Stumbled across this pastry room and couldn't resist going inside! The fruit is so fresh as well as all their pastries. It is reasonable price and is so delicious. They also do have a very good breakfast deal.

Came here as a group of four based on the great reviews on Trip Advisor. It did live up to its name and we all thoroughly enjoyed the ice cream. Just wish the seating arrangements inside were a little better.

I tasted two flavours, the chocolate was average but I was really surprised how lemon and basil were a great combination.
