Once you’re shopped out, you can stop for a coffee, beverage or bite either in the street-front café space called ‘The Brunch Club’ or behind the white picket fence in the sprawling Mexican inspired beer-garden and cantina, complete with giant lawn games, festoon lights and plenty of picnic tables.
