What’s Being Said


When we tell our staff in Richmond we are supplying morning tea we always get “are you getting it from Ambrosia”  Everyone seems to make it for morning tea which is testament to how good the food is and add to that the service we are provided with it is an easy choice to use Mishael and her staff at Ambrosia.
