Madisons heavenly treats, cakes and pastries have been described as “out of this world” and are sought after by many local Cafés and restaurants. All meals, cakes and pastries are baked fresh daily on the premises which ensures the freshness and quality in every product that the café produces and also helps to make the café 100% self sufficient in food production.
