A great place to stop for a tea/coffee as you while away the time in Salamanca. Have been here multiple times and always receive friendly service.

After arriving in Hobart mid morning we looked for somewhere to eat. Found this delightful place with excellent food. Staff are happy, polite and helpful. Food and drinks are served in a reasonable time. I would suggest trying their Eggs Benedict.... amazing!
