the day and it ends the day. Mehmet researched the right bean! And our brand LaVazza provides a fusion of the smooth taste and rich aroma that our customers crave. Coffee for Mehmet is at the heart of the café and he is always looking at creating new blends with our beans to provide an array of delicious approaches to utilising the coffee bean. 

Our signature muffins are also the best combination alongside our coffee.

In terms of choices we have a selection of options to choose from to cater to meat lovers, vegetarians and vegans taking into considaration allergens to ensure that everyone can enjoy.

From breakfast, paninis, burgers, salad, mousakka, mezes, soups... You name your ideal right meal and we have it! Because meeting our customers' needs is the most important thing to our man, Mehmet!
