Meet Jeff from Muffin Break

Tell us a bit about your cafe?
Muffin Break is awesome- we are a bake in house cafe so all goods are made on site. This means our products are fresher and we can create value through not having to have a middle man. We also have full control of our products and we can employ more staff to bake and create these goods.
