Metropolis Mercantile + Café

183 Main St (South entrance)

You can’t be everything to everyone. Metropolis begs to differ. One part café with an on-site kitchen that bakes up fresh melt-in-your mouth treats, sandwiches, and soups, the other part of Metropolis is a retail shop that offers a gamut of goodies from household items and jewellery to clothing and even vintage furniture.
