Tonight our friend Captain Intensity is leaving his desk and jumping behind our bar to shake up some Mojitos and Martinis.
We were selling the truffled egg toast for lunch today and those who went for it were mightily impressed and rightly so, it’s delish. Today was our second day of doing breakfast from 8am and we’re already seeing a bigger smile on the face of those commuters who are trying our awesome coffees and pastries.
With all the sampling we’ve been doing we’re actually looking forward to the free Running Club we’re doing tomorrow night. Just turn up at the Canteen at 7pm if you would like to take part.
Enjoy small plates as bar snacks or starters or choose a selection of plates as your main – tapas style. Each plate is cooked to order and will be served as it’s ready, don’t wait to get stuck in!
