Try coffee and desserts from over 50 exhibitors
Sample coffee ranging from independent coffee houses and specialty roasters to big coffee chains and franchises. Sip on a warm cup of joe with notes of cedar and clove or enjoy a cold brew with a dash of milk when you’re here. For coffee novices, this might well be where you find your favourite blend!
While some people like sugar IN their coffee, others prefer sugar to go WITH them — we’re talking about desserts obviously. Choose from a variety of cakes and pastries or, if you’d like a healthier alternative, try some frozen yoghurt. Yum! Bite into the crispy meringue discs of your rose-flavoured macarons or savour the rich vanilla ice-cream and strawberries of your parfait.
No matter your pick, you’ll come away with high spirits between the caffeine and sugar rushes.
