Sorry to hear your order was delayed. It is unavoidable at busy times however I hope the coffee was worth it when you returned!

There are plenty of cafes in Newark but this one takes some beating for light bites. Location is next to Civil War Museum. Spacious: clean: attractive: helpful staff: competitively priced food and drinks. A joy to visit. This is an excellent venue.
