Our independent bookshops includes a lively café with an appetising selection of cabinet food and the best coffee on campus; our baristas are some of the finest in town. Our staff and customers strongly value the principles of sustainability and ethical supply that our café is built on – we are proud users of local suppliers like Coffee Supreme, Fix and Fogg peanut butter, Libertine Blends and melt-in-the-mouth pastries from French CanCan.
