Lovely cafe in beautiful surroundings with stunning views and very tasty drinks, had the St Clements orange drink and a yummy toasted pitta bread! Very friendly staff! Well worth a visit away from the harbour! Just walk up a few steps😁

Had the meze sharing plate, everything Homemade and really nice as was the chocolate and courgette cakes we tried. After the 371 worthwhile step climb(yes 371!) it's a lovely place to stop off before exploring the village
