We stopped in for a coffee and stayed for the poetry! What a lovely place to meet some locals and pick up some meaningful souvenirs. Skip the shops where everything is the same! You won’t be disappointed!!

Nice little shop and cafe well decorated with a great ambience. A lot of little things to see and buy never seen elsewhere. But at the end it’s a shop.
