@ THE CONCIERGE BOUTIQUE BUNGALOWS

 

Welcome to Freedom Café. Originally cooked up as a small, relaxed restaurant adjoining The Concierge boutique hotel, over the years it has become the heart and soul of the hotel. A union of stylish, off-beat interiors and a love of everything fresh & green. Escape to our oasis for the best brunch in town, a long lazy lunch or a G&T with a difference.
