Courthouse Cafe & Larder

Top choice cafe in Alexandra

Fairy lights and bounteous botanical displays dispel any lingering austerity in this stone courthouse building, dating from 1878. The counter groans under the weight of an extraordinary array of baked goods (cakes, doughnuts, croissants and more), which compete with gourmet brunch and lunch options – and if Jack's rolled ice cream happens to be on the menu when you visit, you'd best save room!
