Great sheltered courtyard for Sunday lunch good coffee and very enjoyable open steak salad sandwich. Busy Sunday with a lot of locals was recommended by a couple we meet from Hamilton . Will come back again off main road with good friendly buzz

Friends and family have done nothing but rave about this cafe since it... More
Good value breakfast and would like to come back and try the tapas on the menu which sound very tasty.
