We stock fresh bread, local produce, international cuisine ingredients, a large selection of teas, spices and herbs from all over the world and a great choice for those who are looking for organic and/or gluten-free products.

Each year we turn the upstairs of the shop into a dedicated Christmas shopping experience, selling luxury food, beverages and gifts such as hampers, confectionaries and collections of preserves. Click here to view our Christmas display photo gallery.
