The holiday period is upon us and I am already thinking about where I am going to source my precious cup of liquid gold (that’s coffee for those playing at home!). To help my fellow caffeine addicts and foodies, here is the Christmas holiday opening hours of some of the most popular cafes in the area (listed alphabetically). You’re welcome!
