The dishes of this buffet at the Gardenia Coffeeshop are as varied as their rich culinary heritage. Breads are numerous and assorted - pita bread the most popular of all is soft and pliable, making it ideal to scoop up a range of dips from hummus to delicious baba ganoush of roasted eggplant. Saudi Arabian kabsa rice with assorted nuts, Mediterranean mutton couscous and chicken shawarma or cheese kurkure off the action station all await to be devoured.

The sweet delights on offer are a statement on their own! The Baklava with its delightfully rich flavour deserves a special mention whilst the awameh, a popular Syrian sweet, leaves a lingering flavor of cinnamon. The assorted Lebanese sweets give more of the best treats that appear only during this time of the year.

Baked, the new patisserie swiftly serves up a snack menu making it the perfect place to break-fast after work. Succulent aduku roti in a choice of mutton and chicken, samosas, kanji and refreshing drinks are all part of the offerings here.
