The food is ok the staff have a serious pretentious attitude problem. The co-op just down the road the staff act more politely and respectful to paying customers.

Short term visitors to Kemptown. Found this gem of an original bakery. Congenial atmosphere and superb selection of breads, lunches and pastries. Friendly professional site. Bakes made on site. Tasty coffees too. Thoroughly recommended for a once a day visit!
