We enjoyed lunch here as the food was a bit different from just sandwiches or everything-with-chips. Very popular with families with young children it has a good spot right next to the paddling pool. Very pleasant service and freshly cooked, piping-hot food.

Whenever we're in town we always head to besty and spinkys for breakfast. It's good value, always hot and they do a lovely vegetarian sausage.

We liked this cafe so much we returned before leaving the island. Great quality food, super friendly staff. The fish finger sandwiches were the best ever. Relaxed atmosphere. We'll be back. Highly recommend.
