I have been going to kiwi cafe for about 4 years but since I had a baby I do not get to go as often because their high chair straps are all broken, ect. For such a successful place I would expect better.

We have always loved the Kiwi Cafe. It has such a variety of sandwiches and other delicious dishes. They also have a gluten free option for almost every sandwich as well as cookies.
