My grandfather, Capt F. Everby used to live in the Fort Flats above so although I never knew him we visit the cafe for a cup of tea as an annual remembrance. Food good and not expensive.

The restaurant occupies a beautiful location on the seafront. The weather was glorious and we enjoyed our coffee sitting in the sunshine. We didn't eat as we'd had a cooked breakfast at the hotel, but the food looked amazing.
