Small family reunion in Ganges, and we all headed to the Treehouse. Warm and cozy inside - kind of like a real treehouse. Service was attentive, but not fast, but seeing the magic they manage in the tiny kitchen, you have to expect that.

True to its name, the tree lives in, and out, and over the café. Hard to find such a delicately flavoured taco elsewhere. With the damp island weather and the open-sky dining, opt for the soup and a rich (vegan) latte.

I have been there for lunch and dinner many times and have never been disappointed. In the summer season the evening music is a special treat.
