Kid Friendly Cafes
Behind a bland and boring surburban street frontage hides a true hidden gem. Bustling and a hive of activity, Oasis Bakery is so much more than just a bakery. It's also a huge Gourmet Food Stockist with lots of middle eastern treats, 'up-market' Western and Organic products, an amazing Cafe and an all-day licensed Eatery.
You'll find aisles of spices, sugary treats, ingredients of the Middle East. That is only half the story. This place also has tangine dishes, kebabs, rice dishes, pizzas, breads, coffee, tea, sugary doughnuts, an array of drinks, fresh dips, cheeses galore, cold items, fruit and veg and almost every other thing imaginable. If you have a sweet tooth there's some pretty good macarons, baclava and petit fours on offer.
The only 'downside' is Oasis has become quite commercial and the prices are more expensive than you would pay for similar products elsewhere. But it's just so good to sit, eat and shop in an environment where they can do no wrong!
If you do have allergies or food sensitivities you will probably feel right at home here. Everything is organic and there are plenty of vegetarian, vegan, gluten and dairy free friendly ingredients.
The cafe is easy to navigate once you know how. Tea, coffee and treats are close to the entrance and you just order from there if that's what you're after or if you want hot food, head to the opposite end, place your order and you'll be given a pager that flashes when your order is ready.
