Apart from the sweets selection, there is also a wide variety of savouries such as the cold delicatessen section, soup of the day, as well as hot savouries of the simmering Braised Pork with Chorizo and Lentils in Hot Pot with Brioche, which makes for a comfort dish.


The croissants are freshly made, with 2 flavours to choose from: Spicy Tuna with Cucumber, and Ham and Egg Salad with Peppery Maple Corn.
