Carefully choosing local organic food, Takinoa prepares healthy lunches and tasty snacks. Among these seasonal meals, there are also a lot of delicious vegetarian, gluten-free and lactose-free options.Takinoa1I like to stop by and enjoy a smoothie, meet up for lunch or get a sweet treat. Making sure that we eat well even when we don’t have time, they also deliver lunch boxes at home or to the office.
