Week beginning December 6th - Christmas Treats

Now we're talking. It's Christmas, it's Christmas!!!!

Pan Forte, a traditional Italian Christmas slice/cake
Real rum balls, covered in chcolate and coconut
Own made mince pies

We love a good Christmas here at Kaffeine, and as we are all from New Zealand and Australia, having snow and cold weather at this time of year makes it all the more special.(some of our staff saw snow for the first time ever this week!)

Mrs Kaffeine and I especially love being in cold weather at Christmas time, and having friends and family over or staying in a lovely cosy pub/cafe eating great food, with welcoming and warm service and with great friends and family having a laugh. It's brilliant.

So we try to create that atmosphere at Kaffeine, the windows all fog up and you cannot see inside, but when you come in it is toasty warm, the lovely smell of coffee permeates the air and combined with Chef Jared baking all the wonderful regular treats and now the special Christmas treats downstairs, it just makes you feel warm and comfortable all over.

Come on in, stay a while......enjoy.
