The new menu at Barista Lavazza gives the café goer 16 extra lip smacking reasons to step out.

Riding on the popularity of the Barista Lavazza Classic Mojito, the Basil Breeze, Pin-up Kokum and Deep Blue Sea Mojitos are exotic twists on the original minty thirst quencher. The Aqua Effect and Swanky Mango Ice Cream Soda’s come recommended for tropical weather.

The Kokum Granita completes the range of non-coffee based beverages on the new Barista Lavazza menu whilst a shot of espresso, butterscotch, ice cream, whipped cream and butterscotch crunch are the makings of the Butterscotch Crunch of the Indulgent Cold Coffee range. Barista Lavazza serves up fully-fledged breakfasts, lunches and dinners. In addition to existing soups and starters, the chefs have introduced a new salad menu for the healthy at heart. Notable changes on the mains include a delicious curried prawn risotto with garlic bread, wholesomely satisfying for those with a healthy appetite.
