We had pasty and donuts and they didn't merit the great Trip Advisor reviews. They had an enormous variety, nice seating area but I've had better. Not bad by any means, just average bout with a huge number of choices.

A great place to stop for ice cream, pastries and drinks at any time of the day. Lots of outside seating too. During our time on the Island we came back here several times. Casual and fun for all ages.
