Philosophy

We take pride in doing things properly with just about everything leaving the kitchen made in-house and from scratch. From sauces, stocks and pickles through to fresh juices, chai and sodas, we do it the hard way and make it ourselves – it doesn’t make our lives any easier, but it’s so worth it.
