Arlena Bosshard’s Swiss-German heritage and interest in nutritional and sports supplements is immediately evident when you enter this eclectic general store-cum-coffee-shop.
Arlena stocks an interesting range of organic gourmet grocery items – think coconut sugar, date syrup and a range of gluten-free treats. She also offers a large selection of certified organic German skincare and Lavera cosmetics. And because Arlena is Swiss-German, two walls are dedicated to a display of genuine cuckoo clocks, all of which are for sale.
Perhaps the biggest appeal here, however, is Arlena herself, who treats customers old and new like friends as she shares her knowledge, gained after many years in the pharmaceutical industry.
The Bio-Bean organic coffee is seriously good, and Arlena also serves freshly-made sandwiches and beautiful home-made cakes.
