I cannot say enough how awesome Mariposa Market is :)
It's definitely a favourite in our area, and it's always packed with customers.
It's a cafe as well as a bakery and gift shop. The seating for the cafe is excellent - very cozy with wooden tables and chairs, and if you're lucky you can find a spot upstairs on the balcony that overlooks the inside of the shop.
They have tons of yummy drinks, flavoured coffees, cappuccinos, flavoured teas, hot chocolate, etc. And the baked goods are some of the best around.
They make lots of fresh, hearty treats like muffins, tea biscuits, croissants, fresh bread loaves, quiche, paninis and sandwiches, cookies, doughnuts, eclairs, etc and the ingredients change throughout the seasons. Then there are the cakes, dessert loaves, pies, tarts and squares. The cakes from Mariposa are really TOO good, (if you get a birthday cake from Mariposa, you know your family truly loves you! lol)
Everything is always fresh, and you can sample almost everything they have before you buy it (which you most likely will after having a taste).
Seriously, this is one of my all time favourite places to grab a nice coffee and a snack or some lunch. The atmosphere is bustling but cozy and warm, and the quality is exceptional!
