about us

Every item on the menu is made-to-order, including the handmade pasta. smak delicatessen brews fresh coffee every day, using their own brand Uber Coffee. Guests can enjoy anything from a traditional cappuccino to a more ‘hip’ flat white.
Also available are iced coffee frappes, macchiatos, espressos and americanos.
