Fantastic and friendly place that cater to all and even make the kids feel special. Very clean with amazing food and views. This place gets busy and rightfully so. Vegans are catered for as well. You must experience this place for yourself!! Highly recommended.

The cafe may allow dogs on the outside patio if it is not crowded with diners. If not, there is open land outside the cafe where you can you enjoy your drink and be accompanied by your pup, as mentioned by NahNahGo
