We ordered our delicious, healthy, wholesome and reasonably priced picnic lunch from Copia's American Market Cafe

tuna sandwich
fresh tuna sandwich served with salad. We wished the tuna had been a little more on the rare side

cream of mushroom soup drizzled with a port reduction, served with salad and caraway bread. Superb soup, supremely comforting, but why did they have to go and ruin the bread with those attention-grabbing little caraway blighters?

coconut sandwich cookie with chocolate fondant centre that goes all gooey and messy when left in the sun. Fingerlicking good!

light and fluffy banana cake, i didn't get to try.Looked yummy.

Price for lunch $24ish (two soups, one sarnie, one cookie, one cake and a cappucino). The picnic idea is a really great one, but I couldn't help thinking how nice my soup might have looked sitting in a large white ceramic bowl, not to mention to the wastefulness of using non-reusable containers. It seems Copia are aware of this issue, and have provided several different recycling receptacles, going some way to try and make amends.
