I was on a casual walk when i visited the restaurant and ordered vanilla flavoured coffee and the taste was very average and vanilla flavour couldn't be felt much. Even the cappuccino tasted below average.

Lovely food here and nice to sit on the cliff top and watch people go by. Also have a nice roof terrace. No alcohol though. If you want a drink go to ABBA next door instead.

I came here for breakfast one day halfway through my trip, and came back for breakfast every day after that. The mocha chiller was excellent!

These guys have internet even during power cuts in the village but I did not really enjoy their food. My friend loved their coffee. I just ordered ice latte once and can't say the same.

Came here based on TripAdvisor ratings, was only a handful of people dining compared to the previous evening when it seemed pretty full when we walked past.
