Truly a great place to sip an organic coffee or a tea with or without food. We took a latte and masala chai with peanut butter cookie and ginger cookie. All was very good, prepared with care. Also a great service.

This Bridgehead is about 17 minutes' walk from Parliament and sits on busy Elgin Street. Space is limited so it's important to get there well ahead of time if you're hoping to hold a meeting. the coffees and snacks are at the usual high level.
