Walked in at 1 pm on a Saturday and the place was busy. Although the place is on the small side there were plenty of waiters and service was prompt. Interesting selection of wholesome options on the menu which is different to your ordinary fare.

We stopped here on our way to the west coast and it was a good decision. They are famous for a various selection of pitas and they are delicious. Personnel working here were extremely pleasant.

A small quaint cafe serving locally sourced fresh produce with a smile. A mix of healthy lite bites, organic produce, great coffees and home made desserts are all to be had in this character laden building which was part of the bastion of the castle.
