An amazing little cafe/health store. Great food and very healthy. The only down side was that there is no lift and the cafe is upstairs. Didn’t bother me but some people could miss out.

I have eaten at the Toucan many times over the past few years and always been very impressed. Today was slightly different. Not possible to view the dishes of food. Smaller portions. Less vegetables in salad. More expensive. I prefer how it was before
