Gorgeous scones and coffee, lovely surroundings and staff. Really worth a visit. We sat in the window and at last the sun came out. The weather could have ruined our vacation, but having a nice place to chill out was fantastic

After 15 min of being ignored by staff we got up and walked out. Not as if they were busy. Only one table in when we arrived. They came and took there order and never came back from behind counter.
