Bistro
“Check out the over-looking scenery at the Roofdeck restobar, a cozy and nice place to hang out with your friends. Also comes with a live band.”
  • 3 locals recommend
Bakery
“Our mainstays, the Banoffee Pie, Dark Chocolate Tiramisu Cheesecake and Chocnut Oreo Cheesecake will never disappoint. Their hot dishes, Chicken Breast Parmigiano and Hickory Smoked Barbecued Country Ribs are a sure win too. For something quick, grab one of their savoury pies at the counter – Creamy Chicken, Savory Tuna or Cheese and Mushroom. It’s so filling, it can last you the whole day!”

“McCafé serves great brewed coffee and some specialty options for cheap prices. Food to go is a treat in this branch because it doesn't get as crazy-packed as other branches. Walking distance from our unit makes it an easy go-to option.”

“This has been around since I was in college in the early 1990s and it never grows old... grab a beer with friends... dinner is okay if you're not too choosy... only downside is how horrible traffic gets when too many cars come and park... ”
