Generally a good selection of ciabattas and paninis with some other less café type foods such as curry depending on the day of the week. Price is a little high but to be expected when they are the only option for the Innovation Centre.

Nayana and her team provide excellent food freshly prepared daily. The menu changes regularly and every Thursday there is a delightful Indian curry - highly sought after by the tenants at the Innovation Centre.

This is a great facility at the Innovation Centre. Home made fresh food and hand made to order sandwiches. I have eaten here regularly for a number of years and have always found the choice and quality excellent. Good value as well.
